Enjoy the sun and swim in Desenzano's Lake Garda

There are mainly two places to go to and both in walking distance. They are really three but the latter two I will talk about are so close together that it is as such one place.

1) Desenzano beach

The first one is at the west end of Desenzano's central area. You see it from the Venatian bridge by the old harbour, Porto Vecchio. There is a restaurant there and kiosk. Very nice and central, but maybe too central for some people, you are virtually down town. On the way there, 100 meters, is a boat rent (non motor, you use your feet to pedle along). They also have row boats which I rent frequently instead of going to the gym. A good workout for the biceps and back muscles;)

2a) Rivoltella beach

The latter one is at the east end of Desenzano, where Rivoltella begins. Rivoltella is a part of Desenzano but they were two adjoining small towns once. It is now a part of Desenzano. It is about 15-20 minute walk to it but it is well worth the walk. Much spacier and open. 

At the west end of this beach is the Spaggia D'oro with 2 bars, restaurant, boat rent (non motor, you use your feet to pedle along) and a wolleyball field (grass).  Often some happenings there as well in the evening hours. 

Attn. I took these pictures early on a Saturday morning, it is usually much more people there, espesially at weekends.

2b) Porto di Rivoltella

At the east end of this beach, which is connected by a thin 100metre long beachline is the other part. It's called Porto di Rivoltella, or Rivoltella's Port. It is a smaller one but with a bar/light restaurant and walleyball field (sand). Above it is the Villa Brunati which is a beautiful building and has newly been renovated as a Library. The pictures and the video are shot from its terrace.
