Dog-friendly beaches in Sirmione
Some of Sirmione’s beaches allow dogs, so they can spend the day on the shoreline with their owners and enjoy swimming in the lake: these include the Spiaggia delle Muse near the Scaligero Castle, Punta Grò in Lugana and Brema beach in Colombare.
Dogs are also allowed on Lugana beach, but not in the water.
Legally in Italy you can take your dog with you to the beach, but with a leash and muzzle, any excrement must be collected and you should keep your pet with you at all times under your beach umbrella.
