Le Marche among The Most Photogenic Beaches Around The World by expert travelbloggers

Le Marche among The Most Photogenic Beaches Around The World by expert travelbloggers | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Coastal landscapes have a way of drawing photographers to their shores. Whether it’s their crystal white sands, alluring clear waters, rugged rock formations or people watching potential. Beaches can be considered photogenic for a number of reasons, and they’re often different for everyone. Some will see a shining gem worth a thousand photos while others …

VALLUGOLA BEACH, LE MARCHE, ITALY

Katie McKnoulty of The Travelling Light

Vallugola beach is a local's secret in the decidedly un-touristy region of Le Marche. In summer it teems with Italians on their summer holiday or locals escaping the heat with a dip. The beach is covered in big white pebbles and marble rocks line the shore. you can catch local nonnos and nonnas basking in the
sun or cooling off in the clear, blue water. Come during the day with your camera, late afternoon for softer lighting, to capture all the local characters sunbathing under big orange umbrellas and the sail boats floating by. There’s two amazing seafood restaurants right on the beach for an afternoon meal or aperol spritz.

The coastline of Italy: Fishermen’s caves at Monte Conero, Marche, among the readers’ travel tips by theguardian

The coastline of Italy: Fishermen’s caves at Monte Conero, Marche, among the readers’ travel tips by theguardian | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Quaint towns such as Numana and Sirolo cling to the hillside, and the expansive beach at Mezzavalle di Portonovo is well worth the 15-minute trek when visiting the beautiful Conero peninsula. Last year we discovered a path to the rocks where fishermen’s caves are hewn into the cliff – most are abandoned but some have been reclaimed by boating aficionados. Scramble along the shore, chat with the locals and watch them dive from the rocks into the crystal-clear pools.

Le Marche is the 2nd Region in Italy for Cleanest Beaches

Le Marche is the 2nd Region in Italy for Cleanest Beaches | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The award, the Blue Flag, is given annually to beaches and marinas that satisfy a number of essential criteria covering aspects of:

  • Water Quality
  • Environmental Education and Information
  • Environmental Management
  • Safety and Services

The international Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) reported that has risen this year the number of Italian beaches to be awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award for clean water and pristine sands.

Italian seaside resorts awarded a Blue Flag in 2013 were 135, four more than last year, for a total of 248 top beaches. Some 86% of last year's Blue Flag beaches were confirmed this year while nine new entries included resorts in Carrara, Tuscany, Francavilla al Mare in Abruzzo and a lake beach resort in Levico Terme, in the north-eastern Trentino-Alto Adige region. The northwest coastal region of Liguria has the cleanest beaches in Italy, 20, two more than last year, followed by the central Marche region with 18 and Tuscany with 17, one more than last year.

Pristine eco friendly beaches could be considered another reason to visit lovely Le Marche.
