Boat and Kayak
Lignano Sabbiadoro does not just offer simple kayaking: enjoy an unforgettable experience immersed in the nature of the Marano Lagoon and the mouth of the Stella River
Kayaking in Lignano Sabbiadoro is easy above all because it is an activity for everyone, even those trying a kayak for the first time. The city has numerous sailing, windsurfing and stand up paddle schools along the coast that offer kayaks and paddles for hire.
Spending an hour or more off the shores of Lignano Sabbiadoro while paddling in the sun is a pleasant way to spend a relaxing day on the beach, even more so if you reach the Red Lighthouse of Sabbiadoro, the Pagoda Bar of Pineta or the mouth of the Tagliamento River.
Kayaks are also perfect for those seeking total immersion in nature: kayaks are completely eco-friendly and let you discover a less-known side of Lignano Sabbiadoro, that of the Marano Lagoon and the mouth of the Stella River, paddling among waterfowl in their natural habitat and discovering traditional huts.
Kayak Experience is an organised tour that includes a boat ride from Lignano Sabbiadoro to Bilancia di Bepi, an old lagoon hut with its own mechanically-operated fishing net traditionally used to fish in the lagoon. Once you reach Bilancia di Bepi you leave the boat behind for kayaks, to then meander among the reeds and placid waters of the Stella River Nature Reserve.
After providing brief instructions on kayaking, the excursions are led by the owner of Bilancia di Bepi, Daniele, who has extensive knowledge of the local flora and fauna. He will guide you through the maze of reeds, including a stop at a typical lagoon hut.
