Location and how to reach
An hour’s drive from Venice, Bibione is one the most visited tourist destinations in Italy. The wide beach is one of its main and most appreciated features. The beach stretches for over 7 kilometres and is so wide as to be the ideal site to host top level well-attended beach events, such as the AeQuilibrium Beach Volley Marathon®. Bibione is the first tourist destination in Europe to get the EMAS certificate and to follow sustainable development principles. It has always been one of the favourite destinations for national and international tourism. Bibione offers memorable beach vacations, naturalistic excursions, guided tours to the neighbouring historical towns and much more. A rich network of cycling paths – mapped on Google Maps – branches out from the centre of Bibion, riding along unique naturalistic itineraries up to Lignano Sabbiadoro and to Caorle Valle Vecchia, by means of two cycle and pedestrian ferries.
Since its opening the Bibione spa establishment, close to the sporting area, has developed into a place where you can attain true wellness. In Bibione Thermae you will be able to rediscover the joy of feeling healthy and fit. In addition to spa treatments, there are: a state-of-the-art beauty farm, big indoor and outdoor thermal water swimming pools with whirlpools and pool cascades, saunas, Turkish baths, hay baths, a cooling room, a sunroom and refreshment services. Thermal water springs at 52°C from a spring situated 500 metres underground. According to the temperature of the water and its fixed residue, this water is classified as hyper-thermal, medium mineral and alkaline bicarbonate sodium fluoride. Thanks to its properties, the thermal water in Bibione Thermae has been recognized as therapeutic by the Italian Ministry of Health.
