Bibione is a resort that never loses its charm and is hard to absorb in the space of just one holiday. The territory is the result of a magical encounter between the salt waters of the Adriatic sea and the fresh waters of the Tagliamento river and whose name is derived from the ancient Roman “Insulae Bibioni” indicating the islands connected to the lagoon by a narrow strip of land. Bibione was linked in the past to nearby Venice, then to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Kingdom of Italy while its more recent history started in the 1950s when it opened up to tourism with the distinct mark of quality and respect for nature.
Emotions and one-of-a-kind experiences, for everyone.
The special geographic, environmental and tourist characteristics of Bibione make it both unique and captivating, capable of meeting everybody’s needs: from those who want relaxation and fun to those who want to get fit and healthy again, to those who want to immerse themselves in unspoilt nature or explore the historical remains inland. In Bibione, your personal horizons are widened, your whims are pandered to, the quality of your life is enhanced: whatever the season or your age, with a wide range of opportunities that are added to and renewed every year.
Top quality tourism.
The Associazione Bibionese Albergatori - ABA – (Bibione Hoteliers’ Association) in Bibione has always been among the top performers in the tourist accommodation trade and, since 2014, it has been the first association to offer an optional insurance policy to guarantee hotel guests peace of mind during their stay with protection against unexpected problems. In addition they can also choose between different Club di Prodotto (Product Clubs) aimed at specific types of tourists: from families to mountain bike, walking or golf enthusiasts to animal lovers and anyone who wants to access treatment at the Spa in Bibione.
Naturally welcoming and dynamic.
Bibione has got something for everyone and dedicates a special space to every single person: its golden beaches which are easy to access, equipped with the most up-to-date facilities and services, with free entertainment activities and certified bathing waters with a gently sloping seabed that is ideal for children and the elderly. Thanks to Sabbiodotto, a conceptually innovative project, but in keeping with the natural surroundings, the beach in Bibione will be protected from erosion by the sea, thus safeguarding one of the main tourist and naturalistic treasures of this resort: the “sabbia doc” (sand with controlled designation of origin), that is, 100% locally sourced.
The network of cycling paths is being gradually extended into the beach and natural area with over 50 km of totally safe cycling which means you can discover Bibione, the 5 Acque and the inland area, thanks also to a new section that goes from Piazzale Zenith as far as the spiaggia del Faro (lighthouse beach) at the mouth of the Tagliamento river, one of the symbols of this resort surrounded by a wonderful natural reserve.
The sporting facilities are also being renewed in Bibione which, in addition to proposing lots of activities on the beach and on the sea, from beach volley ball to beach tennis, from swimming to sailing, from windsurf to kayaking, from Nordic walking to horse-riding, with entertainers for adults and children, also offers the opportunity to explore the seabed at Bibione, another unspoilt, protected environment with guided scuba diving expeditions.
Health and wellbeing at the Bibione Thermae.
The offering of the Bibione Thermae (Bibione spa) is also constantly evolving where the spa waters that well up not far from the beach, at a temperature of 50° C, are used for hydrotherapy treatment which is certified by the Ministry of Health, as well as mud therapy, hydro-kinesitherapy, deep massage, and rehabilitation procedures for all ages: above all for children for whom special treatments are reserved. The treatments of the Bibione Thermae are subsidised by the Italian National Health Service and also offer European Community citizens the opportunity to access reimbursements for medical expenses in line with European Directive 24/2011. There is also a SPA and a Wellness centre which offer wellness, beauty and physical fitness treatments: from saunas, to Turkish baths, sensations showers and massages, as well as the indoor pool by the beach.
Lots to discover and enjoy.
In step with the new shopping, fashion, and food and drink trends, there are shops, restaurants and bars where you can taste local traditional cooking or enjoy a sophisticated, exhilarating evening out. Alongside this, there is an irresistible offer dedicated to fun for all ages with the educational-play parks, including the memorable Luna Park Adriatico which is considered one of the best in Italy.
The cultural offering inland is also very comprehensive from the Roman and medieval archaeological artefacts of Concordia Sagittaria, to the little churches, villas and abbeys along the Strada del Vino (Wine Road), to the Renaissance buildings of Portogruaro, the hamlet of Cordovado, one of the most beautiful in Italy, and the Palio Storico (historic horse race) which is always held on the first Sunday in September.
