Zegrzyńskie Lake

The biggest blue stain on the map. Zegrzyńskie is an artificial lake, created at meeting point of Narew and Bug river. In summer season all the road going from Warsaw to Zegrzyńskie are packed. The most crowded beaches are these around Nieporęt and Serock, however if you turn towards Rynia, you will find some calmer spots.

Dziekanowskie Lake

It used to be the best spot around Warsaw to jump on wakeboard. However, since starting from 2018 there is no wakeboarding station there no more, we can olny recommend it as a good beach spot. Just don’t hang at the main beach, which is overcrowded, and head for the right side of the lake.

Wakeboarding in Warsaw

Few years ago every single paddle and a lake around Warsaw become wakeboarding spot. Some of them were started by real passionates, the other simply by the local entrepreneurs. Until very recentely the best wakeboarding lift was located at Jezioro Dziekanowskie close to Łomianki. However, due to some political argument of those in power, it is now closed.

The remaining available spots are in:



Warsaw – Cypel Czerniakowski

Zalew Zegrzyński

Zalesie Górne
