The coast in Veneto
Beach holidays in Veneto
Hardly any other region in Italy can compete with such long and beautiful sandy beaches such as those in Veneto. Many miles long and up to 300-metre-wide sandy beaches stretch from Caorle over Bibione and Jesolo to Marina di Venezia, and even the south of Venice is dominated by sandy beaches along the coast. The pine forest behind the beaches has been replaced in many places by a dense wall of hotels, holiday villages and campsites. But you can still find many natural, quiet spots and beautiful natural parks along coasts and in the Venetian lagoons.

Veneto: miles of sandy beaches in a swimmers’ paradise
The long sandy beaches that extend along the entire coast of Veneto seem to be almost endless. The beaches are wide – up to 300 metres – and mostly stay quite shallow as they stretch out to sea – ideal conditions for relaxing and swimming. Children in particular will find perfect conditions for building a sand castle and paddling in the shallow water. One swimming area after another and plenty of bars, pubs and restaurants invite you to linger. If you are looking for alternatives, you can enjoy a day out at one of the fun pools, amusement parks and spas all around. Sports fans can find numerous options along the coasts of the Veneto region, such as biking, swimming, running, tennis and, of course, all kinds of water sports.

Nature, culture and tourism on the Veneto coast
Mass tourism in the modern sense began in Veneto in the 1950s. Since then, not only countless hotels, holiday villages and camps have emerged, but also a strong tourism infrastructure has developed, which offers almost everything. Tourism is good for the country’s economy but has serious consequences for the environment. The dense pine forests had to make room for hotels, campsites and resorts, and Veneto’s heavy industry is located right by the entrance to the lagoon of Venice – a ticking time bomb for the entire region. Nevertheless, some national parks and pristine coastal lagoons were able to preserve their original strictly protected fauna and flora until today. The beautiful Po Delta in the south of Veneto is certainly worth a trip in this respect.
