Swim and relax: the beaches on Lake Garda

Swimming in Lake Garda is a unique experience: crystal clear, fresh water, pebble beaches embraced by green meadows perfect for relaxing, excellent services and sport right on the shore, unique scenery and sunsets that should not be missed. The most beautiful places can be reached easily from our hotel on foot and by bike!
Here are a few ideas…

The most beautiful beaches on Lake Garda

From the Garda Sporting Club Hotel you can easily reach the beaches that join the two charming towns of Riva and Torbole.

  • Miralago and Sabbioni, Riva del Garda. Ideal for relaxation with meadows where you can lie down and sunbathe, a playground for children and a platform in the water for incredible diving!
  • Spiaggia dei Pini, Riva del Garda. Known by surfers as well as youngsters because there are lots of bars and services for days of endless fun.

A few tips…

Swimming in the lake is fantastic but always pay attention to the weather conditions: the winds that are so loved by windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing enthusiasts create waves that are not suitable for swimming. Swimming is not allowed in the area where the River Sarca flows into the lake and is well signposted.



Other lakes not to be missed

Not far from our Hotel in Riva del Garda there are also a few small lakes nestling in the mountains: they are lakes Tenno, Ledro, Lagolo, Terlago and Lamar. They are certainly smaller than Lake Garda but no less fascinating and provide days of relaxation and swimming and diving in the clear water. On the grassy shores there are many bars and restaurants as well as places to hire canoes, kayaks as well as to try a wakeboard.

Training in the pool

In addition to our semi-Olympic outdoor pool in Riva del Garda you can also train in the Enrico Meroni indoor public pool; here the lanes reserved for free swimming are the ideal solution on rainy days. Once a week there are also coloured inflatables for children to have fun on in the pool!
