Tuscany`s coastline begins at Bocca di Magra, the mouth of the Magra River and runs almost to the Arno. This coastline is made up of extensive beaches surrounded by high dunes and fresh pinewoods, characterized by clean water (certified blue flag beaches), interesting villages, and a background of the Apuan Alps, known for its famous marble production.
Sun and clear seas as well as fun and fashion can be found in Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio, and culture in Pietrasanta and Camaiore. Pietrasanta is famous for being the land of artists and marble workers, known as Little Athens, whereas Camaiore boasts a wealth of relics from the past. The Pisan coastline offers total relaxation and secluded beaches. Sandy beaches, clear sea and vast Mediterranean pine groves can be found near Marina di Pisa, Tirrenia and Calambrone. Along the Etruscan Coast there are countless corners of paradise: from Antignano to Quercianella and Castiglioncello as well as Vada di Rosignano Marittimo, four very different beaches yet all provide beautiful views of the sea. There are Blue Flag beaches a-plenty at Cecina, Marina di Bibbona, Castagneto Carducci and San Vincenzo as well as the Nature Park of Sterpaia (Piombino), with its sandy dunes in the very heart of nature, complete with pine woods. Another resort worth seeing is Castiglione della Pescaia, with its old town center that dominates the coastline.
