Beaches in Venice: Blue Moon

It’s a beautiful surprise that the month of April this year is marked by springlike temperatures, and what’s better than a walk and an aperitivo on the beach to enjoy the sun? In case you decided to spend only a few days in Venice and the beaches Alberoni and Baccan seem too far away to you, you don’t have to worry as there’s another free beach (means without admission fee or the obligation to rent a sunbed): the Blue Moon.

The Lido always seems very “un-venetian” to me: The countless canals, bridges, gondole, vaporetti (water bus) and calli, that mark the historic city center make room for green alleys, streets, cars and bicycles. For me the Lido represents the kind of „city“ that Mestre (on the mainland) should … or could … be like.

So guys grab your beach towels, some drinks and snacks and follow me to the most famous beach in Venice!

Arrived at the landing stage S.M. Elisabetta we just continue straight ahead and follow the main street (which is also called S.M. Elisabetta) passing countless restaurants, gelaterie, tiny shops, supermarkets and the world famous art deco hotel Ausonia & Hungaria till we reach the other end of the street. (About 10/15 minutes by foot.)

There we find the entrance to the Blue Moon (that’s also a party location on the week end) recognizable due to its white spiral staircase. Now we only have to cross a last passage to have a first look on the most famous beach in Venice.
