The beach of Riva del Sisto is located near the mouth of the Sisto river, in the direction of San Felice Circeo. In front of the magnificent Pontine islands, the beach is framed by the gorgeous Circeo Gulf. It’s a long, wide beach with fine golden sand, crystal clear water, and an emerald green sea. The sandy, shallow seabed slopes gently, making it ideal for families with children and inexperienced swimmers.

Lido di Fondi, also known as Salto di Fondi, is a small beach between Terracina and Sperlonga. The beach of Fondi Lido is a great place for sailing enthusiasts to practice decent windsurfing, kitesurfing, and amateur sailing because it is very windy and well exposed to the sun.

The beach at Lago Lungo is a naturalistic gem.

The manmade lake is separated from the sea by a stretch of land with sand dunes, vineyards, and Mediterranean scrub. The lake, which runs parallel to the sea, presents a unique situation: being able to enjoy both the sea and the lake while yet concentrating oneself on bathing activities or fishing for eels.

The Blue Flag-awarded crystalline sea features shallow waters that gradually slope and is ideal for families with children.


The sand on both lakeside and marine beaches is beautiful, ranging from pristine white to golden.

The long, narrow beach is divided into a free beach and a beach administered by bathing businesses, where beach equipment such as deck chairs, umbrellas, and sunbeds can be rented. The purple heron, the marsh harrier, the kingfisher, and a variety of butterfly species may all be found in this area, making it an ideal destination for bird watchers.
