Sevan

Lake Sevan is a popular summer beach resort. Visitors flock to its shores to enjoy the country’s only beaches and to take to the water for swimming, jet skiing, windsurfing and sailing. It has the distinction of being the largest lake in Armenia and lies at an altitude of 1900 metres above sea level. Unsurprisingly, it’s a good place to eat fish, providing 90% of the country’s fish catch and 80% of the crayfish caught. There’s also a mediaeval monastery on the lake’s sole island.
