The most beautiful beaches for swimming in Italy

Summer is close and with it the long-awaited beach holidays. So why not think about the sea in Italy? Beautiful, clean, and, in some cases, unknown, the Italian sea is a palette of cobalt blue and aquamarine, with endless shade of blue and turquoise. Are you looking for holidays in Italy near the sea? Well, the Italian peninsula is dotted with coves, bays and beaches among the most beautiful in the world,  just waiting to be explored.

Baia dei Saraceni, Liguria

Baia dei Saraceni is certainly one of the most beautiful places in Liguria. Next to the road that runs along the coast between Finale Ligure and the pretty village of Vaigotti you can reach this small bay. Fabulous colours, clear water and breathtaking cliffs; you can’t help but stop. Baia dei Saraceni is really a fantastic destination, ideal for those who want to sunbathe or swim surrounded by incredible vegetation, is among the most picturesque tourist areas of Liguria and moreover it is completely free.

Zingaro Nature Reserve, Sicily

Greeks and Latins called it “Cetaria” for the large quantity of tuna in its sea. We want to call it “wonder” for its crystal clear waters, among the most beautiful in Italy. We are talking about the wonderful Zingaro Nature Reserve, that stretch of Sicilian coast that extends for 7 km from San Vito lo Capo to Castellammare del Golfo. An explosion of plants and flowers for an uncontaminated nature inhabited by wild animals and overlooking the blue sea of Sicily. One of its most spectacular coves, legendary and crowded because of its beauty is Tonnarella dell’Uzzo.


If the paradise on earth had a known shape it would be this: flat indigo water, rocks with a shape imitating strange figures and stone legends. In the municipality of Baunei, in the province of Ogliastra, Cala Goloritze is sheltered from prying eyes and the prerogative of bathers less lazy. To conquer paradise, arm yourself with spirit and courage.

The suggestive path of about an hour’s walk passes through an old mule track once used by charcoal burners, beaten by the sheer sun. You can also check apartments for rent in Italy near the sea.

San fruttuoso, Liguria

Remaining in Liguria, another wonderful beach, much loved also by Italians is that of the Abbey of San Fruttuoso, located on the promontory of Portofino, in the municipality of Camogli. The bay where the pebble beach opens, washed by the crystal clear emerald sea, is dominated by the picturesque medieval abbey and closed by the rocky ridge of the promontory covered with Mediterranean vegetation. You can arrive here only by sea, with transports organized by Camogli or Portofino. The beach of San Fruttuoso is Blue Flag.

Spargi Island, La Maddalena, Sardinia

In the ranking of the 7 most beautiful beaches in Italy, conquering the first place, the incredible Cala Corsara, beach located on the island of Spargi, in the archipelago of La Maddalena, in front of the northern coast of Sardinia. This would be the perfect spot where to rent your holidays apartment in Italy.

The beach opens onto a cove located on the southern coast of Spargi, an island west of La Maddalena. Cala Corsara offers a dreamlike setting, with its white sand beach and granite rocks, which rise behind the beach, forming curious pointed points covered with Mediterranean vegetation. The sea is fabulous, transparent and crystal clear with colors ranging from turquoise to all shades of blue and blue. A marvel not to be missed.

San Vito Lo Capo, Sicily

A wonderful, typically Sicilian setting for the fabulous beach of San Vito lo Capo.

This tourist location with magnetic charm for families and couples is located not far from the airport of Trapani. Centuries of Arab influence have left their mark on local cuisine. The couscous is the main specialty, to it is dedicated an important annual event the Cous Cous Fest.

Spiaggia dei Conigli, Lampedusa, Sicily

We find in addition the island of Lampedusa with its Conigli beach. It is really difficult to find the right words to describe the feelings that this precious destination manages to convey to the lucky people who visit it. Not by chance, she was elected by TripAdvisor the most beautiful in the world, beating the competition of Playa de Ses Illetes or Playa Flamenco. From the photos you could mistake it for a Caribbean area, but this Mediterranean jewel is in Italy!
