Thank to the mild climate, to the quiet and beauty of the landscape, Marina di Bibbona became a well-known seaside resort for a relaxing, funny holiday immersed in the nature. Called also Marina del forte, assumed this name from the Forte di Bibbona, a fort built in the 1785 as patrol point and defence of the coast from the pirates invasions.
Nowadays it’s partially used as expository space for fair and cultural events during the summer. The true jewel of Marina di Bibbona is its coastline, that includes wide thin sandy beaches, the “Tomboli”, typical vegetation of Mediterranean bush and the characteristic coastal dunes. The “tomboli”, formed during last century, have the function of sheltering inland cultivated areas from sea winds and are constituted by a low vegetation that divides the beach from inland. Marina di Bibbona is located just in the centre of two beautiful pinewoods that embrace the coastline in the northern part until Marina di Cecina, important tourist resort and in the southern part until Marina di Castagneto Carducci.
The pinewood is the ideal place to spend days in the refreshment of an extraordinary thick vegetation, organize funny pic-nic or walking, cycling or riding in the small tracks, followed by a pleasant fragrance of pine-trees. Long beaches lies of an unpolluted sea, some are equipped with bathing resorts and some free, they included 6 places of daily assistance to tourists. A space of the free beaches is reserved to dogs. The important award of the Blue Flag guarantees the cleanness of water. Ideal place for those who love water sports and bathes.
