The popular resort of Bibione comes alive during the holiday season. With only 3,000 inhabitants and over 100,000 places to stay for holidaymakers, Bibione is very quiet out of season.

Depending on your personal preferences, you can spend your holidays in Bibione very individually, as the lively resort offers suitable opportunities for every type of holiday.

Bibione – pure beach fun

Bibione’s 11-kilometre-long sandy beach offers plenty of space to sunbathe and relax, and at the same time there is plenty of space for sporting activities and for children who want to enjoy their stay on the family-friendly beach while playing and romping. Depending on the stretch of beach, there are also entertainment programmes for children and adults, so you are guaranteed not to get bored. While the beach at Bibione Spiaggia is ideal for families and offers a very good infrastructure and many sports and leisure facilities, the beach at Lido del Sole is much quieter and invites you to relax.

Sights and attractions in and around Bibione

As a touristic place, Bibione itself offers only a few sights. However, if you are exploring the town, it is worth stopping at the Chiesa Santa Maria Assunta. Also worth seeing is the historic lighthouse of Bibione, which can be found directly at the mouth of the Tagliamento and is surrounded by a nature reserve and is a nice destination for a short hike. A very nice way to explore Bibione and the surrounding area is to take a bike ride, because the inner-city cycle path leads to the most beautiful places in Bibione and runs from east to west along the seafront. On this occasion, it is worth visiting the historic fishermen’s huts.
