Water sports on Lake Garda
Dive into the fun
Windsurfing, sailing, and kitesurfing are some of the most popular water sports on Lake Garda. Thanks to the strong winds in the lake’s northern part, Lake Garda offers excellent conditions to learn these disciplines or to improve your technique. Various schools and specialised centres offer courses for beginners and experts as well as the possibility of renting the necessary equipment.
Windsurfing on Lake Garda
Only 15 kilometres from Limone sul Garda and EALA lies Torbole, the windsurfing centre on Lake Garda par excellence. Here you will find free beaches equipped with deckchairs and sunshades, windsurfing schools with equipment hire, and the Circolo Surf Torbole, founded in 1979.
Hop on the boat
Various places around Lake Garda feature centres for the rental of sailing boats. You can either use the services of a skipper, who will accompany you on a half-day or one-day sailing trip, or you can rent the boat on your own. The numerous sailing schools on Lake Garda offer different courses for adults and children. There are also various motor boats for hire with or without a licence in the specialised centres.
Kitesurfing on Lake Garda
This sport was born in the late 90s as an alternative to surfing and uses the force of the wind with the help of a special kite. Thanks to the regular winds in the northern part of the lake, this sport has also spread to Lake Garda. Kitesurfing is neither difficult nor dangerous. If you want to learn kitesurfing, it is a good idea to rely on the qualified instructors of one of the schools on Lake Garda.
