In Grado, there are two well-known beaches.
The first one, also known as the "spiaggia nuova," is close to the hotel and has the great advantage of being completely south-facing, making it bathed in sunshine from morning to evening. It is two kilometers long and is famous for having been frequented by Emperor Franz Joseph.
The second one is the Costa Azzurra, also known as the "spiaggia vecchia," which has a beautiful view of Grado's skyline and hosts four establishments and evening music parties.
However, the residents of Grado prefer a third beach, which is much more wild and less frequented by tourists. This is Banco D'Orio, a strip of sand between the sea and the lagoon that can only be reached by boat. It is a protected area where in some zones, it is not possible to dock as it is designated for bird nesting.
There are no services of any kind, umbrellas, beach chairs, or bars, but if you are seeking tranquility, a wild atmosphere, and clean waters, this is the beach for you!
If you stay at Hotel Savoy, we will be delighted to provide you with a Yeti cooler bag for your snack.
