If you’re looking for a holiday spot with well-equipped sandy beaches, a clear sea, which year after year continues to win the blue flag for cleanliness, and a nightlife comparable to few other locations, Jesolo is your paradise.

1. The beaches of Jesolo

Jesolo offers more than 15 kilometres of boundless beaches suitable for everyone, even four-legged friends, who have no fewer than three bathing establishments equipped just for them.

In addition to being clean and ideal for children, a variety of events and activities are hosted, organised in every moment.

From group dancing to aperitifs with music in beach bars, from playgrounds for the little ones to volleyball, football and tennis tournaments.

Many establishments rent canoes, surfboards, and stand-up paddle boards. 

2. What to do after a day at the beach

Jesolo is the city of fun, from theme parks such as Caribe Bay, New Jesolandia or  Gommapiuma, to spaces dedicated to science and animals, such as Tropicarium Park.

For motor fans, there’s Pista Azzurra: an 80,000 square metre go-kart area. Also not to be missed is the Jesolo Golf Club, a green oasis covering an area of 900,000 square metres in the middle of Lido, near the port of Piave Vecchia.

It is also worth going on the Giant Ferris Wheel, one of the largest in Europe, from which you can see the entire beach and which lights up at night. 

3. Explosive nightlife

From sunset onwards, Jesolo is transformed. The beaches are filled with young people who start with aperitifs and end the evenings dancing and moving among the numerous nightclubs.

These include the historic Muretto and La Capannina, which over the years have hosted generations of young people, VIPs, and famous Italian and foreign singers. 

4. Even more beyond the sea

If you love culture in addition to beaches and fun, you won’t go back home unsatisfied after a holiday in Jesolo. In fact, there are several places you can visit to enliven your days at the beach.

Let's start with the museums. The Vidotto Military History Museum exhibits numerous military-historical relics from the last century. The Jesolo Natural History Museum has the most important collection of life-size models of extinct animals in Italy. The Land Reclamation Museum in San Donà di Piave recounts the war fought by the inhabitants of the Lagoon to take cultivable and buildable land from the water.

The Early Christian Mosaics of Jesolo discovered in the 1960s have been carefully restored and can now be visited free of charge.

Also be sure not to miss the cultural and historical route Via Dei Forti, the Piave Vecchia Lighthouse overlooking the mouth of the River Sile and the Caligo Tower.
