The ideal Lido for families and sports enthusiasts


The beach of Sottomarina Lido stretches for 10 km and in some places reaches almost 300 metres in width, offering visitors plenty of space for relaxing in the sun. It is known and loved for the very fine sand rich in minerals, promoting the perfect tan, while the sea air rich in iodine is recommended for heliotherapy. The very long shoreline is ideal for relaxing walks or for a run, and if you are an early riser, don’t miss out on enjoying the sunrise from the dam - a truly unforgettable experience.

For 2020, Sottomarina Lido has again been awarded the Green Flag (Beach suitable for families and children) and the Blue Flag, awarded by the FEE to European coastal resorts that meet the quality criteria for bathing water and the services offered, clean beaches and tourist marinas.

Chioggia is located at the southern end of the Venice Lagoon and, since 1987, has been a UNESCO World Heritage site as part of the Venice Lagoon. ‘City of Art’ and ‘City of the Sea’, Chioggia was the salt capital of the Middle Ages, then the second city of the Dogado of the Republic of Venice; the Torre di Sant'Andrea features the oldest functioning tower clock in the world.

There are a host of options for cycling enthusiasts. The ‘Laguna del Lusenzo naturalistic itinerary’ is a round trip of over 5 kilometres, in the heart of the countryside and far from traffic.  The ‘Sottomarina Lido Tour’ takes you along the sea front, past fishermen's houses, the murazzi, close to the fishing boats as far as the Sottomarina Dam. The ‘Tour of Pellestrina, Venice Lido’ takes you first by vaporetto or by boat, with your bike, down to the Island of Pellestrina, from where you cycle up to S. Pietro in Volta, and then take the ferry back to the Venice Lido.
