In this beach locale in the Veneto Region, the beach is not solely an oasis of light play and relaxation, but also for sports, whether on the sand or in the water, along bike lanes or in outdoor gyms.

Bibione is an island on the shores of the Tagliamento River estuary, connected to terra firma by a bridge over the Litoranea Veneta. Originally the area was a moor covered by dunes and pinewoods, where horses were bred after its reclamation, begun in the 1920s, Bibione was built. Today the city possesses one of the largest and best-equipped beaches along the Adriatic at almost five miles long, the strand reaches almost 1,312 feet deep in some parts. Most importantly, the beach is perfectly-outfitted for playing sports and getting in shape.

As early as spring, and during the rest of summer, Bibione hosts fitness fanatics of all ages and every ability level to have fun testing their skills under the sun.

On the beach neighboring Piazza Zenith, in Bibione's heart, are game areas and children's entertainment, along with a tensile structure for spinning and Zumba, aerobics and step classes, all guided by excellent instructors. Bibione is one of the best places in Europe for sport tourism, for individuals, groups of friends, couples and families. Still, it is not lacking for relaxation offerings, particularly thermal baths, charming landscapes in which to stroll or cycle, and the natural oasis of Valgrande, 360 hectares for hiking. Beyond the beach, Bibione's town center hosts shops and locales that further liven up this sea resort, day and night.
