Lido Brissago seaside resort
lido, water slide, diving tower into the lake
A beautiful seaside resort for the whole family
If you are looking for a change of pace, we recommend the Lido Brissago swimming pool. It is just over 5 minutes drive from Lakeview Cannobio, on the Swiss side of the lake in the village of Brissago, the last Swiss town before the border with Italy.
Recently the old Lido Brissago swimming pool has been retreaded and this renewal has really done it good. Modern architecture now nestles into old quarry stone walls of the terraced site. Several different sunbathing areas are distributed on the different levels, they are first class maintained and all offer a great view of the lake and the opposite shore of Lake Maggiore. Even in summer, when the crowds are heavy, the visitors are spread out so that you never feel cramped at Lido Brissago.
From the entrance a path leads down to the first level, there you will find a very nice new children’s wading pool. This large children’s area is very attractive for toddlers and parents can always keep an eye on their little ones while splashing around.
One level below is the restaurant of the Lido Brissago. With partly sunny, partly shady seating, everyone will find their favorite. The food is really good for a pool restaurant and the portions are large. The prices are typical for Switzerland not cheap, but compared to many other beach resorts on the Swiss side of Lake Maggiore quite acceptable.
Another level down you will find a small, modern pool and the extremely cool diving tower: depending on the height above sea level, you can jump from about 5m, 3m or 1m into Lake Maggiore and return very comfortably on wide stairs to the diving platform. You can also rent various water equipment, SUP, pedal boats at Lido Brissago. The access to the lake is wide and sandy to stony, but very pleasant. Several lifeguards monitor the entire facility, so you can definitely feel safe.
The water slide is certainly a real highlight: although the Lido Brissago offers only one slide and also rather of a simpler type (in the Lido Locarno, however, there are 4), this slide is simply fun. The water slide is also surprisingly fast and fun. Over several hills you race down from the entrance almost to the level of Lake Maggiore. Past trees and leaves that surround the slide and with a magnificent view of Lake Maggiore. Water slide with lakeview you might say.
The whole area of the lake resort in Brissago is very green, very well kept and pleasantly natural. Perfect for the whole family because there really is something for everyone: water slide, diving tower, toddler pool, large pool and of course the beautiful lake. The fact that there is a greatly discounted family admission rounds out this wonderful family outing. Parking is available directly at the pool or across the street, don’t forget your change!
