Dip a toe in, enjoy a cocktail, or take a pedalo out on the water – bathing and swimming in Switzerland.

Beach towel spread in the shade of a linden tree, ice-cream in hand, and your gaze drinking in the expanse of water in front of you. Welcome to one of Switzerland's many local recreation areas, where you'll find great-value accommodation close to lakes and rivers. They're perfect for a quick weekend getaway or a relaxing vacation with family or friends. Many places offer stand-up paddleboards and pedalos for rent, for even more fun on the water.

Some hosts also offer their guests special experiences on or by the water. A dinner and a moonlight cruise, for example, hiking in combination with yoga, or a moonlight stroll to the waterfall. They're experiences that will be long remembered, and make a wonderful anniversary surprise, or gift idea for your lovely in-laws.
