You can find beach life, family-friendly or glamorous, only 20 minutes away. The 'free beach' near Forte dei Marmi invites both young and old to have fun on the beach. You can also take a trip down after a day's work to enjoy the sunset, with the added bonus of having the beach (virtually) all to yourself, since the tourists leave early in the evening.
Or if you prefer, you can enjoy the exclusiveness of a luxury resort, the so called Bagnos, where you can rent your own sun beds, booth and showers. The adjoining bars and restaurants are an invitation to have a drink or meal right next to the ocean.
And if you feel like having a day at sea, you can take a boat trip from Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi or La Spezia to Cinque Terre or to the islands Tino and Tinetto in the gulf of La Spezia where there is a quarry for Portoro marble.
