Zurich Beaches
January 17, 2005 9:01 AM   Subscribe

I am going to a wedding in Zurich in May, and I would like to go to the beach to relax for a week before the wedding. Where are some good beach vacation locations where I can vacation cheaply, and still travel to Zurich for the wedding.

You'd better route this query to the Swiss navy.

Croatia's coastal areas have been gaining a reputation as a cheap alternative to the French Riviera, and they're not far by plane from Zurich. You should check to see if there's a budget airline link between the two.

A lot of the small towns along the Italian Riviera are nice and not too expensive.

I visited Lugano when I went to zurich. it's a 2 hour train ride. Beautiful place on the italian/swiss border. I'll find some info, and post it later.

It's not cheap, but I second Lugano. And Locarno, and Maggiore, and really any of the lakeside places in Ticino and Northern Italy. It's beautiful and mellow.

Italian beaches are your best bet from Zurich. It will be uncrowded at that time of year, and you can probably get to the coast around Genoa in a few hours on the train.
