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.

The Lido is a good place when you have nothing to do on a weekend. You can go there with your friends or children and enjoy a good day. The entrance is not cheap nor expensive but the food in there is very expensive. You have sandwiches and fried potatoes and other simple food but the prices are high for... More

The is a main square with buildings covered in cascading flower boxes. On certain days they hold open air markets, festivals & cinema, otherwise just sit at a cafe with an espresso and soak it all in. In this area of Switzerland, the variety of languages you'll hear are amazing!

Lugano is a very chilled city, and the lido just epitomises this. There are many places to sit both in the sun and shade (grassy, beach etc) both of which give easy access to the lake and the swimming pools. The lake is beautiful, stretching out into the mountains, however it can be a little dirty - I suppose this... More

Lugano has a lot to offer & the promenade is a beautiful place to walk or take a boat ride. Lake Lugano is gorgeous. Not far from Como, Italy. You do have to pay to cross the border - 40 Swiss francs - but the ticket is good for a year. We love to visit Lugano - which is in... More

This is a top-notch aquatic facility right in the heart of Lugano. But the lake itself is such a stunner, you might not be interested in a swimming pool right next to it!

I went here with some friends and their families (2 young kids). The Lido has a beach to go swimming in the lake of Lugano (depending on the season, the water can be a little cool for me). At this lido, they also have some swimming pools. The grassy areas where you can sit fill up very quickly, so don't... More

This was somewhere we found for swimming and sunbathing. There is a little sandy beach on the edge of the lake where we hired parasols and sunbeds. there is also an olympic sized pool and high boards. Very good showers and changing facilities.
