Malcesine is one of the best spots on Garda Lake to windsurf with the Peler, the thermal wind blowing from the night (or dawn) until about mid-morning, and that reaches truly remarkable intensity. 

Windsurf spot reviews: Malcesine (Garda Lake)

To reach the spot (see map below), you need to drive along the eastern Gardesana. From North, Malcesine can be reached in a quarter of an hour drive from Torbole (one of the villages at the top of the lake). From South, Malcesine is approximately one hour drive from Peschiera del Garda. There are several parking and other exit points to start the session. You can park at the public pay parking, just north of the Hotel Europe (see map below). Alternatively, you can park and get into water at the Lido Paina (a little further south), where, however, we have not been yet.




Early in the morning the first parking lot soon fills up (campers are already there by night). At 7 it is already almost all complete, at least in summer (July-August), during weeke ends. At other times, probably the situation is better.




You can assemble your equipment in the dirt yard parking (you dirty yorself a bit of fine white soil), or in the lawn by the lake. You can enter into the water from the beach just north of the parking lot (and just south of the small dock, near the spot). Or, you can enter into the water from the beach south of the parking lot, and the landing point of the ferry that makes the service line and that also carries cars (do note that when it comes, it is a big one!). In the middle of the two beaches you have a cliff (in some points, good to enter and exit from the water, although a little uncomfortable), and the concrete platform of docking (to avoid).
