Sports and outdoor activities

Pietrasanta is mainly known for the sea and its five kilometers of beach, which offer relaxation and sunbathing and is also an enchanting and immense natural gym.

Sport

Here all kinds of water sports are practiced, you can swim in the sea in complete safety, paddle offshore (in the sea) or in the nearby lake of Massaciuccoli, go water skiing, play beach volleyball, practice sailing, surfing and windsurfing.

Courses and private lessons are offered by qualified personnel.

Mainly in summer, when the sun goes down, when an even more suggestive atmosphere is created, the time is ideal to participate in yoga or pilates classes, always strictly on the beach.

 

The shady pine forests close to the beach are well suited for long walks; here there are also paths equipped for gymnastic exercises and riding stables for horse riding.

 

The area is also suitable for cycling tours and also due to the many uphill roads, it represents an excellent challenge for more experienced cyclists.

Thanks to the Apuan Alps, the unmistakable background of our coast, it is possible to enjoy outdoor activities in the mountains.

In fact, the upper Versilia offers peaks that have nothing to envy to other far more famous ones: imagine the wonder of reaching the top and admiring the sea from above.

It is possible to go trekking on the numerous CAI paths that lead to wonderful landscapes and once you have reached the peaks your effort will be rewarded by breathtaking views.

The Apuan Alps are also rich in streams that allow various canyoning activities, or the descent along them with the help of specially positioned ropes.

 

If you are a golf lover, than you will find beautiful fields on which you can show off your swing. If, on the other hand, tennis is your passion, you will have a wide choice among a variety of clubs, where you will find the beloved clay for a challenge between friends, or, why not, to participate in a tournament.
