The best beaches of Lake Garda
Try to imagine crystalline water with always fresh temperatures, a naturalistic setting that rivals contexts further from Europe and a freshwater lake so immense that it looks like a sea: it is Lake Garda and here bathing is truly a charm!
In the summer, on the other hand, spending whole days on the beach is one of the favorite activities of thousands of people. Not just the sea though.
Lake Garda is a destination that knows how to combine the beauty of an immense basin of fresh water with the many water activities that can be practiced in complete safety: from the quiet SUP to the canoe, from the most adrenaline-pumping windsurfing to kite, sailing and simple swims.
Lake Garda – the cleanest beaches
Perhaps few people know that lakes are also classified according to the purity of their water, as is the case with the sea. So here is that Riva del Garda, on the Trentino shore of the lake, together with Limone, Gardone, Gargnano and Tignale, has been awarded the five sails, a recognition attributed by Legambiente and Touring Club to the beaches with the cleanest waters!
Lake Garda: the most beautiful beaches where you can spend a summer day
The three shores of Lake Garda, in the province of Trento, in the province of Verona and in the province of Brescia, all have wonderful beaches.
Certainly, those further north, on Garda Trentino, have the characteristic of resembling an atypical fjord thanks to the very conformation of the lake that “tightens” here and all around the mountains frame the context, making it truly fairytale! The beaches are all made of pebbles, little stones (more or less large depending on the beach) and a beautiful green and well-kept lawn, very comfortable for lying down and sunbathing even without sun beds or chairs.
- A particular mention in the stretch that extends between Riva del Garda, Arco and Torbole, deserves the beach of Pini (Spiaggia dei Pini in Italian)- and next to it also the Porfina beach, loved by the very young and sportsmen – of Riva de Garda, with its modern bar with window and its area reserved for surfers, as well as the nearby Spiaggia dei Sabbioni, equipped with beach volleyball and basketball courts.
- Sailors and wind enthusiasts will certainly choose the beach of Porto San Nicolò in Riva – where the wind blows strongly and where you can enjoy aperitifs overlooking the lake in the many bars overlooking the sails – up to that of Torbole sul Garda, famous for its the wind and its regattas.
- Curiosity: in Torbole, right on the lakefront, you will find the only beach equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds in the whole of Lake Garda Trentino! Perfect solution for families with children in tow or for those who just don’t know how to give up the comfort of a deckchair!
- Another beach not to be missed, especially if you love climbing, is the small lizard beach at Corno di Bò. It is a historic crag shortly after Torbole towards Malcesine, where in addition to being able to climb it will be wonderful to take a dip away from prying eyes.
If, on the other hand, for you the holiday is always in the company of your four-legged friends, both in Arco and in Torbole you can experience the beach in the company of your Fido at the bau beaches present (we invite you to discover them by browsing the website of the Garda Trentino destination).
If you are spending a nice holiday on the Garda side of Trentino, we also recommend a trip to the nearby lakes of Ledro and Tenno and their really noteworthy beaches.
Another beach on Lake Garda not to be missed is the famous Jamaica Beach in Sirmione: crystal clear waters and nightlife. But be careful: it is always very crowded!
The beaches of Navene (after Torbole towards Malcesine) and Limone sul Garda are also wonderful (a splendid experience to live is to combine a morning on the beach with a trip to discover the ancient lemon houses!)
Lake Garda is all to be discovered, all to love! If you are looking for a hotel near the beaches and the lake, the Ambassador Suite Hotel in Riva del Garda is only 100 meters from the beach of Porto San Nicolò and its many cafes where you can enjoy an aperitif with a view. Lake, swimming pool, relaxation and clean and well-kept rooms and apartments.
