Manerba del Garda is certainly one of the towns on Lake Garda that offers its visitors the greatest opportunity to relax on the beach.
Yes, because right here there are eleven kilometers, added together, of beaches, perhaps the most beautiful on the entire Garda. I don’t live in Manerba but it is one of the places I visit most during the year and especially in the summer for the mix of activities it has to offer.
In addition to the possibility of making one of the most beautiful excursions in this area, I have often found myself at Pisenze beach doing Sup, or at Romantica for an afternoon of relaxation. But enough talk, here are the beaches. Attention: they are not in order of preference because it depends on what you are looking for, whether you are a family with children or a couple and many other variables that only you can know.
The La Romantica beach in Manerba is definitely the most famous and “busy” during the summer period. It is a beach, the largest in the area, very long by lake standards and above all it is very well served with catering services. There are several parking lots, for a fee, right nearby.
Certainly one of the most beautiful beaches on the lake if you talk about its waters, in this small natural corner you will find few catering and bar services but there is one of the most popular Sup and WindSurf schools of the entire Benaco. Frequented mainly by young people, reachable with paid parking.
Another of the most popular beaches in the area and certainly also that of Porto Torchio, it connects with La Romantica and is also the main point to take the taxi boat to the island of San Biagio (or also called the Conigli). There is the possibility to rent sun loungers and umbrellas as well as being served by bars and other catering services. In this case too, nearby parking is paid.
The Dusano beach is located on the south side of Manerba and is nestled in nature, its waters are crystal clear and it is certainly one of the most beautiful free beaches in the area. Also in this case you can find catering services near the port.
Spiaggia della Rocca
Honestly, I have never had the pleasure of visiting it so I talk about it mostly by hearsay. This beach is dedicated to gays and naturists and is nestled among rocks and stones.
This is one of the most famous beaches in the area thanks to its fine sand that recalls the Caribbean (hence its name). It is divided into free beach and equipped beach, as well as being served by the homonymous local that is located nearby offering aperitifs and turning into a real disco until 2 am on weekends.
Very particular beach and difficult to reach, it is located right under the homonymous Sasso point that overlooks the lake after passing by the Rocca di Manerba.
Beach that welcomes owners and their four-legged friends, it is located in Punta di Rio and is fully equipped for all sizes and breeds. On this beach you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas and it also offers bowls for water and bags for collecting needs.
