A long beach that has kept intact its natural and environment, and constitutes the longest stretch of un-urbanized coastline in the northern Adriatic.
The home of one of the largest coastal dune systems in the Veneto region of the pinewood habitat, L’arenile is particularly interesting and unique beach of its kind, and has been recognized as a Site of Community Importance and Special Protection Area of the European Community.
The island of Valle Vecchia is bordered on all four sides by marine waters, lagoons and rivers that create situations of considerable complexity and ecological interest. At the edge of a pine forest there are extensive forests, ponds and marsh reeds – efforts of environmental redevelopment.
The presence of migratory birds and resident population has become increasingly important. There are designed walkways, observation points for bird watching and a roof terrace from which to observe the surrounding lagoon.
You will find routes on foot, in the dunes, by bike or on horseback, through the fields and pine forest, guided excursions, and the opportunity of visiting the Museum of the Center to learn about this wonderful beach and make a memorable holiday.
