Best towns to stay at at Lake Garda?

My family of five is staying two nights at Lake Garda in July but I'm scrambling to book something, as we've just decided this week.

I'd appreciate help deciding on which village to stay in. The mountains on the north shore (Riva del Garda) are stunning, the views on the eastern shore (Malcesine) are beautiful, and the charm of Limone and Salo can't be ignored, along with Sirmoine. But I'm not sure where we should head for the best combo of charm, views and good beaches. Any thoughts?

I'd like to be within 10-15 minutes of a nice beach area, whether by car or ferry or walking. Thanks!

Most of the shoreline looked rocky/pebbly, but there's a sandy-ish beach at Lazise. Rather than a beach, I'd probably be more interested in a nice pool with a lake view.

But for only two nights, I'd pick Malcesine for the cable car to the top of Mt. Baldo and the castle in the town.
