Alberoni Beach (Spiaggia degli Alberoni)
A mere stone’s throw across the lagoon from Venice is the island of Lido. At its far end, some 3 kilometres from the city, is the village of Alberoni. Despite its proximity to Venice there is little of note here, that is except for an impressive expanse of dune-backed sand facing into the Adriatic Sea.
Strolling along this golden sand expanse you really would have little idea you were within earshot of the bells of St Marks, or any city really. The extensive dunes, from which the village gets its name, form part of a WWF nature reserve which is home to some unique flora and fauna.
Talking of things natural, the far southern end of Alberoni is a naturist beach. The clothing-optional area is backed by an area of woodland and dunes, which is where most of the nudism tends to take place.
If getting naked isn’t your thing then a round of golf might appeal to you. Alberoni is home to the only golf course in Venice, an 18-hole course which winds its way through the trees protecting it from the coastal breezes.
