Good day out. Full of space and pools for any need. Perfect for a family with all the comfort you might need. There is even a sand beach directly on the lake in case you do not like pools. You can rent chaise longue and beach umbrella Value for money!

Well-kept and tidy with four pools and a sand beach at the Lake of Lugano, this is a very nice place for swimmers and sun-bathers of all ages. There is a restaurant with good food and a cocktail bar. We stopped here on a very hot day for a few hours on our way to Tuscany. Lido di Lugano is... More

I paid to get access to the pool and lake area for the afternoon. I found it worth it as I used the lap pool before I headed to the beach to tan. If you have young kids with you it would be worth it as there are lifeguards, kid activities, showers and everything else. If you don't plan on... More

On the lake you could find few places like this, this is one of the biggest and the most crowded. I use to go in other places, smaller but much more comfortable like Lido Riva Caccia.

We are two American adult couples, travelling through France, Italy and Switzerland for a few weeks. On our way out of Varese, Italy (we were on our way to Bern, Switzerland), we decided to stop at the Lido and get some swimming and R&R in. The pools were the cleanest I have ever seen, anywhere. The grassy area was immaculate... More

Amazing place with amazing view, very spacious. Would recommend for all the sun seekers, you can swim both in a pool and in a lake! Might be crowded on weekends, but there is really a lot of space not like in other Lidos I have been.

The Lido is a good place to relax. I was laying on the grass area, and there where no noise or annoying kids running around. The pool is very good with wide lanes. Unfortunately the 10 meter tower was closed that day. There a are lot of lifeguards around the pools. It's a little expensive, if you only need to... More

Wonderful area by the lake with a sandy beach and several swimming pools to suit all ages and stages. Lovely grassy areas for picnics with plenty of shade from the trees.

We've holidayed in the area for years - all the kids want to do is "LIDO". Great views of the lake & mountains - also good value. With small kids, the number of life guards on duty is a real comfort.

Great views! Great facility! Great atmosphere! Many things in Switzerland but this is a bargain for an outdoor activity in the summer. It has everything you need and you can stay all day! It was a present surprise to find this place.
