The most beautiful dog beaches in Italy

Dog beaches on Lake Garda

The largest Italian lake is also a favorite destination among German tourists. The advantage over the Italian coast is the quieter water and of course the shorter access. In summer, there is hardly any rain on Lake Garda, the sun is shining and the water invites you to bathe with pleasant temperatures. If you want to enjoy this together with your dog, you have several options on Lake Garda:

Toscolano Maderno

In the province of Brescia, on the western shore of Lake Garda, there is the municipality of Toscolano Maderno. Here dog owners will find a beach section of 700 meters in length, which was specially set up for four-legged Italian tourists. Parasols, a kiosk and even a children's playground are provided for your convenience. Also on a lifeguard must not be waived here. It is also great that this dog beach is open around the clock and is accessible free of charge. Only between eight o'clock in the morning and seven o'clock in the evening, there is a line obligation.


Only a short distance from Toscolano Maderno you will find another dog beach in the 11,000-year-old town of Salò. 500 square meters of space offer dogs and their owners enough space for beach games and cooling in Lake Garda. There are benches and a special water hole for the animals. Also on the dog beach of Salò there is no entrance fee. The beach is always open. It is also important here that the dogs always have to be kept on a leash.
