In Marina di Castagneto, a seaside hamlet of Castagneto Carducci, dense pinewoods and lush Mediterranean vegetation dominate, extending as far as the wide sandy beach, where the Renaissance Forte Lorense stands, which once defended the coastline. Not far from the fort, gaze at Villa Margherita, which was built in the early twentieth century by the Della Gherardesca counts and distinguishes itself with its Greek cross-plan chapel. The medieval-style Villa Emila is equally notable.

The clean and clear sea is the main attraction of course and local beaches have been regularly awarded with the Blue Flag. The coastline is welcoming, lined with bathing houses and “Punti Azzurri”, long stretches of free beaches guaranteeing facilities and assistance.

Take a break from the beach and visit the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, consecrated on August 15, 1988. It has an unusual octagonal shape, with a striking wooden roof and large floor-to-ceiling windows that look out at the garden. The theme park Cavallino Matto is located in the gardens, one of the largest of its kind all along the Tuscan coast.
