Free beach in Riccione

All beaches in Riccione are freely accessible. Most of the beach is occupied by equipped bathing establishments, where it is possible to rent sunbeds and umbrellas at rates that vary from area to area and in relation to the time spent on the beach. However, there are also free, unequipped beach areas that are accessible to the public, where you can stay on the beach for free, perhaps outfitting yourself with your own umbrella. These areas are an ideal option for those seeking a nature experience, perhaps a little less comfortable but undoubtedly freer.

Where are the free beaches in Riccione

Free beaches in Riccione stretch along various points along the coast. Here are the most well-known ones:
  • Marano free beach: located in the northern part of Riccione, it extends north and south of the mouth of the Marano River and is particularly popular with young people because of its proximity to outdoor clubs found in this area. Although free, this beach still offers showers and lifeguard service. There are no bars on the free beach, but there are many clubs, bars and restaurants nearby, so you can safely avoid bringing drinks, snacks or lunch with you. Navigate with Google Maps
  • Piazzale Roma free beach: is located in the central area, right in front of Piazzale Roma and Viale Ceccarini. Spacious and generally busy, offering showers and lifeguard service, it is easily accessible by bus no. 11, on foot or by bicycle, but it is also convenient to reach by car because, despite its central location, it is served by ample underground parking for a fee.
