The Velenje Beach
On 29 June 2013 Velenje acquired another important facility - the Velenje Beach. At the Velenje gravel beach located next to the boathouse, you can sunbathe on well-maintained wooden stand. Showers and toilets are also provided. You can rent a beach lounger and sunshade to enjoy a relaxing sunbathing or choose from a variety of vessels for an exciting water experience. Nearby the well-maintained and vast grass areas offer large number of possibilities for spending your leisure time in the relaxed atmosphere close to the water. The beach bar MiaMia, which is located near the boat house, offers a variety of refreshments from a large number of beverages, ice cream and delicious snacks.
In 2014 the Velenje beach was granted licence of a formal lake resort where water purity and temperature are measured regularly by the ERICO Institute (once a week) to ensure the waters are fit for swimming. The zone where swimming is allowed is well marked and there are life guards on hand at all times.
