A seaside escape in Lido di Venezia

Discover the island paradise where Venetians head for summer beach days in Lido di Venezia, an 11-kilometer-long sandbar just a short boat ride from Venice. In September, the glamorous Venice Film Festival draws the stars here, but the island quickly becomes a quiet escape again when the summer crowds depart, with long stretches of shoreline that welcome you to walk along soft sands and dip your toes into the Adriatic Sea. Once you've secured your perfect Lido di Venezia vacation rental, you'll discover a charming oasis awaits on walkable streets lined with cute sidewalk cafes and historic facades.

Splashing around in Lido di Venezia

When you picture Venice, sandy beaches don't often come to mind. But the island of Lido di Venezia offers a quiet escape from the bustle of the capital and the chance to spend lazy days at the seaside. The most-popular spot to lay down your towel is the central Blue Moon Beach, a short walk across the island from where the ferries dock. You can opt to stretch out for a picnic on the sand and enjoy the atmosphere, go for a swim in the warm Adriatic Sea or rent a kayak or paddle boat to float around on the water.

Charming streets in Lido di Venezia

Though the sun-soaked beaches of Lido di Venezia are what attract most visitors, there's more to do beyond the sand. Head to Santa Maria Elisabetta, a district that surrounds the ferry docks, for a wealth of shopping and dining opportunities. Along the waterfront on the eastern side of the island, you can stop for photo opportunities at historic structures like the 17th-century Santa Maria Elisabetta and the domed Tempio Votivo Della Pace di Venezia. You'll want to keep your camera out as you stroll down the picturesque streets, popping into little boutiques and gelato shops along the way.

Warm summer days in Lido di Venezia

Hot Italian summers attract locals and vacationers alike to Lido di Venezia for refreshing dips in the sea and relaxing days spread out on the sand under a shady umbrella with a gelato. The summer months tend to be quite popular, so if you plan your stay for this time, be sure to book your Lido di Venezia vacation rental early. Since daytime highs in the 70s are warm enough for a swim in May, June and September, why not opt for a visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall, when the island empties of crowds?

Seeking nature in Lido di Venezia

Lido di Venezia is an oasis for nature lovers, surrounded by the waters of the Adriatic Sea and the Venetian Lagoon. The south side of the island is a great place to experience the quiet natural beauty of the sandbar at spots like Alberoni Beach, where the oft-deserted shoreline is dotted with sand dunes and driftwood. Look for avian life down on this end of the island, as puffin have been spotted hunting for fish on the shore and Kentish plover shorebirds nest in the sand. After watching the sunset over the lagoon, it's just a short hop back to your Lido di Venezia vacation rental.
