Tuscany is a paradise for beach lovers of all kinds!
The coastal areas not only offer a variety of beautiful beaches, but are also often flanked by many of the region's most enchanting towns. From historic gems with long sandy beaches to hidden rocky coves, you are sure to find a beach location that is perfect for your summer adventure.
Tuscany not only offers countless highlights on the mainland. A couple of beautiful islands also belong to this region. These are often forgotten when talking about Tuscany.
The seven islands of the Tuscan Archipelago are: the famous Isola D 'Elba, Isola del Giglio, Pianosa, Capraia, Isola di Giannutri, Isola di Gorgona and Isola di Montecristo.
The beaches of Tuscany are usually divided into individual sections, so-called "Bagni". These Bagni are beach baths that are subject to a fee and offer the following services: deck chairs with parasols, showers and changing rooms, cafes and restaurants as well as sports facilities. But there are also many free beaches between the "bagnis".
Forte dei Marmi is one of the most popular holiday resorts on the Tuscan coast and is at the same time the flagship of the Versilia region with well-equipped, extensive beaches, with spectacular views of the Apuan Alps, elegant beach resorts and a night life that focuses on the beautiful beach promenade. For a long time, this place has been particularly popular with aristocrats and industrialists and is still an important reference point for the international jet set.
Lido di Camaiore is located between Marina di Pietrasanta and Viareggio; There are many shops, cafés and restaurants on the beach promenade.
