Principina a Mare and Marina di Grosseto: history, Blue Flag and fun
Looking for fully equipped bathing facilities, the ability to enjoy any water sports – from kite surfing to sailing, from jet skiing to surfing – or beaches on which to stretch out and sunbathe in total relaxation? For any kind of day you’d like to enjoy, Marina di Grosseto and Principina a Mare, 15 km from Castiglione della Pescaia and from Riva del Sole, will definitely be destinations to consider.
The two locations, that are consistently awarded the Blue Flag by the FEE which certifies the quality of water and the environment, but also the particular care taken by local authorities, are surrounded by beautiful pine trees and lined with classic Mediterranean shrubland, and bordering the Natural Park of Maremma.
Marina di Grosseto, besides the beautiful sea, also offers military architecture (such as the San Rocco Fort and the Marze Fort) in addition to interesting religious architecture (the Church of St. Rocco, the Chapel of Canova and the Chapel of St. Stephen).
The beaches of Principina, a short distance from those of Marina di Grosseto, are much more rugged than the latter, forming part of the territories that continue to be marshy towards the Ombrone, in an area called Il Padule della Trappola which is ideal for birdwatchers.
Principina also hosts military vestiges such as the Trappola Tower.
