Looking for that Caribbean feeling?

Tuesday, August 02, 2016

Stretched out on a sun lounger, sipping a cocktail, gazing over turquoise waters? Working up a sun tan while you read a good book? This is the perfect vision of a beach holiday. But sometimes, the fabulous is right outside your door – or in our case, around the corner from our four-star hotel. Just 5 minutes from the signinahotel, or 1 hour and 45 minutes from Zurich, lies Lake Cauma. It’s one of Switzerland’s most beautiful bodies of water, and it’s the perfect place to relax. On Tripadvisor, Dorissaxel describes the lake very fittingly: “A Caribbean vibe in the heart of the mountains!”

The crystal-clear water with its exceptional colour immediately calls to mind white sandy beaches, palm trees and, of course, the sea. Pure relaxation! Corinne80 writes: “Lake Cauma was on my bucket list ... I had my wish granted, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed!!! The lake is really unique. Beautiful!” The positive comments keep coming: “Magical and crystal clear. Wow!! An oasis in the Alps. Simply great.”

According to the current 20min.ch Mountain Lakes poll, there are none more beautiful than Lake Cauma – with Lake Cresta a close second. Both lakes are true highlights of Flims Laax Falera and are well worth a spot on your list, too.
