Things to do around Lake Maggiore in one day: discover all the stones beach

DAY 2 of 2 / Chapter 2 of 4 – Italy
Lake Maggiore (Leggiuno) Lake Maggiore (Punta Granelli) – 11 km

As we make our way around the lake, we pass through several different villages. But we want to be in contact with nature, so we dismiss them in favour of the little coves and shingle beaches.

180 million years ago, this was a tropical sea. The waters receded and the land rose, the tectonic plates moved and mountains were formed, and ice ages came one after another.

Then a large glacier created a u-shaped valley, a continuation of the Ticino Valley, which is in front of us. Some geologists believe that the erosive action of the glacier formed the basin of Lake Maggiore.

Lake Maggiore offers its visitors history, art, nature, and sport – particularly sailing.

Lake Maggiore is heaven for sailing lovers. It catches cold northerly breezes early in the morning (the tramontana), southerly winds after 10am (the inverna), and the mergozzoblows in from the west. And for the most fearless sailors there’s the maggiora; the fierce, blustery wind that shipwrecked Alberto Besozzi.

We take off our t-shirts and enjoy holding them up like sails and letting the wind fill them with air.
