San Felice del Benaco, Pearl of Lake Garda
The lakes are increasingly competing with the sea: alongside the famous destinations or made famous by VIP villas like George Clooney, the appeal of niche beaches is on the rise. The list is long, and choosing is not easy. We were tried by Lombardia Quotidiano, the online news section of the Regional Council.
On Lake 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 Salò shores, with dog friendly spaces, is that they are open access and overlook 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 clear 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 lake. Unique glimpses can be admired from the Natural Park of the Rocca and from the most famous beach, the Romantica.
The Garda list closes in Sirmione, “where probably the most beautiful beaches of the whole Garda are: the Lido delle Bionde and the Jamaica, located on the tip of the peninsula, suggestive and accessible only if the level of the lake is low ».
