Eraclea Mare – Green Pearl of Veneto
Eraclea Mare is a smaller and quieter resort located about 60 kilometers north of Venice, and about 10 kilometers from the fishing town of Caorle. With easy access from the highway it is a great place also for travellers who travel further to the south.
It is often referred to as the Green Pearl of Veneto for a number of pine trees. There are not so many tourists than in larger resorts in Italy so you can look forward to having some free space available for you.

Its advantage is not only in quietness and a smaller size, but especially in about 150 metres wide park full of pines, suitable for long relaxing walks, which separates the sea with the beach from resort itself. It offers a modern accommodation, as well as all other required services for tourists, including restaurants and bars, shops and supermarkets. There is also a market day every Wednesday so you can buy products directly from the smaller producers and growers.
The beaches here are wide, with a fine sand. Sea is calm with a soft access which is suitable for non-swimmers or children. The resort is situated near Lignano, which also offers a water park, zoo and golf course. From Eraclea Mare you can take trips to interesting destinations in the area, such as Venice, Trieste or Palmanova.
