North of the Arno’s mouth, the Marina di Vecchiano, a sandy coastline not far from some of the most beautiful cities in Tuscany, stretches through the heart of the Migliarino San Rossore Massaciuccoli Nature Park. This spectacular coastline hugs four km of golden beaches, stretching from the mouth of the Serchio River to the town of Torre del Lago Puccini. A dune ecosystem of unmatched beauty engulfs the shore, today protected by the Migliarino Nature Park: it’s truly one of the rare, untouched gems of the Tuscan coastline.
The coast offers countless free beaches, though you’ll also find equipped beach resorts boasting modern and welcoming structures that blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape, offering much needed peace and quiet. Marina di Vecchiano is a fantastic destination for anyone looking for a holiday in touch with nature, all the while remaining close to the commodities of city life.
The Migliarino Nature Park, marked by soft dunes rich in vegetation that merge with the typical Mediterranean scrub, borders spectacular beaches, an irresistible invitation for hiking enthusiasts to explore the secrets of the coastline. The evocative landscape flanking the sea offers tours by foot or on horseback, where you’ll discover stone walls and olive groves that paint the living countryside, a perfect year-round destination.
