From May to September the town's colours gleam in the sunshine of the Adriatic Coast. Strategically located in the middle of the Adriatic Riviera, you can quickly reach world famous cities of art such as Ravenna, Venice, Urbino and Florence. Today, nearby Rimini is the capital of fun, yet is also a historically important town rich in Roman and Renaissance treasures. The lovely beaches, excellent food, green parks, countless cultural events and shows make it the perfect place for carefree fun.

One of the Adriatic's most beautiful beaches runs along a stretch of sea which has often won the Blue Flag award. This golden carpet is perfect for sunbathing, sport, group activities and playing with your little ones, all while recharging your mental and physical batteries. The smooth sea floor slopes gently and is well attended by lifeguards.

For those who want more than a sunbed under a beach umbrella, you can enjoy aerobics, aqua-gym, Latin dance and more on the beach, having fun and keeping fit. In the shade of the many beach kiosks' verandas, you can have breakfast, ice cream, cool drinks or meet for tea or happy hour. On the public beach, Polo Est, every summer beach Olympics are held, the Riviera Beach Games, where all kinds of sports are played beach style in a fantastic mix of competition and fun.

For nature lovers, Bellaria Igea Marina has many trails and 10 km of cycle paths along the river all the way to nearby San Mauro Pascoli. The Gelso Park, with 25 hectares of Mediterranean maquis and trees, is the town's green haven. There's also Lake Gelso and the “Butterfly Garden” to visit during your stay.

The Casa Rossa, once the home of the novelist Alfredo Panzini, nowadays is a literary museum and an important venue for the town's cultural events. Some interesting ones are "Wednesdays at Alfredo's House", the Accademia Panziniana's initiatives, and literary meetings called "Sotto Sale parole a lunga conservazione". There's also the Bellaria Film Festival. Originally founded by the Azienda di Soggiorno under the name of "Cinema Preview", it is dedicated to Italian and European independent films with limited budgets but abundant in ideas and new talent. Cultural events also include photography and painting exhibits, events based on traditional arts and crafts, and the theatre. Teatro Astra's season runs from December to February every year.
