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

A fabulous place. Reasonable cost entry (given the fabulousness of the facility.) Great variety of pools, water features and kids' pool options. Plus a lakeside beach, lawn with loungers, play area, a cafe and, most importantly, a view to die for. You can spend all day here, then get the public bus to Ascona for the incandescent sunset (or even... More

The Lido di Locarno, one of Ticino’s most modern bathing facilities and water worlds, is open all year round in any weather. It is equipped with numerous indoor and outdoor pools, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a thermal pool, a children’s pool and four water slides. The complex is huge and nice. I really recommend this new place

I do find this place a bit pricy, but you can't get away from it in the summer. Though the Macha river is a nice, free alternative, if you have time to go there. This place does get quite crowded, but there is a lot to do: lake, pools, slides, taning on the beach. Unfortunately the slides do cost extra.

One of the greatest swimmingpool centres i have visited, even if it is in my hometown :) Great for families with kids. Only disadvantage: you need to chose the right time to visit: on weekends in the summer it can be quite crowded. I recommend a visit to the new annexed, much more quiet spa for a more relaxing saltwater... More
