About Lignano Sabbiadoro

Lignano Sabbiadoro is the most famous of all upper adriatic beaches. From July to mid-September it is very crowded and you will see all age groups. Mostly visitors come from the German speaking countries. There are two dog areas in the east (see map) therefore dog owners love to come here. The water is very shallow therefore it is great for children even toddlers. Unfortunately, as on many Italian beaches, most of the beach area is being taken from beach chair rentals which does not leave much free space. There's some kitesurfing in the area.

What to do at night

There's a nice shopping mile about 2 blocks from the shore drive with lots of cafés, restaurants, gaming areas and plenty of fashion stores. At night many visitors dress up nicely and go for a walk here.

What I like : Toller Strand für Kinder. Ganz flaches Wasser und immer wieder kleine Becken, in denen kleine Kinder und Babys gut spielen können. Für Kinder gibt es einige Spielplätze, für ganz kleine Kinder gibt's nicht so viel.

What I don't like : In der Hochsaison ist der Strand mit Liegebetten zugepflastert.
