The beaches of Follonica are among the most popular in the Maremma, in Tuscany. Located in the homonymous seaside resort, they are famous for being suitable for families with children thanks to its shallow and sloping seabed for several meters from the shore. This charming town has in fact repeatedly won the prestigious Green Flag which is assigned by the Italian Paediatricians Association to beaches suitable for children. Among the criteria for choosing the winning beaches there are, in addition to the cleanliness and physical conformation of the beach, also the services offered to families with children and the spaces dedicated to the smallest of the house. show more

Walking along the Follonica seafront it is easy to understand why; not only does this town of the Maremma have a clean and rich in services but there is also a special attention to the environment and a deep respect for it. The shores of the beaches of Follonica are narrow and long, composed of fine golden sand and protected by breakwater cliffs that have the task of mitigating the erosive action of the sea which holds miles of Italian coastline every year. On the beach you will find numerous bathing establishments where you can rent beach chairs, umbrellas, sunbeds and water sports equipment; for the lovers of these last ones: we point out the presence of a Nautical Club where courses are held for beginners and regattas and competitions are regularly organized at national level. There are also large stretches of free beach on the whole coast and on average crowded in the summer months. The follonichesi beaches attract thousands of tourists from all over the world every year, especially the Swiss and Germans who choose the Maremma town as a destination for their summer holidays. The accommodation offer is vast and suitable for every pocket, in the immediate vicinity of the beach there are: hotels, b & b, airbnb, campsites, tourist villages, residences and pensions. The comfort of this quiet seaside resort is that it has developed on the coast and a long cycle path separates the beach from the town. There are also two large pine forests ( Pineta di Ponente and Pineta di Levante ) where you can rest during the hottest hours of the day and are equipped with benches and play areas for children such as miniature golf, castles, inflatables, slides, swings and games for the little ones. Even the very young will find numerous entertainments and entertainment suited to their needs, such as beach volleyball courts or clubs and discos that enliven the folloniches evenings and attract kids from all over Tuscany.

  4. Review of Fiorenza Fiorenza 5.0/5 IT, 9 August 2019

    La spiaggia è bella e in tutta onestà non so dove Laura vada in spiaggia, personalmente ci vado molto presto e non ci sono ombrelloni… comunque il posto merita tanto. Venite a trovarci con un sorriso e con la voglia di relax

  5. Review of Laura Laura 4.3/5 IT, 5 August 2019

    Peccato che i maleducati lasciano gli ombrelloni sulla spiaggia

  6. Review of Anita Anita 4.7/5 IT, 23 June 2017

    Ci sono molte spiagge libere facilmente accessibili e in qualcuna è possibile portare il proprio cane. In alcuni punti del litorale è difficile trovare parcheggio, nel complesso è un’ottima località balneare.
