Relaxation and serenity amid the beaches and the pine forest
Known as the pearl of the Upper Adriatic, and located just a few dozen kilometres from Venice, Jesolo is one of the most popular Italian holiday destinations for families, sports enthusiasts, and anyone else in search of comfort, serenity, and relaxation. The coastline offers 15 km of fine sand and well-equipped beach facilities, all lying just beyond the town’s beautiful, shady pine forest.
Boasting the European Blue Flag ecolabel for several years now for the quality and cleanliness of its waters, the town has beaches of fine amber-coloured sand that are reputed to be among the most modern and well-equipped of the Upper Adriatic, and even boasts cutting-edge facilities in terms of beachgoer safety and beach cleanliness.
Not to mention the natural landscapes, and the relaxing strolls through the greenery between the three tourist centres of Centro, Faro and Pineta. Not far from the pine forest, cycling enthusiasts will find wonderful pathways to take along the banks of the Sile and Piave rivers, immersed in the quiet of the lush surrounding nature.
The all-inclusive hotels in Jesolo offer personalised services and assistance for cyclists, providing guides, and recommending itineraries and stopping points.
For sports enthusiasts, the city offers a wide range of opportunities: on the beach, visitors can engage in all kinds of water sports, thanks to the sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, and diving schools. Inland, visitors can enjoy a leisurely round of Minigolf, or even real golf at the Jesolo Golf Club.
Family fun parks
Covering an area of 80,000 square metres, the Aqualandia water park in Lido di Jesolo faithfully reproduces the atmosphere and beauty of a Caribbean island, and is an absolute must for every visitor, especially on hotter days, or as an alternative to the beach. And who could resist the immaculate sand and crystal-clear waters of Shark Bay, a real Caribbean beach surrounded by palm trees, rocks, and beach bars. Not to mention the colourful inflatables at Funnyland, the children’s play area, and the record-breaking attractions like the tallest slide and bungee jumping tower in Europe.
For those who prefer the world of nature and animals, near the beaches there’s also the Tropicarium Park, an indoor park with animal species from all over the world. And then there’s Sea Life, a marine park with 30 large tanks housing over 5,000 specimens of fish and molluscs from all around the globe, and a historical cultural itinerary dedicated to the origins of Venice and its Lagoon.
