Camaiore, Versilia Coast
| Next, Viareggio beach
Lido di Camaiore (Camaiore beach) spiaggia libere (free beach) at the top end near the road.
The actual width of Camaiore's free beach can be clearly seen here. Rope to rope it's about 6m wide, but runs from sea to road, so it's about 70m long. When there's a squeeze on bold bathers park themselves just outside the ropes.
Nevertheless, crowded or not, the sun is strong, the sand soft and the water is clean and warm.

Camaiore's pay section.
The more pricey areas of Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio sit on either side of Camaiore but the sand, sun and sea are identical. Camaiore is just off a fast road route to Lucca (20kms), Pisa (20kms) and Florence (70 kms), while it's neighbouring beaches are about 4 kms away.
Accommodation is not open all year round apart from a few hotels, but in season there are villas to rent as well as B&Bs, Pensions and Hotels.
