Lake Morat: The Beach of Switzerland

A beach in Switzerland is almost unbelievable. The Swiss love their lakes and no one can blame them for that. Lakes serve as miniature oceans. Despite several other differences, they have one thing in common: water.

The shores of Lake Morat comprise the town of Avenches and Murten. It serves as a camping site with state-of-the-art amenities. The period from April to September is popular for camping. There are plenty of sandy beaches that take care of the needs of sun-bathing. There are plenty of sand castles, too.

Lake Morat comprises a marina with the availability of dry and wet moorings. The climate around Lake Morat is relatively mild. It has a good combination of sand and shade. It is an ideal place with the aura of a beach.

Lake Neuchâtel, Lake Morat, and Lake Bienne navigation company operates in all kinds of weather throughout the year. It stops at roughly 35 landing stages, including towns, villages, and beaches. Ile St-Pierre, the place of stay for Jean-Jacques Rousseau, is one of the landing stages. The view is brilliant during a lake crossing or a sail toward the shores.
