Pratoranieri beach is one of the best known seaside resorts in Follonica, known for its golden sand, crystal clear water and formation that makes it perfect for both family holidays and water sports lovers.

Pratoranieri is less than 5km from the centre of Follonica, and can be easily reached on foot and by bicycle with a stretch of pedestrianized coastal road and a cycle path. The narrow and long beach is made up of fine golden sand, in the perfect style of Follonian beaches. It's mostly free, only a small part is dedicated to bathing establishments where it's possible to rent water sports equipment.

Pratoranieri is a coastline that's particularly suitable for children due to a seabed that remains low for many metres from the shore, earning it the Green Flag, an award for those beaches that are most suitable for children in terms of safety and services.
In addition to this, this stretch of coast has obtained the Blue Flag for the clarity and cleanliness of its waters.

Pratoranieri is a beach that's also popular among young people due to the various water sports activities and clubs for nightlife, while the Bau Beach Follonica Nord area is a pet-friendly area where you can enjoy the sea with your dog.
