In addition to being a unique opportunity to admire Venice and its beauties, including places of art, canals and islands that have made it famous throughout the world, a trip to the Veneto combines culture, relaxation and, why not, a break by the sea.
Along the Veneto coast, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, there is no shortage of seaside resorts where you can enjoy a vacation – or even just a refreshing weekend break – suitable for all tastes and guests of all ages. From the north, in the area of Bibione, proceeding south to the Lido di Venezia and passing through Caorle, Jesolo and Cavallino you will be spoiled for choice between free sandy beaches or equipped beaches, beaches for families and even beaches with access allowed to dogs.
A small tidbit to facilitate your choice: although geographically located some in the Veneto and some in the neighboring region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, in fact, the different locations are all within a short distance from each other. This will allow you to move easily from one to another if you are undecided on the destination of your vacation.
Starting from the north, Bibione is an unmissable destination for nature lovers. Surrounded to the east by the river Tagliamento and the Adriatic Sea, it boasts a lagoon rich in vegetation and beautiful views, dotted with small islands. Its coastline, then, is particularly loved for its accessibility, for its smoke-free beaches, perfect for families and dog-friendly beaches, such as the Spiaggia di Pluto. Last but not least, the beach of Bibione was awarded the Blue Flag, which certifies the cleanliness and bathing of the water and the coast. Unmissable then, a walk along the beach to the Lighthouse of Punta Tagliamento, between dunes and vegetation.
A little further down is Caorle, an ancient fishing village with origins far back in time that has been able to preserve intact some of the treasures of the past. Among these are the “Casoni“, characteristic dwellings made from marsh reeds, which dot the nearby Isola dei Pescatori. Not to be missed – in addition to a refreshing break along the 18 km of fine sandy beach entirely suitable for children, also awarded the Blue Flag – a visit to the historic center, full of colorful houses and narrow streets.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for a bit of worldliness and a lively destination in which to spend your vacations, Jesolo is the place for you. The beaches are wide and varied – it is right here that Bau Bau Beach is located, the first entirely dog-friendly beach on the Riviera -, but there are other opportunities for fun, such as the Caribe Bay water park, with slides and themed pools. The center of Jesolo, then, boasts one of the longest pedestrian areas in Europe where you can find stores, restaurants, bars and trendy places perfect for nightlife lovers.
Moving a little south towards Venice, we reach Cavallino – Treporti, a true paradise for caravan lovers and campers. Here, the more than 30 camping villages not far from the sea are spacious and surrounded by greenery. The entertainment services in some of them make them perfect for those traveling with the family. Along the lagoon and its canals, there are also 4 different bike routes for both expert cyclists and amateurs.
Of a different nature, but no less fascinating is the bathing proposal of the Lido di Venezia (Lido of Venice), the island separated from Venice strategically located between the lagoon and the open sea, connected to the city and the mainland only by ‘vaporetti’ or ferries. Particularly loved by the jet-set – in fact, it is here that the famous Venice Film Festival is held every year -, the Lido is home to luxury hotels, a golf course and charming clubs. Perfect for tourism not within reach of all budgets.
