A Guide To The Best Surf Spots In Italy

For those of us with a love for all things surf, finding the right surfing destination around the world to suit your style and preference can be difficult.

However, in Italy, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to amazing surfing locations that offer something unique for every skill set and taste. So, while you get ready to grab the wetsuits and get on the next flight, we are going to show you a list of some of the best surf spots in Italy.

Tuscany

When looking for surf in Italy, regardless of the level of surfing experience that you have, you have to visit Maremma in Tuscany. This picturesque coastline not only has one of the best weather systems for surfing, but its sheer length means that you can pick a beach that suits your every taste and get down to surfing without a heaving crowd. For beginners, this offers you enough room to find your feet, while experienced surfers can enjoy the tranquillity of the warm waters.

Lido Di Ostia, Rome

Home to multiple surf schools dotted across the entire expanse, this spot of Coastline is the ideal place for beginners to catch some waves and spend some well-needed rest and relaxation at a beach just a stone’s throw from Italy’s great capital. Located just outside of Rome, this beach is a favourite for those living within the city and for those visiting, allowing them to enjoy the surf and the amazing weather away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city centre. However, while the surf is certainly worthy of a visit, the water can be dirty and the beaches often become quite crowded during the summer months. Therefore it may be beneficial for you to venture to the public beaches either early in the morning or later into the evening, or simply avoid the height of the season if you are looking for a relaxing surf.

Sicily

Sicily is the ideal destination for those that want to surf amazing beaches and truly unique wave breaks and with plenty to do beyond the beach too, this stunning destination offers the perfect opportunity for a full holiday escape. With key spots such as Agrigento offering breathtaking waves with very few visitors to contend with, you’ll have the experience that you want all to yourself without any hassle. Whether you decide to surf on a longer board or a shorter board you can be sure that the beaches here have it all, with waves offering you a truly exhilarating experience.

Veneto

Veneto is arguably one of the best surfing locations in Italy, with the golden coastline of beaches offering plenty of warm and wonderful waves for everyone regardless of the difficulty level that you are currently comfortable at. However, as with the best of the surf spots in Italy, the experience is completely dependent on the weather conditions. After all, the windier it is, the bigger the swells are. These locations rely very heavily on the weather and this can have a profound effect on the surf that you will find when you visit.

If you’re looking for surfing in Italy, you are certainly spoilt for choice. With some of the most amazing landscapes around and amazing weather conditions to match, you can have hours of fun out on the waves throughout the duration of your trip. Where will you surf first?
