A dense pinewood borders 15 kilometres of sandy beach. At Marina di Cecina, where the sea is limpid and easily accessible, numerous sports, walks in the pinewood and relaxing, fun-filled days can be enjoyed in all seasons.
But Cecina is more than just the sea, it is also history and culture as witnessed by the Etruscan and Roman artefacts on display in the Guerrazzi Museum and the settlements at Villa di San Vincenzino.
A tradition for hospitality – not by chance the annual BETA - Associated Tour Operators Market - is held in Cecina - ensures quality accommodation and facilities. Good food is important here, and a rich calendar of cultural events runs throug hout the year.
Situated at the mouth of a river, Cecina enjoys an ideal position between green countryside and the sea. This lively town is known for its shops, which offer a wide range of quality goods.
Families and young people alike meet in the traffic-free main street and square. Restaurants, pubs, trattorias and wine bars offer excellent dishes of fish, game and country produce.
Theatrical performances are many and varied, and sports can be enjoyed in the many modern structures: gyms, swimming pools, sports centre, stadium and a well-equipped bowling green.
Water parks and an important horse-riding centre attract sport fans and all those who enjoy staying outdoors.
Folkloristic and sporting events, fairs and fests take place throughout the year, and a lively street market is held every week.
Marina di Cecina
Clear, blue sea washes a long, wide sandy beach bordered by Mediterranean scrub. Sand dunes run up to a splendid centuries-old pinewood with plenty of space for walks and bicycle rides, as well as picnics and games.
Stretches of public beach alternate with well-established pay beaches all along the coast.
Facilities for water sports and fishing, as well as swimming and sailing lessons, riding stables and clay pigeon shooting are available.
There is a spacious, well-equipped marina. Hotels, boarding houses and camp sites are often surrounded by greenery.
Marina di Cecina is a peaceful, and at the same time, lively resort offering all the facilities its international visitors need for relaxing, enjoyable holidays.
