The beach in Rimini: whether equipped or free is for everyone

Rimini’s beach extends for about 15 km. The seashore is wide and mostly occupied by private bathing establishments equipped with every service: fitness areas, entertainment, children’s playgrounds, showers, relaxation areas, bars, restaurant. There are also special wheelchair-friendly establishments and others that stand out for their care for environmental sustainability or for giving people the opportunity to bring their pets with them. If we are looking for something suitable for us, we will certainly find it on the beach in Rimini!

The beach of Rimini with beach umbrellas, sun beds and golden sand

 

The beach of Rimini has about 250 private bathing establishments, open from the last weekend of May to the second Sunday of September. Access to the beach is free, butif you want to use the services you must rent a beach umbrella or sun beds by paying a daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal fee. Rimini’s beach is watched over every day by lifeguards from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm.

In Marina Centro the beach is alive all year round! Here, the bathing establishments are open even in winter. Beach volley courts, beach tennis courts, outdoor gyms and children’s playground are always open and available for everyone while waiting for the summer season. The beach of Rimini is open 12 months a year. Beach sports lovers and families with children can walk and play on the beach as long as they want in any season.

On top of that, there are many workstations with stool seats and high tables that you can use to work remotely.

The hospitality on the beach in Rimini is unique

The uniqueness of beach hospitality in Rimini

At the beach in Rimini, hospitality is unique, so much so that we could consider it a cultural heritage linked to beach customs, in which the characteristic of the personal relationship with the customer is fundamental. This cultural identity dates back to the dawn of the last century, and although the facilities have been updated over time, the characteristic of the personal relationship with the customer has remained.

People on the beach in Rimini feel at home. Lifeguards look after the beach meticulously, so that its golden sand is always soft and clean. And safe, where we can play with our children, take long walks or simply relax.

Bathing in the sea in Rimini is safe thanks to the lifeguard service. On the beaches in the province of Rimini, every 150 metres there are lifeguard watchtowers. Eyes that watch over us so that nothing unpleasant happens to us, and ready to intervene if necessary.

At each lifeguard station there is a lifeguard assistant with a licence issued by the National Lifeguard Society or the Italian Swimming Federation (Lifeguard Section). The lifeguard assistant is at the lifeguard station ready to enter the water with the moscone. The service is active from 9.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. with partial deactivation from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. indicated by the red flag.

On the beach in Rimini you won’t get lost thanks to Publiphono

Every day on the beach in Rimini, the Publiphono service is active. With its main broadcast, Radio Vacanza, it makes its voice heard along the entire coastline through a widespread sound system. In addition to music and information on local activities, Publiphono broadcasts messages to find children or elderly people lost on the beach. Every summer, hundreds of people are found. A service aimed at the tourist community, completely free of charge, to whom the serenity of our stay on the Riviera is entrusted.

Rimini’s beach is plastic free

Rimini’s beach has already been plastic free for years. The sale and distribution of drinks in glasses and with disposable plastic straws is therefore prohibited. For a sustainable beach that promotes the wellbeing of those who visit it, it is also forbidden to smoke on the shoreline.

Fun on the beach

The latest trend on the beach in Rimini are the chiringuiti, kiosks by the sea serving drinks and snacks all day long. And which from the afternoon until late in the evening offer aperitifs with DJ sets, parties and live entertainment. If we want to enjoy the beach to the full, let’s not miss a drink with our feet in the sand!

If we prefer a more free and less organised dimension, we can choose one of Rimini’s free beaches. There are 12 of them, alternating with equipped establishments, and they can be easily reached from all the Rimini districts.

Wherever we choose to stay we will always have a free alternative to the bathing establishments. It is possible to find both free beaches equipped with minimum services (showers, access platforms and lifeguard service) and unequipped ones. All this is always a short distance from hotels, restaurants and shops.

The most popular free beach is the one in Marina Centro at Piazzale Boscovich, in the harbour area. During the summer, numerous events are organised here and on the square in front of it is the large panoramic wheel from which you can have a view of the entire Romagna Riviera and the city from above.

Since 2014, on the free beach in Piazzale Boscovich, the service run by the Ondanomala onlus association has provided a beach chair (Sedia Sole Mare) from the Adjutor orthopaedic workshops, to enable wheelchair users to reach the water easily, even at the end of the walkway.
