Beaches

Whether you fancy sunbathing on the grass with the fresh lake breeze, or sitting on a pebble beach before taking a swim in Lake Iseo itself, you will be spoilt for choice.

The beaches of Lake Iseo are generally made of rocks or gravel. The water is clear and clean and suitable for swimming. Due to the stones, we suggest to wear aqua shoes when you enter the water through the beaches.

The waters of Lake Iseo are checked in 46 different places from ASL technicians of Public Health, which tests for the presence of pollutants, microbes and bacteria. In 2019 the test gave excellent results for the water.

Please note that not all the beaches are suitable for swimming. Pay attention if you see the sign “Divieto di balneazione“, it means swim is not allowed there. Also, a few things to keep in mind:

  • Swimming in the lake is a bit different from swimming in the sea, because floating requires more effort
  • Diving when you are very hot can be dangerous, as the body must get used to the cold water of the lake
  • The lake can have dangerous currents and if you are not an expert swimmer it is better to avoid diving or being in deep water
