Gyomaendrőd is surrounded by countless backwaters (oxbow lakes, billabongs) as the heritage of the 19th century river regulations. All the 16 billabongs display their own colorful characteristic having different functions.
The region abundant in the most varied natural values is the ideal place for active angling and for visitors looking for relaxation.
With the coming of good weather the fishing places are invaded by armies of anglers. The local waters are favored by Hungarian anglers since they are abundant in fish guaranteeing a good catch.
On the banks of the backwaters there are many holiday homes and weekend houses that can be rented. These are ideal for people who would like to spend a few days or weeks with their family or friends in a quiet and calm place close to water instead of in the livelier atmosphere of the Liget Thermal Bath and Spa.
