Summers are filled with a temperate climate
and blessed with the cool breeze of the sea, enough to attract many
to build homes and gardens right by the beaches. Whether you’re
looking for the perfect beach or perhaps a way to cool down after
exploring ancient cities, the warm waters, eternal sunshine and sandy
stretches of Italy’s beaches are a must for all travellers.

Italy is a peninsula surrounded by the mountains
and the sea. The Adriatic east coast in the east, Tyrrhenian Sea
in the west, the Lake District in the north and the southern islands
of Sardinia and Sicily
all equally offer some of the most fantastic beaches in the world.
With over 5000 miles of coastlines, dry and hot summers and sunshine
most of the year, Italy is one of Europe’s favourite beach
Tourists will also find that the Italians take
their seaside holidays seriously.
Several environmental leagues have rated each and every one of these
beaches using a host of factors, like cleanliness of the shoreline,
absence of chemical wastes, environmental protection, and the quality
and quantity of services available.
Enjoy the refreshing energy from the sun as
colourful arrays of deck chairs and sun umbrellas mark the seashore.

The best beaches throughout Italy are enjoyed because they are restful,
good for naps and reading while enjoying a sumptuous lunch with wine
accompanied by laughter among friends or family.
