Cavallino Treporti is the perfect starting point for excursions dedicated not only to the discovery of Venice and its islands, but also of a territory that keeps its natural beauty intact.
Cavallino Treporti also means sea: since 2006 its beaches have been continuously rewarded with both the Blue and the Green Flag, reflecting the eco-sustainability of a coastline where the quality of the water, the services offered and safety, respect the highest standards.
The Cavallino Treporti beach
The Cavallino Treporti beach stretches for about 15 kilometers from the Cavallino lighthouse to the end of the peninsula, Punta Sabbioni.
Its coast, which slopes gently towards the sea, is composed of a fine, golden sand with dunes and framed by a shady pine forest. In this vast area children can play safely, perhaps engaging in one of the activities: from bowls and football to beach volley in dedicated and equipped spaces.
Shallow sea, wide sandy beach, dunes that surround it where reeds and rushes spontaneously rise anticipate the great pine forest that offers its shade during the hottest hours.
Lovers of water sports have the opportunity to practice surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing or simply enjoy the rays of the sun on an open air mattress.
What to do in Cavallino Treporti
To alternate the days on the beach with other activities, Cavallino Treporti offers the opportunity to practice bike riding. Surely the best means to get to know the surrounding area, the bicycle allows you to discover corners that are impossible to visit by car.
It is possible to make excursions in areas made of cultivated fields, pine forests, embankments and dunes such as, for example, the Via dei Forti and to immerse yourself in a past still present.
There are many cycle paths that wind through the coastal area and everyone can find what best suits their needs or decide to follow one of the itineraries we suggest.
The first itinerary is La via delle Tre Acque and can be done with a simple city bike or a MTB. It is a tour of about 14 kilometers on a mixed terrain that presents a medium difficulty. The itinerary reaches the Sile, the northern part of the lagoon and the Adriatic Sea in a ring-shaped route out of traffic.
The second one is the Via degli Orti della Laguna itinerary. It is also possible to use a normal bike as it has a medium difficulty and the whole tour is done on paved terrain. In this case the length is about 25 kilometers starting from the bridge on the Pordelio canal, passing through the center of Treporti to the ancient village of Prà di Saccagna until reaching Lio Piccolo crossing valleys and sandbanks.
The third one is the Via della Fortificazioni. A paved path of about 15 kilometers and a medium difficulty will lead you through a historical route characterized by the fortifications dating back to the period 1845-1920.
Those who want to explore the surroundings of Cavallino in a more comfortable way can go to one of the many boat trips at sea or in the canals of the lagoon. In both cases, you will be able to admire the Venetian coast and still intact nature. Definitely a great opportunity for all birdwatchers.
