Tourism in Szigetbecse mainly revolves around vacationers and fishermen. There is a 9 km long resort by the Ráckeve Danube branch that includes 640 holiday houses.
The village is not located directly on the bank of the Danube because of the risk of flooding.  Instead, Szigetbecse is about 600-1000 metres inland from the Danube, separated by fields, meadows, smaller reeds and forests. This makes this region especially beautiful.

The surrounding forests and reed beds and the colony of summerhouses lining the shore of the Danube at Ráckeve make Szigetbecse a remarkably peaceful recreational destination.
