Beaches of Le Marche
Beaches close to Villa Rosa Bianca are of two types:
Beaches with chalets
Here you pay for the use of a sunbed and umbrella. The chalet usually offers toilets and a changing area and may well have a bar or even a restaurant, the general standard of which is very high.
Exactly as it sounds – put your towel down and enjoy.
Much of the coast line is protected by a breakwater which provides sheltered bathing, ideal for families with young children or less confident swimmers, but it is also possible to find areas that are open to the sea and where you can enjoy the waves as they come ashore.
A few suggestions to get you started:
A quaint little town about 20 minutes from Villa Rosa Bianca. It has lots of chalets, a beautiful sandy beach and crystal clear water.
Grottamare has been a popular seaside resort for over 100 years with good reason. It has a long sandy beach with a mix of chalets and free beach – a firm favourite with all our guests. Whilst walking down the ‘lungomare’, you will see many fine villas built in Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles.
Our nearest beach, which has quite a small bathing area with a couple of chalets. The free beach areas are very small or you may have to use the rocks along the coastline. The sea can be a slightly turbid at times. You can enjoy a great ice cream or cake at one of our favourite pasticceria, the Vanilla Cafè.
Just fifteen minutes from Villa Rosa Bianca, just below Campofilone, there is a large expanse of free beach. There are a few chalets, but most of this area is just to enjoy the beach and the sea without any extra facilities. Depending on whereabouts on the shore you are you can enjoy either sand or pebbles. It’s where the locals go!
The Two Sisters' Beach
La spiaggia delle due sorelle
This beach is considered by many to be the most beautiful beach in Italy, but it does need some planning to get there. It nestles under the steep cliffs of the Monte Conero peninsula, and the beach itself can only be reached by a long hike along a very steep and tricky path, or by ferry from Sirolo and Numana. Despite that it can be very busy in high summer, but might just be worth the effort.
