150KM OF COASTS AND BEACHES,
A SINGLE BRAND FOR EACH AND EVERY NEED
Eight towns, ten beaches, one hundred fifty kilometers of coast, seven unique destinations and a single brand: Venice Sands. The project, the only one in Italy, was born thanks to the tourist promotion Consortia of the Coast of Veneto (Bibione, Caorle, Eraclea, Jesolo, Cavallino Treporti, Chioggia, Lido di Venezia), which gathered to provide their guests with the best that the unique 150 km of the coast of Veneto have to offer. A shared entity which represents the 35% of the tourist arrivals of all Veneto, the first region in Italy for number of tourists. Fairs, workshops, digital programs, and all the promotion process follow the same philosophy, under the single brand of Venice Sands. Within this brand, each area can express its own characteristics and features, providing suggestions and information to potential guests on the kind of vacation that suits best to them and their families. A network in which the sea expresses itself in all its aspects and excellence—from history to sport, to gastronomy, and entertainment. Venice Sands is the only example of collaborative union among beach towns in Italy. Luigi Pasqualinotto, tourist businessman, is the president of the network of companies Venice Sands and his conception of the values and operational plans to be offered to guests is very clear: “We fulfill practically each and every need of our customers, granting the most wide range of offers in the national market, but not only. Within our unique offer, guests can evaluate, choose, and pick among the various opportunities those which please them most.” Fulfill practically each and every need is a challenging goal, which represents an attractive opportunity for tourists and visitors. Integration and collaboration among consortia must therefore be strong in order to share not only the advertising process but also the tourist reception. The Regione del Veneto, too, offers an essential support, since it strongly believes in the creation of synergies among companies and projects. “It is definitely a tight collaboration. The concept of single brand means precisely that the ten beaches of Venice Sands provide an offer so diversified and integrated that it can fit everyone’s taste—from entertainment to nature, from the beach to biking, form culture to cuisine, and shopping. All coordinated with transportation and logistics.”
BIBIONE: BLUE SEA AND GORGEOUS GREENERY
As well as being a vibrant and fully accessible seaside resort, with some of the highest visitor numbers in Italy, Bibione is home to an exceptional array of natural delights. Here, nature is loved and respected, starting on the sand: Bibione is home to the first smoke-free beach in Italy, so that everyone can breathe the pure sea air in an EMAS-registered spot that has been awarded a Blue Flag 28 times. Spellbinding cycling routes run alongside the shore among ever-changing scenery, stretching from the lagoon past pine woods and natural dunes to the mouth of the Tagliamento, the least anthropized Alpine river in Europe. Itineraries can also be followed through the organic agricultural land in the inland areas or the Valgrande fishing pools, which were created to preserve unique, invaluable ecosystems. Two boat link services lead to Lignano Sabbiadoro and Vallevecchia, where cyclists can carry on exploring the landscape of the Northern Adriatic.
On foot, by bike or by boat for couples, with family or friends: walking on Via dei Casoni (ancient buildings typical of local fishermen), is like entering a fairy tale, a suggestive journey back in time through a breathtaking natural environment a full immersion in nature.In the next months, the resort will focus on slow, sustainable tourism, complementary to the seaside offer, able to offer tourists a moderate pace experience, opposed to everyday life. This is, in fact, the type of tourism required today more than ever: days to be spent away from crowded places, in small realities and in contact with nature. The "Caorle Slow - Hike & Bike" project includes both pedestrian and bicycle routes, to discover the hinterland and the gastronomic excellence that characterize it, for a total of 300 km. Caorle Slow will therefore be an important tool for promoting the area, not only for the summer season to routes that can be traveled all year round.
ERACLEA MARE, The Green Pearl of the Adriatic
Eraclea Mare is a seaside resort located on the northern Adriatic coast and truly is the only one of its kind and is a precious jewel – so much so that it has earned itself the name “Green Pearl”. Eraclea Mare is different from neighbouring resorts in that, as well as offering magnificent sea and a large beach of fine sand, it features a vast, flourishing pine forest that directly connects to the beach. You can take refuge in the hottest hours of the day in the heat shelter, where you can either enjoy entertainment or relax, breathing in the fresh sea breeze and the scent of resin from the seaside pine trees.
Jesolo The City Beach
Jesolo is a seaside town located on the Adriatic coast in the province of Venice. It is well-known for its services, accommodation facilities, leisure opportunities, and nature. You’ll be enchanted by the seductive beauty of the natural landscape and all its colours and our rural hinterland will enchant you every time you cross it. Two initiatives make this possible: firstly, there’s the Jesolo Ambient Bike project, a guide to exploring over 500 km’s worth of cycle paths; secondly, there are twelve paths designed to integrate the tourist offer and give guests the opportunity to discover the municipal territory and its natural features while in contact with nature. You can download the information described above on www.visitjesolo.it and www.ambientbikejesolo.it. To get around the city, in addition to the bikes provided by the accommodation facilities, it’s also possible to use the Bike Sharing service. Practical and eco-friendly, it allows you to use the 120 orange public bicycles located at 19 stations free of charge. Created to promote the sustainable mobility Bike Sharing is the most appropriate solution to generating less traffic, fewer traffic jams, and less pollution. Another special project for cycling enthusiasts is Club Bike Hotels: accommodation facilities with the Bike Hotel logo provide a range of special services for bike-loving guests. This is Jesolo.
Cavallino Treporti: sustainability roots
connecting past, present and future.
The coast of Cavallino Treporti is a peninsula that seduces with the variety of its landscapes. 15km of golden beach that gently descends towards the sea, dunes, pine forest, but also historic villages, fortifications, vegetable gardens and intact lagoon landscape of great environmental value. Thanks to all this, Cavallino Treporti has been recognized as Unesco heritage site since 1987 with Venice and its lagoon Here the respect for the environment has deep roots in the culture and traditions of its inhabitants, who have always known the value of this sea and this land and harvest their fruits with a careful and skilful hand, to offer the traveller a treasure chest of food biodiversity mediated by a rich gastronomic tradition. Genuine hospitality translates everything into unmissable experiences for the palate and eyes. Deciding to fully experience all the nuances and scents of this land offers a wide choice of great opportunities: on foot, by rowing or electric boat, on horseback or by bicycle to do birdwatching or photographic safaris or even just favourite sports, the scenarios offered are rich in biodiversity and unique. Specialists in open-air tourism since 1955, our entrepreneurs are committed day by day and invest resources in making their offer increasingly sustainable, aware that an excellent up-to-date tourist offer and top-level services cannot be such today and in the future if they do not take into account sustainability and respect for the local community.
The awakening of senses starts when we are aware of our inner self. The sea has always been considered as a spiritual place, where to connect with Nature and where to find the bond with ourselves. Lido di Venezia is the ideal place where to experience these connections being in front of the Sea and having behind the magnificent Venice. Our Green Experiences are based on valorization and the joy of discovering the natural and cultural heritage of the island. During the year, we offer Sunrise yoga lessons on the beach, Sunset Nordic Walking on the beach, the opportunity to learn how to row in the typical Venetian style on traditional boats in the Venetian Lagoon. You will discover the Lido di Venezia history through a walking tour along the streets of the most Liberty island in Europe or with a promenade by bicycle from Lido di Venezia to Pellestrina island. Thanks to the wind on the beach, you will recharge yourselves riding a horse or practicing Kite Surf.
