The most famous bathing / swimming spot in Verzasca is next to the famous bridge Ponte dei Salti. The current is very slow here (the underwater cave has the depth of 10m) although you should always be very careful when entering the river. The turquoise water is always cold and refreshing.
A great spot for bathing, most of the time the river is very quiet here and there's a nice tiny sandy beach. This is not a popular place so it's always very quiet, also in high season. You can get there from the main street by crossing the bridge 200m after Osteria Motta (between Lavertezzo and Brione) or from the hiking path on the other side of the river.
