Velvet Beach at Senigallia


Perfect for families with fine white sand and plenty of restaurants, sunbed concessions, and play areas. Since 1853 Senigallia has been one of the most popular seaside resorts on the Adriatic Coast with its thirteen kilometres of golden sands, the famous Velvet Beach. Thanks to the quality of the services it provides and the clean and safe bathing, the town has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag of the Foundation for Environmental Education in Europe. But the sea is not the only reason for choosing Senigallia. It has a beguiling old centre and offers an ideal base for exploring inland Marche towns. more



At Portonovo you find the most beautiful and famous bay of the Riviera del Conero. With a very dramatic approach road, the approach is spectacular. The Portonovo bay is extremely popular with many restaurants and parking areas, but these can be crowded and can fill up in the peak of summer. A shuttle train runs from the parking areas above when the car parks below are full. The green covering of Mount Conero is in contrast with the white cliffs and bright blue water of the sea. There are both free or managed beaches with many good fish restaurants where you can enjoy a great view over the sea.
Beach surface: gravel, pebbles, rocks.
How to get there: by car, along the “Strada Provinciale del Conero”, towards Portonovo. Then take the road direction Portonovo and Ancona going along the coast. There are few car parks. If traffic is blocked, it’s possible to take a bus from the parking on the top.
