Sunshine, gelato, and beautiful azure waters–it’s hard to imagine a better place to hit the beach than Italy, especially when there are so many adorable beach towns in Italy to choose from!Whether it’s the glitz and glamour of the Amalfi Coast or the laid-back, rugged beauty of Puglia, Italy’s enormous coastline ensures that there is an Italian coastal town around for every type of traveler.
The Italian coast is one of the most celebrated places in the world for summer and springtime swimming. But if you prefer the less-populated locations, you’ll want to look for these far-flung locations instead of the well-known beaches like Chiaia di Luna, which makes it onto most of the popular lists for travelers.
Northern Italy is an incredibly diverse region nestled between and around the Alps and the Apennines. The beauty of this stretch of Italian coast could easily rival Sardinia or Sicily in the far south while its rich history can hold its own even against Amalfi.
Surrounded by water on all sides, Italy has a unique coastline with nooks and crannies that create quiet swimming coves and picturesque seascapes. Italy's beaches are most crowded during July and August when Italians join throngs of foreign tourists to escape the heat.
