There are so many things to do here in Bibione

Under skies of all kinds, I come and go every season thanks to the strong Bora wind, the warm Sirocco and the gentle morning breeze. I touch the sand, get it wet and then head straight back into the sea.

On my endless journey, I see the world flow by. I watch the sunrise and the sunset, which are my favourite times of day. The sun shines on me with its golden rays. I bask in the silver light of the full moon.

I am familiar with numerous places because my “work” – if we can call it that – knows no boundaries. I travel up, down and all around the arm of the Northern Mediterranean that is known as the Adriatic Sea. I exchange messages, advice and opinions with my co-workers.

When I get asked about Bibione, I find it hard to be impartial. What can I say? I’m a big fan. I’ve known this island for such a long time, I can remember when there was nothing here but the beach, sand dunes, lagoons and a few fishermen’s huts. The wild, natural side has never gone away. It lives on and thrives, but you have to seek it out by venturing beyond the beach umbrellas, hotels, apartments, shopping streets and restaurants.

It sometimes winds me up when people say there isn’t much to do here. Nothing could be further from the truth. There’s much more on offer in Bibione than traditional beach holidays and spending all your time on a sun lounger under an umbrella.

In the early morning sunshine, I see people running and walking towards the lighthouse and all along the seafront, as far as Porto Baseleghe. They enjoy all of the benefits that I have to offer when they breathe in the sea air and quietly admire the unadulterated beauty all around them.

During the day, I watch all kinds of sport. People play volleyball, do workouts to stay in shape, go out surfing among the waves, and dive in for a swim.

In the evening I listen to music during concerts on the beach. It puts a big smile on my face when I see people dancing and holding hands with their loved ones.

When darkness falls, I look at the moon or the meteor showers of August nights. Solitary anglers patiently wait for bites, while couples share secrets or make plans for the following day. What could be more delightful than a boat trip around the lagoon behind the beach, or all of the way to Caorle and Venice? Or you could go for a bike ride on the countless roads and paths in the picturesque countryside of this frontier land, which lies between the salt water of the lagoon and the fresh water in the rivers.

There are so many things to do here in Bibione! I’ve got a whole host of secrets to tell you. Come down to the shore with bare feet first thing in the morning and listen quietly. A wave can reveal endless wonders and show you the way to make every moment an exceptional experience.
