Beach holidays in Rimini


Rimini is a popular beach resort on Italy’s east coast, close to Riccione. The destination boasts not only beautiful beaches for relaxing on, but also lots of sights to explore and places to take excursions to for a well-rounded holiday.

The area is particularly suitable for families, even though the nightlife can get boisterous, thanks to the theme parks and clean beaches both in Rimini and in the wider region.

These are some of the main destinations in and around Rimini:



The 15 km beach in Rimini is an attraction all by itself, but the town is also famous for its lively nightlife and historical attractions. The central beachfront around Marina Centro and Lungomare Augustore is where you’ll find most of the bars and clubs, although there are larger clubs in the hills west of Rimini. Beach activities include sailing, diving, tennis and volleyball.

If you want a change from sunbathing, Rimini has several other attractions and activities of note, especially in terms of its historical sights. These include the Tempio Malatestiano cathedral, which dates back to the Middle Ages, and the Roman ruins of Arco di Augusto. The Piazza Cavour square is a great place to watch the world go by, while the Malatesta Temple is worth visiting if you have an interest in Italian Renaissance architecture. The City Museum is ideal for art lovers.

For families, the Fiabilandia theme park, Italia in Miniatura (scale models of major attractions in Italy) and the dolphinarium are sure to keep the kids entertained. If festivals appeal, be sure to head to Bellariva for events like Clamfest and the Sangiovese Festival, while there are several spas to relax in around Rimini.


Riccione and Cattolica

Neighbouring Riccione offers a similar beach holiday experience to Rimini in terms of activities and nightlife. The Acquafan park is another family-friendly attraction to consider if you’re going on holiday with the kids.

Cattolica is perhaps best known for its massive aquarium (another attraction perfect for children) and historical sights such as the Church of San Apollinare and the Malatesta Tower.
