The beach and the water are very nice. The attempts to get to the beach was difficult. All are private and costs money to enter. We were only here for a short 1/2 day so did not enter. Cost is about 7-10 Euro for a day. The city is a seaside resort for a lot of European summer sunbathers, and is only 30 kilometers from Pisa and Lucca, so close location is good. The beach is 6 miles long and there are over 100 private bathing establishments.
The promenade is 3 kilometers long and has many bars, eateries and discos in evenings. The CArnival in early part of the year is reknowned.

Directions: Just off Autostrada 12 fro Lucca, which is about 30 kilometers, or same distance form Pisa, or A11 from Florence

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
