the beach of the Lido (Venice). If you are already there, go to the Piazzale Santa Maria Elisabetta – Lido with a waterbus and just walk 10-minute walk to the sandy beach.

The Pellestrina’s island is the right place if you want a quite beach. The island is a lovely place where live many venetian fisherman and without to much tourism (there are no hotels). Do not miss to eat the local good fish! (From Lido take the Bus number 11 to Piazzale Santa Maria Elisabetta where the bus crosses the Laguna in a Ferry Boat reaching in 5 minutes the Pellestrina’s island. Then the same Bus runs the whole the strip of land surrounded on two sides by the sea and lagoon.
Alternatively, rent a bike and ride along the Lido (the same route is very nice venetiaduring the spring and the beginning of September). Do not miss the Ca'Roman LIPU Reserve: an example of a typical stretch of Venetian shoreline, those ribbons of earth and sand. http://www.veneziabike.it/pellestrina.html
