We were excited to be a guest blogger for Simple Family Travel. We met Kristin, at Simple Family Travel, through Instagram. Don’t you love Instagram for that? We have been able to connect with other families who share our love for travel.
Simple Family Travel asked us to write a guest post on our favorite swimming pool in Switzerland. Below is our guest post where we share one of our favorite places to swim in Switzerland.
Lido di Locarno
One of our favorite places to swim as a family is the Lido di Locarno. The Lido is absolutely stunning and set right on Lake Maggiore. Not only is the location ideal, the lido has so much to offer: pools, the lake, waterslides, restaurants, giant inflatable place structures, beach front access, a gym, a spa, and so much more.
They offer chairs and umbrellas for rent but during the busy season most are rented before noon. There are a few big trees throughout the lido that offer an ample amount of shade.
The Lido Locarno is open daily from 8.30am till 9pm.
Prices vary depending on what you do:
Adults start from 13 CHF and children (aged 4-15) start from 7 CHF. They offer a family pass for 2 Adults and 2 Kids starting at 37 CHF. If you add on the waterslides the prices increase.
There are many options for parking around the Lido, which makes it quite convenient. If taking public transportation, the number 2 bus from the Locarno main train station will have you at the Lido in 13 minutes.
The location is amazing. Honesty, every visitor we take to the lido is in awe when walking in. The views are stunning on Lake Maggiore. There is fun for all age levels—from a baby pool to water-slides, beach volleyball to a lap pool. When we visit we stay all day long. The kids come home happy and exhausted. Perfect win.
