Travel comfortably without queues, buy tickets online beforehand:
The village is built more or less along the beach. It is a very high quality and beautiful beach. It consists mainly of fine golden sand.
Entering and using the beach is free of charge. This is not the case everywhere in Italy. You have to pay for showers, toilets, sun beds and parasols. You can also spend money in the bars, cafes, snack bars and restaurants on the beach of Cavallino.
Location Beach Cavallino
The sandy beach stretches for more than 20 kilometres along the Adriatic side of the entire peninsula from Lido di Jesolo to the southern end of the headland (see map below). The Jesolo-Cavallino beach is one of the longest and most visited beaches in Europe.
About in the middle the beach is interrupted by the mouth of the wide river Sile. This river is considered to be the border between Lido di Jesolo and Cavallino, although the official boundary is a little further southwest. There is no bridge across the river directly on the beach, at about 1 km there is a larger road bridge. On the river Sile, by the way, one can go to Treviso by a houseboat or an excursion boat as far as we know.
On the other side of the peninsula, at the lagoon of Venice, there are no beaches. This is generally so in the region around Venice. Also on the islands of Lido, the long island of Pellestrina and in the city of Sottomarina are all beaches on the Adriatic. In the lagoon of Venice bathing and swimming is not popular or even forbidden.
Around the towns, hotels and large campsites on the Cavallino beach is mostly busy. In the high season the beach is even partly overcrowded. Those who like it a little quieter can try it at the end of the peninsula.
Prices at the stand of Cavallino
Prices for parasols and sunbeds: Renting sunbeds and parasols is expensive in Italy. This is also the case on Cavallino beach. In our beach section in the centre of Cavallino in June 2018 an umbrella and 2 sunbeds cost between 12 and 22 euros for a day. The price for umbrellas and sunbeds depends on the location. If you pay for a whole week, the price per day is slightly lower. There are also offers for the whole season between 450 Euro and 900 Euro. These prices are quite comparable in other rich holiday resorts in the north of Italy. In Greece, for example, one pays only 5-8 Euros per day for an umbrella with 2 sunbeds.
Prices Gastronomy: We ate a good, big pizza at the beach for less than 10 Euro. Also the prices for fast food like hamburgers are on German level. Cheap is usually cool water (0.5 liters from 1 euro), cola and the like costs 3 times as much as water. These enormous price differences are typical for the whole of Southern Europe. There is also ice to buy (ice on a stick about 1 -3 euros). Eating and drinking is cheaper in some restaurants on the main road, about 100 meters behind the central beach in Cavallino.
Prices toilets and showers: Also for the use of a toilet or a shower, one pays at the beaches around Venice, mostly the price is 1 Euro each. Holidaymakers who have rented an umbrella can use the toilets and showers in their beach area free of charge at some providers.
Water sports: Boats, surfboards, pedal boats, etc. can be hired in Cavallino at the usual Mediterranean prices.
Prohibitions on the beach of Cavallino
As is often the case in the northern Adriatic in Italy, there are exact rules and even fines if one does not follow the beach prohibitions signposted in many places. In the south of Italy, such things are often less strict.
Dogs are forbidden on the Cavallino beach, whether on a leash or not. Some Cavallino campsites allow dogs in certain areas. Playing ball is not allowed on the beach. We found this somewhat exaggerated, especially for smaller children. All vehicles, whether bicycle and of course cars and motorcycles, cannot be taken to the beach. Also roller skates (inline skates) are against the rules on many beaches around Venice.
Many beach guests find the prohibitions quite pleasant. This creates a quiet, relaxed atmosphere on the beach.
