The best beaches of Riccione

Here any beach is impressive. They could perfectly be part of the question What to do in Riccione? because every day many activities focused on tourism are planned.

La Riccione beach it is known as the Playa del Sol. A few years ago two beaches were remodeled and joined together as one to offer tourists a beach like you've never been able to dream. It has pool area (hallucinate: 130 pool m2 and several jacuzzi for 6 people each), theater, gardens, spa and sports. Every afternoon volleyball tournaments, cards, bowling, relaxing baths, group dances ... and on Thursdays is the big party, each week with a different theme. Oh! There is also a special area for children with workshops that they love, so you can enjoy the facilities without having to worry about your little ones.

Where to sleep

This is a great question. Did you know that there is more from 650 hotels in Riccione? You have different modalities to choose according to travel alone, with your partner, a group of friends or with the family. Luxury hotels, others more affordable, in the center or on the beach. You also have apart-hotels with several rooms and kitchen, so you can enjoy your free time as you want.

But my recommendation is, without a doubt, a hotel on the beach. It is the center of fun and relaxation in Riccione and it is close to the city, so you can enjoy downtown life, shopping streets, etc. whenever you want.
