Best place near thalwil to swim in the lake ?

Can anybody recommend a good place to go swimming in lake Zurich in the Thalwil area, if possible not too crowded ( I realise that may be a bit difficult considering how good the weather is right now ) with a nice grassy area?

The badis at Horgan, Thalwil and Rüchlikon are good but if it's non crowded you want catch the s 8 to Au. Walk around the peninsula to your left and past the castle to the barbq area, there is grassed area there and a little beach. It should be far less crowded than the badis.

If you take a bike there is a nice place along the lake between Au and Horgan; it's a bit of a trek by foot and car parking is non existent.

Horgen is also nice as it has a kiddie pool which is great for the little kids if you have them and a slide into the lake for the bigger kids. The concession is also pretty decent. It's nice and clean and usually not overly crowded except on the hottest days. Plenty of grassy area, too.
