Holidays on the Riviera | Marca Fermana - Family Relaxation
Relax e Famiglia
Parks and purpose built play-ground gardens, family orientated hotels, child friendly camping and tourism villages and spas.
It is not difficult to find the right solution to spend moments of relaxation in the Fermano area. The abundant green spaces, the corners of the beaches away from the crowds and the good local typical cuisine all contribute to giving a pleasant change from the stress of everyday life.
The operative word is “Fun”: the coast is one of the treasures of this territory that, together with the proverbial welcome and the position of the best hotels and multi-facility tourist villages make this area a unique Seaside destination.
About a 25 kilometer stretch of coast: easily reached from the two motorway exits of both Civitanova Marche and Porto San Giorgio, where the ‘lido’ of each location joins up, each with varied, but singularly identifiable characteristics: There is something for everyone and for all tastes, from the pebbly shore of Porto Sant’Elpidio, to the very fine sand of Lido di Fermo and Porto San Giorgio.
The clear and clean waters have been awarded the “Bandiera Blu (Blue Flag) acknowledgement” and reach mild temperatures even in May and the climate is still pleasant during the month of September.
The essence of the true rhythm of the beaches are the numerous beach-chalets; to be found all along the coast and which, even nowadays, the proprietors of which still maintain an agreeable space between one sunshade and another. Besides the classical welcome, many other activities are organized to make both the adults and the children’s stay a fun and pleasant one.
The locations are not however, without areas of ‘free’ beaches where it is possible to go and use your own equipment.
But let’s get on to a more detailed description starting from Porto Sant’Elpidio: after a vast pine-forest where the trees look like sculptures bent in the wind, the north part of the promenade starts with its chalets where some really good fish can be enjoyed.
You can watch the authentic performance in the morning, when the fish-market starts at about 07:30 am; the day’s catch of fish is sold on the stalls of ten or so wooden huts in the central area of the promenade, which is bordered for its whole length by a cycle path, convenient and easy for sporty people, but also for all those who wish to walk in serenity and enjoy the seaside panorama.
Soon this will be connected to the nearby Lido di Fermo which is already joined to Porto San Giorgio. The coastal town is one of the main ports of the Adriatic with its 856 berths. The whole area is the destination of the Fermana “movida” they rendezvous in the many chalets on the beach for a trendy aperitif or a fun evening of dancing on the sand.
Carrying on along the Adriatic ridge, the sandy coast is replaced by pine-woods and secular palm trees, here we find the area populated with the major concentration of tourist villages, very well equipped with a multitude of sports and an excellent 3 km. cycle track which ends up in an enormous play ground.
With Marina Palmense, Marina di Altidona, upto Pedaso we reach the last place on the Fermana coast where the small strips of gravelly beach immerge into a crystalline sea of rich depths.
Every year at all the information offices along the coast you can pick up the Calendar of Events: a practical and easy guide to learn about all the events going on in the “Marca Fermana area” so you can fully enjoy all the new and traditional things that are happening during your stay.
