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.

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

A very nice swimming pool and attractions green and clean area by the lakeshore of Lago Maggiore. Being right by the border with Switzerland, the entrance fee can be paid in Euros, Swiss Francs or Credit Card. About 35 euros per day, per family. Good clean water, and specially the water slides are fun. A bit crowded with small children... More

Living above Locarno, this is one of my regular haunts. I have a yearly subscription to the pool and gym. There are three indoor pools - one for babies, one for 'messing around' and aquagym, spinning etc and a 25m pool for 'serious' lap swimmers. Outside, lakeside, are three more pools, including a big 50m pool, plus a diving pool... More

The Lido Locarno has been going through some extensive upgrades with a new Spa and Restaurant added to the facility. With the attraction of so many pools both inside and outside it becomes a 'must place' to go and cool off, exercise and keep fit. The warm one outside in the winter is a must to experience. Good grounds to... More

Been going there since I was a kid over 40 years ago, the place is magic! On the lake, sunny from sunrise to sunset, a view on all the mountains surrounding Locarno. Swim your laps, let the kids stroll around, whizz through the slides, show off your backflips from the 10m jumping board, enjoy cool drinks and ice cream, no... More
