The large lake of Monticolo is ideal for romantic hours at the lakeside, swimming or relaxing, but it is too small for boats or surfboards. For this purpose there is the nearby Lake Caldaro, where every afternoon the Ora wind blows, coming from the southern Lake Garda and providing ideal conditions for surfers and sailors.
Insiders know that the period with most wind is spring (up to 6 Beaufort). If you can, choose the weekdays to go surfing or sailing, best with neoprene suits, as the water is still rather cool. By the way, at the lakeside, there is a surfing school, located in the lido and at the restaurant “Gretl am See”. As you notice, also surfing and sailing is possible in the surroundings of Appiano, after a 10-minutes’ car drive you are on site.
