Water sports

Italy has an about 7,600 km long coastline, in addition countless lakes, rivers and streams and of course several nice isles. Only five regions don’t border on the sea, but come up with likewise appealing inland waters in all sizes.

Therefore it is obvious that passionate water rats don’t have to search for a long time in order to find a suitable opportunity for their favorite sport. Swimmers and divers for instance should choose one of the more than 100 localities, which are decorated with the sought-after “Blue Flag” for clean water, endless sandy beaches and an intact water world. The bigger part of them is located in Tuscany, the Marches and in Liguria.

The wonderful Ligurian Riviera offers also the biggest number of landing stages for boats and ships, which are a popular meeting point for captains and hobby sailors. However beautiful marinas and suitable services can be found also along the other coasts of the Tyrrhenian, the Ionian and the Adriatic Sea. If you rather prefer adventures and challenges, you will surely like also the north of Italy with deep blue lakes, rolling rivers and mysterious gorges.

Swimming, diving, water and jet ski, surfing and kite surfing, rafting, kayak and canyoning, pedal boats and sailboats… If you like water, you will love Italy!
