If you are imagining yourself at the beach in summer, but you know you have to be suffering the asphalt, we want you to know that in Madrid there is a beach. What you read, if you are making summer plans in Madrid you can go to the Pantano de San Juan to cool off. But if you want to have a great day, come and see us first because you’re coming through our door.

Although Madrid is in the center of the country, the reality is that there is a beach, exactly 75 kilometers from the capital; we are talking about, of course, the Pantano de San Juan. For this reason, more and more people are taking advantage of a day off to go to this natural reservoir in Madrid.

What to do in the San Juan reservoir

The San Juan reservoir is the perfect place to escape the heat of the capital. Besides, it is true that doing nothing all day long is boring, so most people choose to do something to entertain themselves and have a great day with their friends and loved ones.

Group sports: Paintball

There is nothing better than having fun with friends, so the best way to make the most of your trip to Pantano de San Juan is to enjoy Paintball in a group. In addition, if you choose Paintball El Marqués you will not have to deviate from the route.

We are located in Quijorna, on the M-501 road, on the route of the marshes that connects this municipality with San Martín de Valdeiglesias. This way, you can play with your friends or family in the morning and, in the afternoon, cool off in the water of the reservoir, can there be a better plan?

Adventure sports

After enjoying a game of Paintball with your friends, the fun doesn’t stop there. Pantano de San Juan has more than 10 kilometers of beach, ideal for other activities.

Aquatic activities

On the other hand, if you are more aquatic and love the sea, you can always spend the afternoon doing water activities such as flyboarding, water slides, wakeboarding, boat rides and kayaking.

The problem with these water activities, as with adventure sports, is that they are designed to be done individually or involve a large financial outlay.

Therefore, the best thing to do is to release all your energies in the morning in your Paintball game and in the afternoon relax in the waters of San Juan.
