Ovid Island

The Ovid Island on Siutghiol Lake is one of the places that exerts true attraction to the tourists who arrive in Mamaia resort. Along the centuries, the small piece of land has stirred the curiosity and imagination of the people, who have woven a series of legends. One of these stories is connected to the origin of the name of the island. They say that, while he was exiled, the Latin poet Ovidius Publius Naso retired on this small piece of land in order to write his poems, thus the island was named with his name. In fact, the specialists have not found any proof to attest the presence of the poet on this small island of Lake Siutghiol.
However, the legend remains standing till nowadays and there are still people who believe it. In past centuries, the island was populated with fishermen who used to build shelters here, but also with gardeners who took advantage of the fertile land of the island. Once the touristic potential was identified, the island was transformed in a beautiful leisure complex, preserving this status till nowadays.
In order to reach this island which is rich in vegetation, there is a boat which leaves the Casino area at short intervals of time. One can enjoy a quite hike on the lake till reaching the island. A beautiful tourist complex is set up on the Ovid Island, and those who wish to stay they can do that for several days. The rustic restaurant of the complex offers mainly fish dishes, and every night there is a band who maintains a beautiful atmosphere.
