Small lanes and a long seafront promenade with numerous restaurants and bars characterize the lively tourist resort of Garda. Just a short drive from Garda, in the direction of Costermano, one gets to the golf course Cà Degli Ulivi, with spectacular views over the lake.
Nearby the promontory Punta San Vigilio stretches out into the lake, for a lot of people the most beautiful spot on Lake Garda, at least before and after the season. Punta San Vigilio as well as the neighbouring hamlets of Castei, Giare, and Scaveaghe form part of Garda, and in these areas one can find very pretty and quiet residential areas.
Garda is easily accessible either via the Gardesana orientale road or via Affi and Costermano. Affi is merely 11 km away from Garda. There are several doctors in Garda so medical care is provided, the nearest hospital is the private clinic in Peschiera, 19 km away from Garda.
