Bibione

Bibione Holidays

Boasting one of the longest beaches you'll find on Italy holidays, Bibione invites holidaymakers to find a patch of sand and stay put. It typifies the leisurely Italian holiday, with pizzerias as far as the eye can see and outlet malls that'll have you fitting in with Italy's legion of fashionistas.

Italy in the delightfully-slow lane

Tucked way up into north-eastern Italy with Venice in the not-too-far distance is Bibione, a holiday destination that knows how to keep things chilled. Most visits here involve afternoons at the beach coupled with classic Italian bites and drinks alfresco.

You won't find towering monuments or all-night bar crawls here, just a sandy beach that stretches across the horizon, and whose wave of sunbeds and umbrellas invite you to kick back and relax.

You can break up the days with visits to a nearby waterpark or the outlet malls, a pint of your favourite back-home brew from a local pub or you could just camp out along the Adriatic Sea. That's the beauty of Bibione – it's the ultimate no-pressure zone.

Bibione Spaggia

At 11.5 kilometres, the Bibione Spaggia is one of Italy's longest beaches. It averages at 400 metres in width, too, so there's plenty of space for you and your towel. This long stretch of golden sand gently shelves out to the Adriatic Sea, and is covered with umbrellas and sunbeds available for rent.

Bibione has recently launched a massive project to bring free Wi-Fi to the Bibione Spaggia too, so doing the #hotdogsorlegs challenge just got a whole lot easier.

There's also the Lido dei Pini at the entrance to Bibione – a beautiful natural beach area. Scattered behind the beach is a line of pine trees along with hotels, restaurants and shops, plus a promenade that heats up in the summer. It's also the site of the Bibione lighthouse – also known in Italian as Il Faro di Bibione – but you'll have to walk or rent a bike, as it isn't accessible by car.

Summertime parks

Bibione itself is largely a quiet and relaxing resort, but there are a handful of parks to keep the energy up in the summertime and keep this a favourite amongst families booking package holidays to Italy. Luna Park Adriatico is a traditional fairground clad in rainbow-coloured lights and activities like a ferris wheel and carnival games.

While out along the fringes of town, about 15 minutes away in Lignano, you'll find Aquasplash, Italy's very first waterpark. It's a vibrant alternative to the beach, packed with a wave pool, high-flying slides and sunbathing gardens.

Outlet malls

The Via Orsa Maggiore is the main drag in Bibione but, for some serious shopping, gems are found on the outskirts in area outlet malls. About a 40-minute drive from town is the Palmanova Outlet Village, where deals are to be found at designer stores like Guess and Calvin Klein.

And, as if that wasn't enough, the Noventa di Piave Outlet Village is just a little further beyond. That's where big names like Armani, Burberry and Gucci await, where you can get even bigger sales.

Casual clubs

Though Bibione isn't exactly a party capital, it still knows how to keep the night going with a handful of bars and dance clubs. For the most part you'll find a casual bar atmosphere with a surprising number of international beers on tap and sports on television, but night owls need not be afraid.

The area's collection of nightclubs will keep you occupied, featuring DJ sets, warehouse-style dancefloors and themed parties. On the whole, though, the party environment quiets down in the winter season, so rock up in the summertime for maximum after-hours fun.
