Sea Destinations | 2013 Edition


Also known as Apulia, this region is considered to be the heel of Italy’s boot as it is in the southern part. Although Apulia is not a well-known tourist drawer among the lovely Italian attractions, it is now a rising star due to various charms such as olive groves and orchards, baroque towns, whitewashed trullo houses, excellent cuisine, sunny weather, and the inviting blue sea and beaches. Start your sea holiday by taking a trip to the different beaches and coves found around the Otranto area. On a clear day, you can enjoy the scenic view across Albania while lounging under the sun. There’s also a shallower beach in Pescoluse ideal for travelling families who have children. When you want more adventure, you can get to Tremiti Islands that has great diving sites and stunning sea caves for exploring. Indeed, your sea holiday is definitely worth it when you choose to spend it on Apulia.

Emilia-Romagna is famous for its Parma ham and Parmesan cheese, along with its pleasant art cities. It is located in the upper eastern part of Italy’s boot and because it reaches from the Adriatic coast across to the country’s western shore, it has plenty of beaches that attract tourists who want to spend a great sea holiday. Aside from the wonderful landmarks in Bologna, the region’s capital, visitors will also get to enjoy the sandy beaches of Emilia-Romagna coastline most notably, the Riviera Romagnola which are well-known tourist destinations. It has many modern resorts such as Cesenatico, Milano Marittima and Cattolica. Among the three, Rimini seems to be most favoured by foreign tourists and is trying to get off a tacky reputation as a style renaissance. In addition to the long beaches, there’s also a historic centre you can visit, the Roman Arch of Augustus and the Renaissance Tempio Malatestiano. These resorts have plenty to offer so that you will get to choose the best amenities and features that will suit your needs.

LIGURIA 26

Sea Destinations | 2013 Edition


The beaches of destinations like Varazze, Sanremo, Santa Margherita Ligure, Alassio and Laigueglia are some of the most popular among tourists of northern Italy, who choose them as their favourite destination for summer holiday breaks especially from Piedmont and Lombardy. Liguria can offer natural landscapes of breathtaking beauty thanks to the long sandy and perfectly equipped beaches of the Riviera di Ponente (West side of the region) and the rugged coastline and cliffs characterizing the Riviera di Levante (East side of the region). An ideal starting point for a tour of Liguria is undoubtedly Genoa, home of the famous singer-songwriter Fabrizio de Andrè. With its narrow and winding streets Genoa is the capital of a region full of fascinating contrasts, both in the landscape and in culture. Pearl of the Ligurian coast are undoubtedly the Cinque Terre, with their crystal clear sea and perfect trails for hikers as well as landscapes so special to be appreciated throughout all Europe.

SARDINIA 40

Sea Destinations | 2013 Edition


What’s there in Sardinia for the well-travelled tourist? Aside from the classic and elegant Italian landmarks, attractions and activities, there are also a plethora of sea and beach adventures that they can indulge in. As a large Mediterranean island located in the west of Italy, it does not only have scenic mountains but also turquoise waters that draws in tourists by the thousands every year. So enticing are the beaches around Sardinia’s shores that even Italian families, whole districts of them are said to camp with their neighbours to certain Sardinian beaches every August. For the first time traveller however, it is ideal to go directly to Coasta Smeralda or the “emerald coast” to experience a lovely, true Sardinian holiday and yet a very relaxing one at the same time. In summer, most celebrity magazines take photo shoots of popular actors, models and TV personalities with the superb Sardinian blue waters as the backdrop. For those who favour more privacy however, there are also stretches of Sardinian coast that are still unspoiled.

Sea Destinations | 2013 Edition


Among the world’s most favoured regions when it comes to beaches is Sicily. There are sandy beaches to the east of Castellammare and luxurious accommodations with seaside hotels. The tourist has a wide range of sea holidays to choose from and budget is only the limit on where he likes to indulge. More scenic coves are to be found in the steep coastline towards the Zingaro nature reserve. For those who like to navigate Sicily’s blue seas, visitors can rent a boat for excursions but these services don’t regularly run on the summer months. There a small beach at Guidaloca which is ideal for families as it is equipped with children’s pool and sunbeds. For active beach bums who like to spice their holiday with thrilling activities, you may pick the rocky coves at Scopello and the areas around the Zingaro nature reserves. When hungry, you can dine in one of the local fish restaurants and be treated with fresh seafood and dishes. And if you are driving, don’t miss the wonderful views Sicily is known for including the belvedere above Castellammare for amazing scenes.

Sea Destinations | 2013 Edition


Although not so much associated with sea and beach attractions due to its many country beauties, Tuscany does have around 250 miles of interesting coastline that entice beach lovers. In addition, its deckchair-to-deckchair beach scene especially found in Versilia resorts may not be appealing for tourists, but there are still wonderful exceptions that are worth travelling for. The southern Tuscan region of coastal Maremma provides beach bums a great mix of unspoiled scenery, uncrowded beaches, and relaxing places to eat and drink. There’s also the small-scale resort of Castiglione della Pescaia which provides the right balance between modesty and chicness. If you want to be extremely private, you may head to Marina di Alberese, in the Monti dell’Uccellina nature reserve since it is one of the emptiest coasts in Tuscany. On the other hand, there’s the blue-green sea paradise as Tuscany’s true, cleanest islands such as Pianosa, Giglio and Elba, awaits all of you out there who likes to mix and mingle.
