San Felice «pearl» of Lake Garda
The lakes are more and more competition to the sea: next to the famous destinations or made famous by the villas of VIPs like George Clooney, the appeal of the niche beaches is on the rise. The list is long, and choosing is not easy. Lombardia Quotidiano, the online news section of the Regional Council, has tried.
On the Garda the most famous is Padenghe, with pebble beaches equipped with kiosks, bars, toilets and showers. Desenzano does not offer the most beautiful beach, but for experts it is the easiest to reach. The value of the beaches of Salò, with dog-friendly spaces, is that they are open access and overlooking the gulf towards Portese-San Felice.
Just San Felice is considered the “pearl” of Garda: in the locality of Navenago there is an oasis where the water is limpid and blue like the sea. As well as Manerba: its more than 11 kilometers of coastline make it one of the most attractive tourist destinations along the lakefront. Unique views can be admired from the Rocca Natural Park and from the most famous beach, the Romantica.
The Garda list closes in Sirmione, “where probably the most beautiful beaches of the Garda are located: the Lido delle Bionde and Jamaica, located at the tip of the peninsula, suggestive and accessible only if the level of the lake is low”.
