Maremma beaches. Situated along the spectacular Ligurian and Tyrrhenian coasts, amidst protected nature reserves and parks, they will have you staring in awe at their natural beauty and the ocean panorama in front of you. They are the very best beaches in Italy.
Walk for miles along white or black sands, or sit in a small cove straight out of a James Bond film with crystal clear waters and small fish in the shallows.
Immerse yourself in their warm Mediterranean waters and take a siesta in the cool shade of the pine trees that form their backdrop. Explore the rocky shores of the tiny coves for marine creatures and beachcomb with your youngsters. Or play tag along their long sandy shores and wear them out for the great deep sleep that comes from seemingly endless summer days.
Maremma is a haven for beach lovers just waiting to be found.
