The beaches in the Romagna Riviera
July 30, 1843, a date that marks the beginning of the history of the beaches in the Romagna Riviera and of the Italian and international seaside tourism. Many years have passed when the first bathing establishment the 'Privileged establishment of the Maritime Baths' was inaugurated in Rimini.
This great success is not due only to its outstanding features as the fine golden sand, the sea and the shallow waters, but also to the lifeguards as well to the hotel owners, able to understand, and often to anticipate, the tourists’ wishes. Today on the Romagna Riviera from the Lidi Ferraresi to Cattolica, there are kilometres and kilometres of beaches increasingly equipped to meet the needs of 'active holidays' of their guests. In addition to the classic beach sports, wellness lovers can indeed practice real open-air gyms or relax in a spa with massage centres by the sea. For those who cannot live without their mobile phones or computers even on holiday and want to 'surf' over the web waves, more and more bathing establishments offer internet point, webcam and Wi-Fi. When night falls, the beaches of the Romagna Riviera turn into a dream; on the Pink Night occasion, over 110 km of coastline lit up in 'Pink' for the longest and most memorable night of the year, the Summer New Year's Eve. From dusk to dawn, the promenade and the waterfront come alive with fireworks, music and shows of all kinds.
