Attraction details
Owner description: Lido Locarno is a unique oasis for recreation, sport and well-being.Its hot spring, swimming pool, water slides and play pools make it the best equipped stateof-the-art aquatic park in Ticino. Indoor and outdoor pools are open throughout the year and are located on one of the most beautiful beaches of Lake Maggiore, surrounded by a dramatic alpine scenery on one side and the magnificent lake on the other. Visitors can swim, relax and have fun in the pool and lose themselves in the lake's tranquility.

“Just heaven”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

A fabulous place. Reasonable cost entry (given the fabulousness of the facility.) Great variety of pools, water features and kids' pool options. Plus a lakeside beach, lawn with loungers, play area, a cafe and, most importantly, a view to die for. You can spend all day here, then get the public bus to Ascona for the incandescent sunset (or even better, get the early evening ferry circuit from Ascona, which gives 5 different sunsets with all the mountain ranges it goes past.) We are itchy to get back just to repeat this perfect experience. (Just to add, river swimming of course is a must in this area too. Cool, green, icy water, hot sun, mountains all around..)

“Great Water Equipment in Locarno”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The Lido di Locarno, one of Ticino’s most modern bathing facilities and water worlds, is open all year round in any weather. It is equipped with numerous indoor and outdoor pools, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a thermal pool, a children’s pool and four water slides.

The complex is huge and nice. I really recommend this new place

“Nice pools and slides”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

I do find this place a bit pricy, but you can't get away from it in the summer. Though the Macha river is a nice, free alternative, if you have time to go there. This place does get quite crowded, but there is a lot to do: lake, pools, slides, taning on the beach. Unfortunately the slides do cost extra.

“Pool with lake and mountainview”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

One of the greatest swimmingpool centres i have visited, even if it is in my hometown :)
Great for families with kids.
Only disadvantage: you need to chose the right time to visit: on weekends in the summer it can be quite crowded.
I recommend a visit to the new annexed, much more quiet spa for a more relaxing saltwater pool experience with lake and mountain view.

“A day of total relaxation”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

A very nice swimming pool and attractions green and clean area by the lakeshore of Lago Maggiore. Being right by the border with Switzerland, the entrance fee can be paid in Euros, Swiss Francs or Credit Card. About 35 euros per day, per family. Good clean water, and specially the water slides are fun. A bit crowded with small children running everywhere, but there are possibilities for relaxation. The food was a bit pricy and few selections, but most of the people brought their own picnic food.
