“No where else can you find a stunning lakeside beach and pool.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

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 what you get, very high. You can't bring anything, food nor drinks, inside the Lido so once you are in there, you have to starve or empty your wallet.

The pools are very good and clean and the place itself is very clean. You can swim or just pass your time cooling in the water. You will have a good day there, just try to smuggle some food and drinks and you will enjoy it even more!

“People-Watching Central”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

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!

“Fun + relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

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 depends on the day. The swimming pool was lovely and clean, with lanes set aside for people wanting to swim lengths, and an area for 'fun swimming.' There are also diving blocks. There is also a kids pool, where there are diving boards of about 10-15m. There are also cafes for refreshment. As it's all open air, the atmosphere is just great for all ages, and definitely worth the 5 Francs entrance fee!

“Beautiful, clean & relaxing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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 the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. Keep a look out for some rather unusual statues & art. Also, Switzerland as a whole is very clean. Not a speck of trash anywhere. Don't miss out on this as well as "Swiss Minatur" which is very close & has miniature recreations of all the major cities in Switzerland. Lovely!
