  • Info: Live streaming beach webcam at Sottomarina di Chioggia. Sottomarina is a beach suburb of the historic fishing port of Chioggia, situated on the Adriatic Sea coast.

More info: The beach at Sottomarina runs for 10 km and reaches up to 300 m deep, though its real characteristic feature is the mineral composition of the sand: augite, quartz, silicate and mica. This combination, together with the light breeze which regularly passes over the sands, permits a rapid and long-lasting tan, as well as possessing curative properties.

The nearby town of Chioggia is situated on a small island and often described as a ‘Venice in miniature’, Chioggia is a mediaeval maze of narrow lanes ending abruptly in canals or waterfront promenades. The town was formerly famed for the traditional lacemaking skills of its women but today it survives mainly on fishing and tourism.

Between Sottomarina and Chioggia, just one kilometre away, there is a sea inlet and the two cities are connected by a long bridge.
