A stone’s throw from the historic centre of Garda, strolling along the lakeside promenade leading to Bardolino, you will find La Cavalla beach, the most popular and popular beach in the area.

It is a pebble beach that can boast of overlooking crystal-clear waters: access is free, which makes it perfect for a short relaxing break during a walk, but there is also the possibility of renting beach umbrellas and sunbeds.

Perfect for families, there are also refreshment facilities and a convenient pay car park in the vicinity of La Cavalla Beach.

5- Jamaica Beach – Sirmione

Let us now move on to the Brescian shore of Lake Garda, to the enchanting Sirmione, dealing with the most unusual beach on this list, Jamaica Beach: its name is due to the almost tropical atmosphere generated by the landscape.

It is located just below the famous Grotte di Catullo, and there you will find neither sand nor pebbles, but large, smooth white slabs of rock eroded over time by water and wind. In order to avoid slipping, we strongly recommend rock shoes, with which you can enjoy this little paradise without any worries.

The beach also has an excellent bar, sunbed rental and free shower service.

6- Pisenze Beach – Manerba del Garda

In Manerba del Garda, situated below the famous Rocca and overlooking the Island of San Biagio, Spiaggia Pisenze is one of the most picturesque and relaxing beaches around Lake Garda. The pebble beach is surrounded by lush, wild vegetation and the water is extremely clear.

Nearby you will find a bar and a restaurant, while we also recommend taking the opportunity to follow the path leading to the breathtaking viewpoint of the Rocca di Manerba.

7- Lido di Fasano – Gardone Riviera

This splendid pebble beach is the only one in the entire Garda area to be recognised with the ‘Blue Flag’ title, awarded for the cleanliness and clarity of its water. It is located just above Gardone Riviera, access is free and it also has a beautiful volleyball court. Bars, showers and toilets are also available.

8- Cola Beach – Limone sul Garda

You can find this lovely pebbly beach on the lakeside promenade of Limone sul Garda, very close to the old town centre. Access to Spiaggia Cola is free, with the possibility of renting beach umbrellas and sunbeds for those who want to relax, as well as boats and pedal boats.

9- Spiaggia dei Pini – Riva del Garda

We finally move on to the northern shore of Lake Garda, the one in Trentino. Spiaggia dei Pini (also known as ‘Purfina’) is one of the most famous and popular beaches in Riva del Garda.

Frequented mainly by young people, it is the ideal destination for surfing enthusiasts, who come here in large numbers every year. The pebble beach typical of Garda’s shores is flanked by a relaxing green area with lush trees and plants. Here you will also find toilets, showers, a bar and sunshade and sunbed rental.

10- Lizard Beach – Torbole

We conclude with the Lizard Beach in Torbole, popular with surfers. This free beach is characterised by the presence of a high limestone cliff falling sheer to the lake, which is why it is frequented by climbing enthusiasts.

The secluded position of the shoreline between the lake water and the high cliff face creates a very intimate and atmospheric atmosphere.
