SPIAGGE NATURISTE DI SISTIANA

 

 

 Nude Beach. The very mention of these two words often arouses feelings embarrassment, outrage or even a combination of this. For  thousands of people, however, the idea of a nude beach seems, well, natural. After all, we all come into this world wearing only our birthday suits.

 

Nude and topless beaches first became popular along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts of France in the 1950s. Since then, several beaches from Crete to the Caribbean have become "clothing optional."

 

In the United States and much of Europe, people generally arrive at Bare Beach already in bathing attire, shedding it after deploying their blankets or chairs and umbrella.

 

But in France, Croatia and here in Trieste, you can observe the bewitching custom of men and women appearing at the beach in street clothes and completely stripping down in situ.

 

Along the triestine Riviera there are 4 nude Beaches.

 

There are two wild beaches where one can freely choose to be bare or to keep swimming suit on : Cava Casali (Sistiana), Costa dei Barbari ( Sistiana).

 

So some time naturists prevail, and the other textiles. The point is you can choose by yourself and don't have to worry about any harrasment.

 

Then, between Sistiana and Trieste, the Liburnia and the Filtri Beach (older people/obligatory nude).



No matter what you are going to Trieste for, you should make a point of visiting the beach every day.

 You will you find some fantastic restaurants to sample the tantilising local cuisine.

 

 

 

As an alternative, if you want to get out and about,  Trieste is just around the corner with their famed selection of elegant piazzas and abundance of beautiful churches. The Venetian Riviera is home to two of the world’s most amazing cities, as well as busy beach resorts, blending a beach holiday with city breaks.

 

 

 

 

From Duino to Muggia the coast around Trieste  is well known for its indentedness and variety and it is characterized through stones and rocks and the Triestine coast is filled with beaches that are some of the cleanest in Europe.

 

 

Barcola

 The beaches vary in quality and quantity from place to place as is the organization of the beaches.

Onde fra i fiori gialli - Le Ginestre ( Sistiana)

Una spiaggia come poche in’Istria, servizi di prim’ordine, tranquillità garantitaSelvaggio dal punto di vista naturalistico e allostesso tempo raffinato, lo stabilimento balneare Le Ginestre viene inaugurato ufficialmente nell'estate del 1960. Si raggiunge dalla Costiera scendendo all'altezza di Marina di Aurisina. Da allora lo stabilimento gode di un continuo e costante apprezzamento del pubblico.

Le Ginestre, caratterizzato dai cespugli di fiori gialli che gli danno il nome e lo abbelliscono assieme ad agavi e bougainville, è frequentato, nonostante i prezzi non propriamente popolari, da molte famiglie con bambini, gruppi di giovani, e da affezionati clienti anche di fuori Trieste, che si distribuiscono lungo la sua spiaggia sassosa, o sui suoi lastroni di pietra circondati da possenti massi a picco sul mare. Principalmente ai bambini è riservato, invece, un piccolo litorale di ghiaia sottile degradante nel mare su cui si affacciano grandi capanni in legno, prenotati di anno in anno, dotati ognuno di uno spazio ombroso nel quale rinfrescarsi durante la pausa pranzo o fare un pisolino lontano dalla folla. Giovani coppie e mamme con figli al seguito sono il nocciolo duro dei frequentatori della struttura durante la settimana, ai quali si aggiunge, il sabato e i giorni festivi, un pubblico molto più eterogeneo, che raggiunge anche le 500 presenze giornaliere. I prezzi di ingresso per gli adulti vanno dai 7 euro feriali agli 8 nei giorni festivi e prefestivi.Un capanno con tre ingressi costa dai 41 ai 44 euro giornalieri. Una cabina con due ingressi dai 29ai 31 euro. Chi trascorre, per scelta, l'estate in città rinunciando alla vacanza altrove, si indirizza verso il mare azzurro di questa spiaggia, molto più ben frequentata di  quelle d'oltreconfine. Una caratteristica di tutto il litorale della Costiera, abbinata qui, però, ad una serie di servizi.

In primis il parcheggio, che consente di accedere quasi al mare senza lunghe scarpinate. In funzione da due anni, è un servizio di noleggio canoe: un giro di mezz'ora pagaiando costa 4 euronei giorni feriali e 4,50 in quelli festivi. Un'oradai sei euro feriali ai 7 euro festivi

BAGNO LE GINESTRE: un angolo ancora selvaggio che garantisce tranquillità ma ottimi servizi.

 

 

 

Climate for the triestine Coast:

 The warmest months are July and August when the air temperature is between 25°C and 35°C (77°F - 95°F) and the sea temperature reaches up to 28° C (83°F). The rain is rare.  This is the time when most of the tourists come. If you're for a quieter time at the beach and not so many tourists, maybe June and September are months for you. They are also very warm months with average temperatures around 25°C (77°F) and the sea surface temps between 20° C and 25°C (68°F - 77°F).

Sunbathing and swimming is also possible in April, May and October, but it really depends on the weather and chances are that you'll get more sunshine in the southern Adriatic. In that period expect temperature between 15°C and 25°C (59°F - 77°F) and the sea temperature between 16 and 21°C (61-70°F). This is a period with more rain and windy days.
The air temperature on the coast in winter months is between 5 and 10° C (41-50°F) and the sea temperature is in average 12°C (54°F ). Temperature during winter in inland areas can go well under 0°C (32°F ).

 

 

 

The Venetian Riviera has more than its fair share of exuberant Italian style, fantastic food and excellent beaches. And if this isn't enough, some of Italy's most beautiful cities are within easy reach.

You should use sunscreen because there is nothing worse than getting a nasty sunburn on the first day of you vacation, rendering yourself out of any seaside activities until you leave. Sunscreen is in demand and therefore expensive during the summer months so it would be wise to budget for it.

 

Dama Bianca ( Duino  )

 

Our Beaches are best May-Oct, though the water is still a little chilly up to June. Beware crowds July-Aug.
They are often pebbly or hot sand so swimming shoes are useful.

Mediterranean beaches are not truly comparable with those of the Caribbean or Pacific - the water is cooler and the sand generally coarser, or even pebbles. Pretty, shady, palm tree fringes are also rare, though hot sunshine, friendly locals and low prices are almost guarenteed.
Going topless is not a problem.

 

Lido di Santa Croce ( Trieste Sistiana)

 

The Bays of the triestine Riviera

In these bays the access to the sea is easy and gently sloping, whereas for the younger ones who enjoy junping into the sea, there are a few beaches with higher rocks which fall directly deeper into the sea and thus make acrobatic stunts possible.

We strongly advise you to become familiar with the beach and the depth of the sea at this spot prior to junping into it: the shimmering of the sea and the changes of high and low tide can be misleading so that jumps into shallow spots can sometimes result in heavy injuries.

The indentedness of the coast and the variety of the undersea result in a very lush sea flora and fauna so that divers, professionals as well as non professionals, will certainly enjoy it. The bringing up of shell remnants or strange stones is a frequent pastime and such things are the dearest souvenirs which will always remind you of your summer holiday at the Adriatic Sea. At this point, we would also like to advise you not to bring up living organisms or any kind of protected sea species, since you would jeopardize the submarine eco-system. Please, also be careful and do not swim out too far into the open sea while diving and do not dive without a signal balloon which shows your location to fishing-and speedboats.

 

Spiagge della Costa di Sistiana (Trieste)

Lido di Polvi (Trieste)

 

Some people are a bit dissapointed with the fact that the eastern part of the Gulf of Trieste  doesn't abounds in sandy beaches, but you will often hear same people later saying that this is maybe even better because this is the reason sea water is so clean and crystal clear. 

And when we say crystal clear, we really mean it.

 

Le Ginestre ( Trieste Sistiana)

 

 Eastern Adriatic is for a reason referred as the cleanest Mediterranean sea.The eastern Adriatic deepens from the clear shallows to jade green and cobalt colours of the deeper waters. Not many people can determine the color of the Adriatic sea. Sometimes it's dark blue, sometimes greenish-blue. The fact is that the sea, depending on the time of day and the angle of the sun's rays overflows into a thousands nuances. However, it is always beautiful and unique.

Bring, or buy when you get there, a pair of plastic water shoes. Maybe it doesn't look the best, but it will help you moving around the rocky and pebbly beaches or getting in or out of the water. In many places, especially isolated beaches, you will find sea-urchins, which is another good reason to have some sort of a foot wear. But be glad when you see sea-urchins, it means the water is absolutely clean because they live only in especially clean waters.

 

Stabilimento Le Ginestre (Trieste)

 

Bring out everything that you bring in, especially trash. It is important to leave sites as clean or cleaner than you found it for the next person. This especially applies for isolated beaches, so if you don't take out your trash, the area will be spoiled, since no municipality is likely to do it. Also, strip cigarette butts from the ground. No one likes sunbathing in an ashtray. Respect and protect the wildlife. 

BARCOLA

 

 

Maybe it´s a little bit generous to call this a beach but all the same, every year this walkway is literally under siege from thousands of people of all ages from Trieste. They come to stretch their towels out and catch the sun. The walkway goes from Barcola up to the junction with the road leading to the castle at Miramare. The walkway is made up of a series of semicircuar terraces which sit above the main street. Below the street there are cement benches and two small pebble beaches. Further up towards the junction, people sit out and enjoy the sun only three metres away from the main road into the city. 

 

 

There are even topless sunbathers there. There are shower and bathing facilities available as well as some changing areas. If you come here between July and August, finding a space for your towel becomes like finding a carparking space in the city centre in rush-hour. Even walking about becomes difficult because the place packed with large groups of students.

 

 Of course it is free to use and there is no timetable, although swimming at night is forbidden. However, it is a relaxing and pleasant place to go for a walk throughout the year. There is disabled access to the sea.

 

 

GRADO (TS)

 

 

Grado is well endowed with many of nature's gifts, including a beautiful climate, gently sloping shores and more than 20 km of beaches of very fine sand.

The main beach of Grado is widely considered one of the most beautiful and best-equipped in Italy, winning awards year after year.

Grado's Celebrated Thermal Spa

 In the 19th century, the Austrian emperor Franz-Joseph proclaimed Grado the "Official Health Resort" of the Hapsburg Empire. The local microclimate, where the air is blessed with abdundant iodine, along with the natural sands and seawater rich in beneficial salts, are what have made Grado's world class spa the leading spa in Italy for more than a century. A full range of modern facilities are located within the newly renovated Spa Center, including a massage center, solarium, sand-baths, hydro-massages, inhalations, fitness center, saunas, steam baths, heated swimming pool, as well as physiotherapy and aesthetic medicine units.

Trieste - Spiaggia delle Ginestre ( Sistiana)The coast of Trieste is well known for the sandy beaches of the Island Grado and the  indentedness and variety of the Sistiana's Coast,  characterized through stones and rocks. Very soon You will become aware of the beauty and the charm of the coast which has a lush submarine life and where every beach is different and certainly represents something worth exploring.
Some people are a bit disappointed with the fact that the eastern part of the Gulf of Trieste  doesn't abounds in sandy beaches, but you will often hear same people later saying that this is maybe even better because this is the reason sea water is so clean and crystal clear. And when we say crystal clear, we really mean it.

For a 14 kilometers (from Duino to Miramare) Trieste coast is made of rocks jutting out over the sea ("falesie"); at their foot, beyond the Sistiana bay, there are some suggestive bays isolated from the traffic of mass tourists. 

 For some kilometers North of the city of Trieste and South of the small town of Muggia, the coast is low and of the Mediterranean type. There are many organized beaches that usually cost about € 4 per person and provide fresh water showers, changing cabins, umbrellas, toilets, bars restaurants, swimming pools and life guards.

Most beaches are of the "swim at your own risk" variety, and if you ask the locals at your location they would be happy to point you towards the best waters.

The sun can be relentless between 12 noon and 4 in the afternoon, so the best time to swim anywhere in Trieste is between 9-11 AM and 4-8 PM. The sea is usually very calm in the morning hours, and as a rule the afternoon breeze brings some waves of varying sizes and intensity.

 

 

  DUINO (TS)


The cliffs afford an amazing sense of space and exposure to the sky. And below, verdant plant life, vines and cypresses cascade down the ribbed rock that emerges, in porous spikes, from the cliff-face. The cliff is made of limestone and the erosion of rainwater accounts for the textured quality of the rock.

 

The coast meanders, so that the cliffs sometimes face one another allowing dramatic views towards Trieste and reflections on the calm water. And most days, all you hear is the sound of wind.Some of the beaches have the look of a hollow shell, slowly disappearing into the emerald-blue sea. These shells have been washed out by centuries of rain and sea waves, waves that in time were able to round and smooth the limestone sediments from which these shores have been formed. 


Some of these beaches can be reached by walking on the age-old pathways that lead you past the "macchia", the green spruces and olive tree trunks, while being accompanied by the scents of rosemary, thyme and mint.

 

 BAIA SISTIANA 

 

 

Looking for a relaxing day at the beach where children can be entertained with plenty of activities and play safely in shallow water?

Sistiana Bay is the best  beach resort in Trieste.

 

 

Developed during Trieste's great days at the end of the nineteenth century, comes to life in summer, when all Trieste seems to come here to chat, play cards, sunbath and swim.The water is very clean. Just short of the resort,  is the Rilke's Promenade.Leading magazines inserted the coast near Sistiana among the most clean and wonderful beaches of the year.

There are two beautiful pebbly beaches in the bay, Caravella beach, backed by a steep mountain, and Carstelreggio.The beaches of this area are very frequented. You'll find it hard to tear yourself away.Right on the beach there is a diving center, fruit and ice-cream stands, coffee bar and a beach restaurant. 
If you are not a fan of crowds, hustle and bustle, the area south of Sistiana have many other spots & secluded areas for a swim. 

 To find more privacy and less people you can also walk south or rent a kayak for a perfect romantic day exploring little coves and surely you will discover the perfect place for you. Extraordinary scenery, Mediterranean scents and surreal beauty of water and sky color, will soon make you forget about the time. In the well-indented coastal area with a number of small bays, hidden within dense vegetation, you will often come across naturists. Although the beaches are not specified as naturist, many people choose to enjoy the sea and the sun in this way.

The picturesque coastline consists of two miles of rock, sand and pebble beaches, including some romantic coves.After a romantic day at the beach, treat yourself with a romantic dinner in one of Sistiana's's restaurants.

 Sistiana Cava Casali 

 Clothing Optional - FKK 

 

 

A resort or beach that is Clothing Optional means that you can be dressed or nude  - your choice. Many first timers prefer Clothing Optional locations because it gives them a chance to "ease" out of their clothes.

Nude beaches, clothing optional travel and nude recreation have exploded in popularity over the last 5 years.

To the South of Sistiana Bay there are so called free beaches which are known to be naturist for many years, but not officially. Those places are mostly clothing optional.

This clothing optional coastline can be found about 500 mts. south Sistiana Bay.

Sistiana is a quarter-hour drive from Central Trieste, 13 km straight up the coastline toward Duino and the Airport, taking you through Barcola, Grignano and the Castle of Miramare along the way.

The beaches in the Bay,  close to the parking lots, are textile beaches (Caravella and Castelreggio).

A 3-minute hike through the cliffside scenery to the left of Beach Restaurant Castelreggio leads you to the clothing optional beaches, which are situated on  small tidal coves.

 

 

Crystal clear waters and a tolerant, relaxed atmosphere with both nude and swimsuited folks.

Isolated beaches are surrounded by high shrubs, craggy rocks and driftwood.
Beyond the beaches, flat rocky cliffs extend for a few kilometers.

It is very easy to traverse these outcrops, which are also clothing optional.

 

 

Lots of secluded spots behind rocks for some "outdoor fun," too.

Those who are there for several hours may alternate between nudity and swimsuits as the spirit moves them and it's no big deal.

Unlike some "familiar" nude beaches, this Coast promotes a freewheeling and indulgent naturist experience for  singles and couples. No families or children here.

You can sit on these cliffs with the ocean surging just meters below.

On the right day, the waves crash like thunderclaps and white foam and spray lift high in the air.

 If you do not enjoy the heat of the beach, you can nestle beneath large stones to escape the breeze and find any degree of privacy you might prefer.

You can only hear the sounds of nature and some quiet friendly maritime conversation, and on occasion you can see dolphins from the peak of these rocks.

 

 COSTA DEI BARBARI (SISTIANA)

 Clothing Optional / FKK


This beach is not easy to find and the path that leads to it is steep and hard to climb.To reach this place, look for a path that goes down towards the sea along the state road, between the entrance to the motorway and the delightful village of Sistiana, about 15 minutes by car from the Trieste city centre. Nonetheless, it is well worth it when you get there, as this is one of the most enchanting and extraordinary unattended beaches in the region.

As an alternative you can walk from Sistiana Bay. 

You have to hike about 2 km  to get to the largest beach, but upon arrival, wow ! Costa dei barbari is great if you want a friendly, non-threatening clothing-optional environment. Aqua blue waters, Completely natural setting. Most everyone is nude and  man is again one with nature. Paradise! The  beach is sheltered at both ends by the curve of the shoreline and by large rock precipices.

 This is truly a corner of paradise, which  has phenomenal blue, clean water.  Protected by a breathtaking coastal rock, a part of this beach is given over to nude sunbathing.  There are no facilities such as a bar or drinking water in the area. 

Lots of people come over here for sunbathing and swimming during the summer.

A Nude or Nudist facility or beach usually means that you are expected to be out of your clothes completely in the designated areas.

The Mediterranean is warm here and a refreshing dip to escape the sun is as typical as a leisurely soak.

On  Costa dei Barbari, you should cast away all of your clothes. Rocky beaches absolutely untouched with cliffs vertically on the sea in one side and pebbles on the other side.   Clear clean water and quiet coves attract all those seeking for some peace and privacy, loneliness and skinny dipping. There are some pebbly beaches suitable for swimming, but mostly it is rocky coastline with flat rocks which are so inviting for sunning and daydreaming.

 

 ZOPPOLI (TS)

 

The Sentiero dei pescatori leads down from here towards the sea and crosses the railway platforms that link Udine with Trieste (obviously be careful when you cross the track). After the station, the descent continues in the midst of lots of vegetation and has a beautiful view over the Istrian coast to the Grado lagoon. Cross over the coast road and you will eventually arrive at the little  Zoppoli beach after passing through lots of narrow terraces and grapevines. There are lots of steps, but the sunset over the sea will make your effort seem worth it. There is also a small restaurant where you can refuel with a plate of spaghetti and clams, or fried squid, before climbing all the way back up again.

 

 GINESTRE (TS)

 

 

Entrance to the beach is charged 5 Euros per person. The beach is long about a mile or so. Mostly it is a rocky beach with made platforms for sunbathing, and there are also two or three small pebbly coves. Above the beach you can find a spot under the trees with lots of shade. There are showers on the beach, bocce court, two restaurants, sort of a beach bar and altogether it is a nice and well maintained beach which I can highly recommend it to anyone. Water is very clean.

 

BELLARIVA (TS)

 
 

It's a quiet rocky and pebbles beach, with easy access to the sea. No crowd even in August, and mostly families and couples.



Long, gravel beach with pebble parts. Easy access if you have a car.No shade as well. So it sometimes gets unbearably hot and people usually bring sunshades/awnings in July and August.


 

 

 

FILTRI (TS)

FKK - Nude - Naturiste

 

From Trieste go on the Statal Road number 14 and follow the sign for "Laboratorio di Biologia Marina".  Park your car on the road that goes to the laboratory (via A.Piccard), a few hundred meters before reaching it, and go down the stairs that lead to the textile beach (Restaurant Bellariva). Passed the little harbour, that is on your right, follow the path that goes through a wood. After 200 meters there is another beach. Stop when you see nude people. Bring with you shoes for swimming and an air-bed to lay down on the beach.

 

 

  LIBURNIA (TS)

FKK - Nudist - Naturiste - Nacktbaden 

 

These familiar nude beaches are full of a mixed group of people, ranging from families with children to couples.

On any given weekend there are hundreds of people, so get there early and bring suntan lotion.

 As a familiar nude beach, overt public sex is definitely frowned upon, but in-ocean cuddling and kissing is  tolerated.

 

From Sistiana take the coastal road for Trieste, passed the highway park your car in the layby placed 150 meters before the gallery. Follow the path that goes down the cliff: it begins with iron stairs. Once you are on the beach turn left and stop when you see nude people. Bring with you shoes for swimming and an air-bed to lay down on the beach.

 

 GRIGNANO (TS)

 

The Grignano Bay near the  MIRAMARE castle it's the preferred beach resort of the people from Trieste and surroundings.

During summer, from the seashore of Trieste, on the Pescheria dock, you can board on a boat of the Trieste Trasporti company (the service is active from 15th april to 15th October) that will bring you to Barcola or Grignano, where you can visit the Miramare castle. You can drive there by bus, with the line n.6 or 36, but by sea is quite a different experience.

Great for swimming, sand on the ground, there's also swimming pools with sea-water.

 

You can reach this resort from Trieste's harbor by boat in half of an hour, or  catching a bus in 15 mns. line 36. 

 

  

    MIRAMARE (TS)

This bathing establishment boasts some of the cleanest water on the Giulian coast thanks to a favourable combination of sea currents. It's only a stone's throw from the romantic but tragic Castello di Miramare which was the residence of Maximilian and Carlotta Hapsburg. The beach is not sandy. 

 

 The panorama is breathtaking and the place is absolutely peaceful, indeed so much so that it is the destination for many families and mothers with their babies. There is a well stocked bar and can provide breakfast and lunch or light snacks. It is possible to hire sun beds, loungers and have a hot shower at the end of the day.  There is a large changing room. 

The only thing that is missing really is the parking. It's a good idea to come by bus because you really need a miracle to find a parking space (unless you come at dawn). The establishment is open every day from 8a-7p (from the first of May to 30th September). It is not equipped for disabled customers.


 

      LIDO DI JESOLO (VE)

 

 

The beach: 15 kilometers of surprises

Jesolo's long, long beach is a fireworks display of fun that has sports activities, tournaments and competitions of every kind for folks of every age. And an endless series of refreshment stands, bars and restaurants along the beach provides food and drink to thousands of suntan buffs and people who just can't get enough of the sun and the sea.

As is to be expected, marine sports are the most important sporting activities at Jesolo. There are so many it's hard to chose. You can either practice your favorite sport, or try something new with the aid of expert instructors in swimming, diving, windsurfing, sailboating and water skiing. And you can rent all the equipment you need. There's also sea scooting, paraflying and deep-sea fishing, as well as docking facilities with the latest equipment for those who like to go boating.
Practising sports is very pleasant and healthy on the beach, where courses in regular and light exercise are held for people of all ages. You can play beach volley and beach rugby, and there are games and contests for young and old alike.

 

 

 

Parents and children together on holiday. Jesolo makes people forget the duties of everyday life in an atmosphere of joy through the various offers and ideas. A great amusement water park. Funny soft rubber games. Funfair with attractions to suit all tastes. And still more hundreds of shops open late at night. In Jesolo you find everything and far more than everything, but at the same time strictly respectful of peace and privacy.

At Jesolo, the word "discoteque" is an understatement. Here, new trends in night life are created and then spread to become musts in Italy and abroad. Every night, numerous night spots compete to offer the most original and chic sensations, sounds, colours and shows. Music and rhythms from all over the world are continually hosted at Jesolo and great surprises are expected this year, too.

 

 

 

     TRIESTE 

 

 

AUSONIA

Among the oldest of Treste's spa centres, L'Ausonia is divided into two: the first is almost completely in wood, very characteristic and the atmosphere is quite unique. The second is more modern, made in cement with a 50m swimming pool, with sea water. Not far from the city gates, right at the end of the shore, (20 mins by foot from the piazza dell'Unita d'Italia towards Muggia) the centre is one of the most popular during the week, especially by families, but also by young and old alike) because of its handy location and many facilities: bar, children's games, newspaper stand, open spaces, free parking. But l'Ausonia is also the only establishment in Triest with a solarium or rather a place where you can sunbathe. In summer the waterpolo teams also train here. You pay on the door to get in and the centre is open from April to October every day from 8a-7p. Access for the disabled.
 

LANTERNA

Near the city centre, this is the only beach in Europe where there is a barrier separating an area reserved for women and children from an area reserved for men. This is considered a piece of history, and is like a monument. Apart from this detail, there are no special facilities here, yet hundreds of people come here daily after the office or for a relaxing day out. The entrance fee is extremely cheap and there is a peaceful atmosphere, as well as equipment to facilitate disabled access into the sea. It is open from the first June to 30th September every day from 6a to 8p.
