  • Impressive construction! Nice to see the people bungee jump (only on weekends and mid week during peak season).
  • Just a fantastic view, an absolute must see!
  • I dreamed of this jump for so long, I'm soooo happy to have made it !!! It was AMAZING scary but truly A M A Z I N G !!!! Perfect place, and great team !!
  • Wanna jump in? Go in the summer (and bring the money)... Or you can go during the winter like I did and you'll be all alone. An excellent panoramic spot.
  • Gorgeous. This was the scene of James Bond, Goldeneye.

Where to stay in Locarno

Overlooking the waterfront of Lake Maggiore, picturesque Locarno has plenty to offer in terms of accommodations. A collection of charming, mid-market, family-run guesthouses and bed and breakfasts dot the shoreline, where you can enjoy a cozy stay in this vacation spot. On the east side of the cape stretches a long promenade, while the west side features a beach and public pool; immediate access to these depends on the position of your lodging. A little further inland you'll find a couple of hostels, a good option for budget-minded travelers willing to compromise on view.
