NOT JUST A BEACH
Caorle : the small Venice
Caorle is a city to be discovered: wide beach and quiet sea, but also history, art, fishing, traditions, nature and food and wine.
The beach of your holidays
Caorle beach is a golden sandy beach of 1700 m long. to Levante and 1200 m. to West and wide from 80 to 300 meters. For its vastness, for the seabed that slopes gently towards the water making it safe for children and for the great offer of services, over 600,000 tourists choose the beach of Caorle each year for their beach holidays recording over 4 million annual attendance, and for many years has been awarded prestigious awards such as the Blue Flag and the Green Flag.
A miniature Venice
With its streets and squares and brightly colored houses, Caorle is a miniature Venice. The Cathedral, the cylindrical bell tower, both of the eleventh century, and the Sanctuary of the Madonna dell’Angelo, on a promontory on the sea, are the elements that characterize Caorle, City that for years has followed the fate of the Serenissima, without ever losing , however, its traditions linked, naturally, to the world of fishing.
First in the lagoon and then in the sea, the caorlotti, in fact, have always lived by fishing and the fleet is still numerous that still performs this activity and that you can get to work in the quaint marina and at the adjacent Fish Market.
Caorle lagoon: uncontaminated nature
And when we talk about fishermen we can not speak of a lagoon, a protected naturalistic area, a Site of Community Interest, much loved even by the American writer Ernest Hemingway, where even today you can admire the “casoni”, typical buildings in wood and reed.
