Grado, an esteemed coastal destination since the late 19th century, boasts a unique microclimate that ensures a perpetual abundance of sunshine, coupled with pristine waters and shallow depths. These qualities make it an ideal and easily accessible choice for families seeking a safe and enjoyable holiday with their children. The Island of Grado, one of the oldest tourist spots in the Upper Adriatic region, boasts a remarkable 10 km stretch of south-facing sandy beaches, renowned for their fine texture. This beachfront has proudly flown the Blue Flag, a national accolade, for 33 consecutive years. Additionally, it has been awarded the Green Flag, endorsed by European pediatricians, for the past 11 years. Divided into four distinct sections (Grado Pineta, Spiaggia al Bosco, GIT, and Costa Azzurra), the expansive 120,000 square meters of sandy shoreline cater to the diverse preferences of guests. These areas offer a range of tailored amenities, allowing visitors to customize their holiday experience. Exclusive VIP zones featuring spacious gazebos, designated areas for families and children with entertainment and play facilities, dog-friendly beaches, as well as bars and restaurants for refreshments, complement the diverse water and beach sports activities. Cultural events and musical evenings further enhance the ambiance, ensuring a vacation that is both family-friendly and conducive to relaxation and tranquility, free from the burdens of everyday life.
