Italy's Best Coastal Beach Vacations

By Emma Knott

When we mention Italian beaches, most people will think of the Amalfi Coast, and while this is a truly stunning stretch of coastline, Italy has more to offer than just this one stretch of sandy shoreline. Almost completely surrounded by the sea, Italy, in fact, has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

This encompassing list of Italy's best coastal beach vacations will either provide you with the perfect accommodation for your luxurious trip to the beautiful Italian coastline or produce some vacation inspiration for that holiday you’ve always wanted to go on. Either way, you’re going to be thankful for these stunning beach rentals!

This beautiful glamping accommodation, shaded by four olive trees high up in the hills of Salentini, is just a short walk from the rocky Italian coastline. Head inland to the nearby towns of Lecce and Gallipoli to see some of the most famous art centers in Europe, discover local markets selling fresh produce, or venture a little further along the coastline to find some stunning beaches. (Fun bonus fact: The Salento peninsula divides the Adriatic Sea from the Ionian Sea!)
