If you are already thinking about where to spend your next summer vacation, I can advise you to pay attention to Lido Di Jesolo. This is a fairly young seaside resort, it began to develop in the sixties of the last century. The city is located on a long sand spit and is washed by the warm waters of the Adriatic Sea. From the cold north winds the area is reliably protected by the Dolomites.
Lido di Jesolo is essentially a fifteen-kilometer sandy beach, along which in rows are hotels of different stars and price categories.
There are practically no particularly tall buildings here, mostly hotels are small and very comfortable, but they are quite tight, window to window, as a rule, there is no green area at the hotels.
On the first line from the beach there are more expensive hotels, but even if you choose accommodation on the fourth line, you will reach the beach in 5-10 minutes, moreover, on flat ground without slides.
The beach itself is a very wide strip of soft dark yellow sand. There is free space left by the water, and then there are slender rows of sun loungers. We counted 12 rows.
Each hotel has its own place on the beach and its sun loungers. When you arrive at the hotel, you are given a card indicating the number and numbers of sun loungers. It is very convenient. There is always confidence that your place will be waiting for you.
The beach is cleaned every day, the sand is always clean.
There is no need to look for urns, there are a lot of them, there are free toilets, showers, changing rooms.
The entrance to the water is very gentle and without surprises such as stones, glass, pits. The water is quite clean, but not perfectly transparent and not as beautiful in color as can be found on some pebble beaches. For lovers of swimming in the depths or jumping into the water there are long wooden piers.
If the price of your hotel does not include the provision of sun loungers on the beach, you can rent them, but this pleasure is not cheap. You can find a place on the free "wild" beach, but there are few of them, they are extremely rare, you need to be prepared that you will have to go 1-2 kilometers along the coast.
Near the wild beach there is a special beach for tourists with dogs. Dogs are not allowed in other places on the beach. Read my article about traveling with a dog.
Behind the rows of sun loungers along the entire beach is a pretty paved path with benches and flower beds.
Well, behind it are the first-line hotels. If you look at this bunch of hotels, then you understand that they were built as they should, without any plan. There is no single style. Truly beautiful buildings are extremely rare.
Behind the second line of hotels is just a charming street, surrounded by the greenery of pine-pine trees.
In the daytime, the street looks deserted and a little sleepy, and in the evening it wakes up, multi-colored lights come on, and numerous restaurants and shops open. This street is considered the longest shopping street in Europe.
In the evening, from 20 hours, car traffic is blocked and it becomes pedestrian. Gradually, the street is filled with idly walking tourists, moving from one restaurant to another, looking into numerous shops.
Who will suit the resort
Families with children
A warm sea, a sandy beach with a gentle entrance, a long swimming season from May to the end of September, playgrounds - all this attracts families with children to Lido di Jesolo. In addition to the sea, children will definitely enjoy the local Sea Life aquarium and the Aqualandia water park.
Lovers combine beach and entertainment
In addition to overheading, surfing, diving and yachting are possible on the beach. The town has mini-golf and tennis courts. And in the evening, paradise for shopaholics begins, discos, attractions open, live music plays.
Lido di Jesolo is a great starting point for numerous excursions. Not far from Padua, Verona, you can get to Lake Garda and only 30 kilometers to Venice. In addition to the presence of the sea and a beautiful beach, there are also more budget prices for hotels. So it is better to live in Lido di Jesolo, and go to nearby top places for excursions.
Venice can be reached by bus from the bus station. Bus schedule and fare see here. But this option is not very interesting. It is much more pleasant to get to Venice by boat by boat from the small local port of Punta Sabbioni.
At the reception of many hotels, you can buy a combined ticket, which includes travel by city bus to the port, a boat to Venice and unlimited access to all boats running on the canals of Venice itself. It is not only very convenient, but also financially beneficial. Tickets are either one-day or for several days.
