Gabicce Mare

Our town has received the Blue Flag award 24 times since 1987: a quality mark, for the characteristics of the waters, environmental education, etc.

Every corner of the town is connected quickly by the characteristic "Gabicce Express" train, which arrives in a few minutes in Gabicce Monte, Gradara, Cattolica.

It stands on the edge of the San Bartolo Natural Park and at the foot of the promontory of the same name. Located on the Adriatic Sea, bordering Cattolica, with which it shares the ancient port, all the traditions, and the tourist development.

It is a welcoming seaside resort, which has shown its vocation for hospitality since the beginning of the century; promises a holiday between sea and hills, with healthy air and a particularly pleasant climate.
Its beautiful beach combines a thousand opportunities during the day and at night, small and large events enliven the squares. "Art Tuesdays" take place from June to September, and it's like being in a small "Montmartre", dozens of painters and sculptors work with the public animating Piazza Valbruna, the heart of the small village from which you can enjoy a magnificent view of the whole Riviera.

For a walk surrounded by greenery, from Gabicce Monte there are several paths that cross the San Bartolo Natural Park: or continuing along the Panoramica towards Vallugola.

Ancient port and Roman city, you can immerse yourself in the magical atmosphere of the mythical Valbruna, sunk into the sea in the mists of time, where many sporting activities, typically maritime, are also organized.
Vallugola can also be reached by sea.

If you want a relaxing and alternative holiday (sea, sport, leisure, entertainment, culture, excursions ...), the Hotel Promenade will offer you, however, comfort, quality and courtesy, with particular attention to your needs !!

In the beaches of Gabicce Mare there is Posidonia algae , an index of high environmental quality, much better than a "blue flag". The name of the Posidonia oceanica is a tribute to Poseidon, God of the sea, it is a soft and anti-erosion barrier, it develops on the sandy bottom at a depth varying between 1 m and 35 meters. Its role is very important for the protection of the marine ecosystem, and also acts as a "shield" for small animals of the sea. Unfortunately today it is in danger of extinction due to maritime traffic and boat anchors. Its extinction can cause the beach to shrink.
