Cool off in a secluded bathing area


The emerald-green or turquoise water of Ticino's rivers finds its way through the eroded rocky landscape creating hidden bathing areas and numerous natural water pools and small beach areas with the very finest sand that characterize the whole territory. Places that invite you to refresh yourself after a walk or cycling tour for a natural recharge.

Plenty of activities


From family bathing to canyoning, from rowing to a gourmet cruise - you are spoilt for choice! Ticino is not touched by the sea, but there are huge waves of activities to be enjoyed at any time of year.

Have you packed your sun cream? And the water wings for your youngest son? The most important thing is to have fun, but always in complete safety. Especially where there is no lifeguard, it is important to be careful. Water is a force of nature, but if you give it the right respect, there is nothing to fear.
