One of the least crowded beaches in Verona, Al Corno is the perfect stop for anyone looking for the perfect beach day with incredible views. You will have no problem finding your spot to sunbathe on this beach. The shoreline is quite wide, making it a great stop for that private beach experience.

The water of Lake Garda is perfect for swimming, though the beach is very pebbly so it is advised to bring swimming shoes. Al Corno is similar to the other beaches along Lake Garda’s coast but is less known and therefore much quieter.

There are sunbeds and umbrellas available for you to use but make sure to bring your own snacks and drinks as there aren’t any stalls along the beach.
