The Tuscan Coast

In the annual `beach charts’ Tuscany triumphs. The region is recognised as having a superbly clean coastline, second only to Liguria’s. The beaches score highly for cleanliness of the water, safety, quietness, eco-friendliness and sustainability. Beaches are rated according to the trustworthy Blue Flags system. The sheer number of accredited beaches in Tuscany confirms the wisdom of opting for a beach break here. Not that it will ever be `just’ a beach break. What’s brilliant about the Tuscan coast is the proximity of beguiling art cities, hilltop towns and Etruscan sites. Yet given the length of the coastline and the competing claims presented by the cities of art in the hinterland, it’s best to decide on a couple of connecting coastal areas and to explore around there. Combine a villa-holiday near Viareggio with forays to Lucca and Pisa. Or, say, combine the beach at Castiglione della Pescaia with hiking in the Maremma.
