Perfect vibe! Great swimming. Shade and sun
Aug 2020 • Family
Visiting this beach was the highlight of our trip to the region. It feels like the private beach of a chill boutique hotel. The swimming is great, views stunning. WC, showers, snack bar and meals, lifeguard, sunny spots and spots with shade. Lounge chairs are first-come first served so arrive early. They asked if we had a reservation, so in busy times they may have a capacity. Grass, not sand. Ladders into water plus diving board. Only downside is its tricky to get to, but thats what makes it special! We parked in Gandria (unlimited paid parking, unlike 1 and 2 hour spots closer to Lugano) and walked 25 minutes down. Cant recommend highly enough!

Beautiful, but not the best with children
Aug 2020 • Family
When we call to book he restaurant the feedback was not that good (if we did not have already the ticket booked online probably we will cancel this.
The place it is beautiful (be best thing it is the view) no doubts.
The body guard was very friendly.
The place it is small and just with lack it is not the best to be with a child with 2 years old.
But we have a nice morning and as a couple we plan to go again.

Excellent for light meals
Jul 2020 • Couples
Excellent location, atmosphere and delicious meals! Never have I had a more tasty caprese, and I am pretty sure it is because of the fresh local products. The menu is relatively small and includes light meals like bruschettas and salads.

Great find while walking from Gandria to Lugano. Local beer and fantastic view made me want to stay there longer. Great music selection and friendly staff.

Just at 30 minutes walk from the center or even 5 minutes by bus we has a nice swim in the lake in a quiet environment (but for those who do not like crouds, I've been told that on sundays it get very busy). The food at the bar was also nice and the staff are so friendly. Recommended!

Breathtaking view
Jun 2018 • Family
Since we have been there, we think, the bar has find a new management.
Small card with yummy food, super friendly service and well... the view is just amazing!
There's no pool and you can just jump in the lake (mainly to inform the one with small people) but it's so worthy! A short walk for the parking before the beginning of the Sentiero dell'Ulivo, or if you feel to walk more (about 20-25) parking in Gandria, the scenario is amazing.

Great place to relax and enjoy the lake
Jun 2017 • Solo
This lido is about a mile from Gandria. Take the ferry from Lugano to Gandria and make your way in the olive trail, the lido is right along the path. Like the other lidos in Lugano it is 6 chf to swim and 5 to rent a chair. No charge to eat at the cafe. Clean bathrooms and changing rooms. Nice place to relax and enjoy the lake. Can also take the bus from the main road outside the lido to Lugano central station, about a 10 minute ride.

Charming lido with beautiful views
May 2017 • Couples
We stopped for a drink in May - the lido apparently opens for swimming from 1st June. Very attractive location with bar seating right next to the lake.

Beach life
Aug 2016 • Family
Lake Lugano is a fantastic place to visit, yet there are not many places with a beach of any kind. Lido San Domenico is a small, but quiet place to relax.

Kids play in the water. Parents take a nap. A nice place to visit, despite the fact you have to pay entrance (18 EURO for 2 adults + a kid).

Make sure you have Swiss francs (instead of EURO).
