Lido Locarno is a unique oasis for recreation, sport and well-being.Its hot spring, swimming pool, water slides and play pools make it the best equipped stateof-the-art aquatic park in Ticino. Indoor and outdoor pools are open throughout the year and are located on one of the most beautiful beaches of Lake Maggiore, surrounded by a dramatic alpine scenery on one side and the magnificent lake on the other. Visitors can swim, relax and have fun in the pool and lose themselves in the lake's tranquility.

We spent a warm, sunny afternoon at the lido in Locarno. The location just outside of the town center is great, the outdoor pool had an incredible view of Lake Maggiore and the surrounding snow-capped mountains. The pools and facilities all seemed to be clean and the slides were a big hit with the kids.

The family has visited the lido many times and never been disappointed in any way. The facilities are excellent but I would recommend avoiding peak times in the summer when it can be difficult to even find somewhere to sit. My suggestion is ' go midweek' and avoid August. The only very odd thing is they close the lido for... More

Best moment to go is during the week, so you can avoid times where the swimming pool is too full. The slides are fun, swimming pool outside is warm enough to chill a couple of hours. I like it much more in Winter as it's less crowded.

Locarno's lido is one to visit on a bright sunny day as well as a clear chilly evening, with several indoor and outdoor pools catering for all ages and activities. As a semi local, living in the area for almost a year I never tired of visiting this public pool-come-healthclub: whether it was the prospect of racing down a flume... More

Lido Locarno is a great family day out. They've got a number of indoor and outdoor pools, water slides and inflatable obstacle courses available, plus a very warm outdoor pool for adults to relax in whilst the kids are playing. Pretty good value for money too for Switzerland!

We visited Lido Locarno on a nice, sunny day and had a great time! They have several indoor and outdoor pools at different temperatures and activities. There are fun pools for the little ones, a relaxation pool, a diving pool, awesome water slides, pools for lap swimming and, of course, a beach on lake Locarno. The view is amazing and... More

Every time, hot and sunny outdoors, cool and rainy indoors, the best arrangement of water pools in the Ticino. The clean lake Lago Maggiore in summer for the swim in the open water, the 50 m outdoor pool for sports afficionados, the jumping towers up to 10 m with a safe separate and deep pond, and the heated outdoor play...

This is a new development in Locarno, and is well supported by locals and visitors alike. We didn't go in but the facilities looked excellent from the outside!

Lido Locarno is located a short walk or bus ride from the centre of Locarno. We had a Ticino card so it was free, although we had to pay for our younger child who didn't need the Ticino card for transport and other attractions. There are two indoor pools and a number of outdoor pools, although when we were there... More
