The southernmost seaside resort of Le Marche is San Benedetto del Tronto – six kilometres of sand, known as the Riviere de Palme because of the five thousand palm trees planted there.
It is also the home of one of the most important fishing ports on Italy’s Adriatic coast , so it’s no surprise to find excellent fish restaurants in the area.
The beaches stretching north are mostly sandy and flat with easy swimming, but just beyond Ancona is the Conero Riviere where white cliffs fall steeply to the sea and you find a collection of sandy coves some only accessible by boat.
The main resorts are easily reached by train from Ancona if you don’t want to drive . Parking can be tricky at Conero because this is one of the most popular tourist spots in high season.
The sea can be dramatic here whereas along much of the coast it may be playful and choppy in some parts, but is positively tranquil in others. Swimming around the Grottamare to Pedaso stretch is ideal for children because there are breakwater rock walls
The coast along Le Marche is mostly quite flat and therefore cycling is easy. There is a cycle path stretching from Cupra through Grottamare and on to San Benedetto, but cycling is only one highlight of Le Marche's many offerings. More...
