Horseback riding

The experience

Long horseback rides along the shores of Lignano let you enjoy a new experience in contact with nature.

The naturalistic variety of Lignano Sabbiadoro is clear to those who leave themselves time to discover it calmly and in an eco-sustainable way. In addition to walking and cycling along the many paths that we have traced out in the area, you can explore Lignano on horseback.

Lignano's position between the Marano Lagoon, the mouth of the Tagliamento River and the Adriatic Sea make it the ideal destination for long horseback rides in contact with nature, but also on the beach.

You can go horseback riding in Lignano year-round by turning to specialised equestrian centres and riding schools that offer riding lessons and horseback riding excursions.

Horseback riding on the beach is an experience truly beyond comparison; it is a common dream, as it evokes a sense of unparalleled freedom in the imagination.
Any who spend a day on horseback on the beaches of Lignano with the sound of the waves crashing on the shoreline is given a chance to appreciate the magnificence of nature in a new way, experiencing a new and unexpected holiday in Lignano Sabbiadoro.

Horses are only allowed access to the beach from October to April when the shores are not equipped with facilities for beach-goers.

Windsurfing

The experience

Whoever goes windsurfing in Lignano Sabbiadoro will find everything they need: water, sun and wind.

For ardent windsurfers, Lignano Sabbiadoro can boast the ideal combination of sun, wind and water conditions, a mix that makes it a Windsurfing paradise for both beginners and experts.

Windsurfing is a water sport where you balance on a board, propelled forward by the wind blowing the sail. The skill of a windsurfer – like in sailing – lies in his ability to control the sail and adapt it to the direction of the wind. Unlike sailing, windsurfing  has the added element of balance. In fact, the windsurfer must be able to stand firm on the board as she controls its direction.

Lignano Sabbiadoro, a seaside town situated in north-east Italy, is one of the perfect destinations for windsurfing enthusiasts. In fact, while there aren’t the big waves that pure surfers dream of, the presence of strong winds – like the bora and the scirocco – offer the perfect drive for windsurfing all year around.
But not just weather and sea conditions, the blue water and the soft sand make Lignano Sabbiadoro a highly popular destination for windsurfing, attracting surfers from all over the world.

Going windsurfing in Lignano Sabbiadoro is very easy and accessible to all thanks to the many schools and associations that provide equipment and offer lessons with qualified instructors.

From May to September, windsurfing schools in Lignano are open right on the beach at Sabbiadoro and Pineta with equipment hire (not just for windsurfing but also for sailing, SUP and kayaking), the latest sails and boards, and expert personnel available to give lessons to whoever  wants to take their first steps in this water sport.

Wakeboarding

The experience

An intense and dynamic sport: even those trying it for the first time will exalt jumping and doing tricks in the water while wakeboarding!

Wakeboarding became popular in the US in the late 80s, and basically combines water skiing with snowboarding. Just like parasailing and stand up paddling, it rapidly spread to Italy and has become one of the staple water sports that can be enjoyed on the beaches of Lignano.

Wakeboarding involves holding onto a sling bar and standing on a board similar a snowboard. The wakeboarder is pulled by a motorboat and uses the boat's wake to do jumps and spectacular tricks.

Although it may seem like a challenging sport when you watch it, everyone can actually wakeboard. There are no age limits: the thrill of gliding on the waves is an experience that everyone should try! Moreover, it's so easy to learn that you can heartily enjoy wakeboarding on your first attempt, as it is easy to quickly improve and become practical with the board and sling bar.

Some beach centres organise wakeboarding in Lignano Sabbiadoro, see which ones on the map below.

Sport

Stand up paddle (SUP)

The experience

SUP is halfway between surfing and canoeing. A simple water sport that anyone can do.

SUP (Stand Up Paddle) is a version of surfing where you stand on a board (a long board) and move along using a paddle. This sport has really grown in popularity in recent years all over the world.

Stand Up Paddle began in Polynesia and is very popular in Hawaii. However you don’t need to travel so far away to do it! SUP is also very popular in Lignano Sabbiadoro, with lots of schools along the seashore offering equipment hire, lessons and outings, plus other related events.

Stand Up Paddle is a cross between surfing and canoeing. From the former it takes the characteristic of, standing on a board,  gliding on the water and being able to ride a wave, with all of the techniques and fun of “surfing”. From the latter it borrows the use of the paddle, with all of the techniques and advantages that propulsion system.

SUP is very popular among surfers, windsurfers and kiters, who instead of waiting on the beach for the ideal conditions to practice their sport, like to ride the waves even on days when the wind is down. 

But the strong point of SUP is that anyone can do it, not just athletes and water sports “pros”, at any age and without any special training or requirements.

For those who get restless on the beach, SUP is an excellent alternative precisely because it is easy for everyone no matter what your physical condition, and it is excellent training for your muscles and for balance.

The really incredible thing about this sport is that you can do it on any body of water. Lignano Sabbiadoro, with the Adriatic Sea, the Marano Lagoon, the river Tagliamento and the river Stella, is an ideal spot. Stand up paddle means you can discover (or rediscover) nature’s treasures in a sustainable way and from a whole new perspective: from the sea, from the lagoon or from the river, standing on a board with a paddle in your hand, surrounded only by the lapping water, the breeze and the sound of birds singing.

Excursion

Kayaking

The experience

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.

Nordic Walking

The experience

Nordic walking is a very fashionable sport that's easy to enjoy and guarantees close contact with nature

Sports lovers and health enthusiasts now have a new passion in Lignano Sabbiadoro as well: Nordic walking.

Grab those ultralight poles and wear comfortable clothes: that’s all you need, and you're ready for a long walk on the beach, along the lagoon or in the shade of maritime pines.

Nordic walking has reached the beaches of Lignano Sabbiadoro from far-away Finland, offering all those who wish to stroll without putting in a great deal of effort or requiring technical or physical preparation to enjoy long walks in the open air with a slow, steady pace.

In fact, anyone can practice Nordic walking, and while it's a great workout for athletes, it is also an opportunity to go outside and rediscover the joy of moving around for those who are more sedentary.

Anyone can go Nordic walking in Lignano in total freedom and autonomy, but a basic Nordic walking course is recommended to learn the basics of posture control, foot use, pole function, active arm work and pace adjustment.

Indeed, Lignano Sabbiadoro has a group of people who are passionate about this sport and wanted to enjoy their Nordic walks in the company of others. This gave rise to the Lignano Nordic Walking Association; it organises basic Nordic walking courses, with excursions on the beach and around Lignano throughout the year as well as special events such as moonlight walks and women-only walks.

From June to September you can join free Nordic walking tours with instructors organised by Lignano Sabbiadoro Gestioni every Tuesday starting at 08:00 from the square in Terrazza a Mare

Registration is mandatory and can be done in one of three ways:

  • by calling +39 348 8734734
  • By going to the Lignano Sabbiadoro Gestioni info point in the square in front of Terrazza a Mare, promenade Trieste 5.

Kite surfing

The experience

With its jumps and acrobatics, kite surfing is one of the most impressive and exciting water sports to do in Lignano Sabbiadoro!

Kite surfing is a relatively recent water sport, invented in the late 1990s in the windswept waters of Hawaii, and later exported even to the beaches of the upper Adriatic, like the 8 km-long strand in Lignano where kite surfing has become a must-do all year round.

Kite surfing requires special equipment: a board and a kite controlled using a bar.

In Lignano Sabbiadoro, Kite surfing is quickly gaining popularity and there are qualified schools where you can learn the sport with courses for adults and children.

During winter (from October to May), you can kite surf freely right along the length of Lignano Sabbiadoro beach, while in summer it is forbidden near the beach but is possible at the nearby, uninhabited Conchiglie island.

Conchiglie Island is situated just a few hundred metres from the Santa Monica boardwalk (better known for its picturesque Faro Rosso) and offers the beach with the strongest wind in all of Lignano Sabbiadoro, lifting all the Kite Boarders high in the sky.

From April/May to October, aspiring kiters are taken by qualified instructors in a dinghy as far as Conchiglie Island where – taking basic kite surfing courses – they can learn and improve their kite surfing techniques in total freedom and safety.

Conchiglie Island, with its golden sand and shallow waters, is the ideal spot for kite surfing lessons and practise. The sea wind will take you back what is a clear sandy beach perfect for onland exercises and equipment assembly.
