Different ways to experience the seaside
There are many ways to enjoy the seaside in Lignano: the choice is truly endless. 8 km of beach offer events of all kinds all Summer long, with sports, active living and, of course, relaxation.
The sea means sport and active living: Lignano Sabbiadoro has top quality sports facilities for every need: from walks on the shore in the early hours of the morning to an invigorating bike ride, horse riding along the green banks of the river, a couple of sets on the red clay tennis court, or a freestyle swimming contest in the brand new indoor Olympic-sized swimming pool.
From sports activities on the beach and in the pool to exercise in the public parks, there is no sport you cannot enjoy in Lignano, both at a competitive and amateur level.
An example of this is the European Youth Olympics, the national finals of the youth games and the athletics meetings that attract leading names in international sport.
Sailing is also a long-established tradition in Lignano and has produced both national and international champions. At the sailing school, even beginners can learn sailing techniques. The excellently equipped marinas in the area have around 5500 moorings for pleasure boaters. The more adventurous can try deep-sea fishing – a truly unique and exciting experience.
On the Riviera you’ll find the Lignano Golf Club, considered one of the loveliest courses in Italy, with 18 holes, PAR 72, over 6,278 metres.
The sea means relaxation
The sea means relaxation: in Lignano Riviera, for example, you can lose yourself in a good book, with the lapping waves as a background. Rediscover the pleasure of a morning spent on the beach, devoted to ‘me time’, far from the bustle of daily life.
Young kids can play on the seashore in complete safety, thanks to the gently sloping seabed, which is ideal for splashing around in complete freedom.
Immersed in a 100-year-old pine forest facing the sea, the Lignano Sabbiadoro Spa is housed in a modern building and offers the most advanced thalasso therapy treatments. The combination of sun and water is particularly effective, as Lignano’s seawater is especially rich in minerals and is therefore used with excellent results to cure arthrosis and – when nebulised – respiratory ailments. There is also an avant-garde beauty centre (www.termelignano.it).
