It is a place of great beauty in all seasons.

How to get to Punta Gro.

The beach/promenade is free and can be reached on foot from the center of Sirmione (in just over an hour’s walk) or by car (parking in the neighboring streets).

What to do and visit in Punta Grò.

A day at the beach with a walk along the lake.

The beach is free, equipped with showers and a volleyball court; the toilets for a fee (cost 0.50 euros) are also usable for those who use a wheelchair. Dogs are allowed on the beach, but it is not possible to camp or light fires.

You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Punta Grò Bistrot Cafè, a very nice kiosk bar; there are also sunbeds available for hire without the need to book.

Visit the Fisherman’s House (Casa del Pescatore).

In the splendid setting of Punta Grò there is the Casa del Pescatore: a place to meet and explore the culture of water, as well as an important space for reflection and the history of the life of fishermen of the past.
The buildings that make up the site, once used for fishing-related activities, have been restored and rearranged with the creation of two paths: an external path , made up of five interactive totems, where the voice of a fisherman tells anecdotes about the place and on the daily life of the past, and an internal path, through the net warehouse and the house itself, where it is possible to explore and discover the secrets of the world of fishing, immersing the visitor in an evocative tale between stories and settings of the past.

The Fisherman’s House is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 9.00 to 13.00 – free admission. For more info click here.

House murals.

Walking along the lakefront towards Sirmione, you will find this particular ruined house which in the summer of 2021 saw a series of street artists bring it to life by coloring it with various murals. A nice place to take pictures and portraits with very special backgrounds!

Sometimes it takes very little to relax and have fun: the splendid nature that Lake Garda gives us!
See you next time dear Outdoors!

According to the art of onomancy, the meaning of my name is described as follows: "it lives in the woods, sylvan and wild". Sometimes fate knows the way before you, and forges you with the most akin experiences. I live in the heart of Lake Garda in Castelletto di Brenzone. Passionate about trekking, photography and writing, which I combine in small adventures. If you are looking for me, you will find me in the forest overlooking the lake... with my Roberto and Gea.
