Pisan Coast

Beaches and nature, a dream vacation

The Pisan coast is the main outlet to the sea towns of Pisa, San Giuliano Terme and Vecchiano, which includes the rich coast of the pristine Tyrrhenian beaches.

Travel to Marina di Pisa along the Viale D'Annunzio, which flanks the left bank of the mouth of the river Arno, and you can see people eel fishing, while enjoy the scenery of the Apuan Alps and the Tenuta di San Rossore beach.

Marina di Pisa offers small beaches surrounded by cliffs that overlook the sea, enriched with many Art Nouveau buildings. Continuing towards Tirrenia and Calambrone, the beaches become larger, and are immersed in a Mediterranean pine forest and surrounded by vast dunes. The sandy beaches, clear sea, vast pine forests, swimming facilities and sports and leisure (from horseback riding to golf; a great course is Golf Club Tirrenia) offer a varied location to relax or enjoy some adventure.

North of the mouth of the Arno River is Marina di Vecchiano. The long sandy beach is one of the few remaining pristine beaches, which contains a dune ecosystem of rare beauty. Modern and welcoming, the beautiful beaches and Mediterranean vegetation, with its bright colors make Marina Vecchiano the ideal destination for those wishing to spend their holidays surrounded by nature, just a stone's throw from the city and art centers.
