I am heading to Italy on the 4th June. I will be visiting Venice, Florence, Sorrento and The Amalfi Coast. Can anyone recommend some good BEACHES in any of these areas ??

There are so many beautiful beaches in Italy, it's hard to pinpoint them, but in my opinion, the Tuscan coastline is one of the most beautiful in the world! The coast in the Livorno area is absolutely gorgeous, I went last Summer to the Spiaggia Bianca (white sands beach) and it's like something from the Carribbean, the bluest sea in Italy, and the whitest sand I've ever seen, I stayed here:
It was really close to the beach, but was quiet and relaxed. I'd definately reccommend it to anyone. Hope that helps.

There are beaches all along the Amalfi coast - you can't miss them! Just drive along the coast and stop every now and again when it looks good. There are a few really, really nice ones in the more upscale areas. I believe Capri has some great beaches, too, and it's just a boatride away.

You're probably good anywhere you go. From what I've seen, the beaches on the eastern coast are absolutely amazing

Venice has the Lido (literally: beach), which is one of the islands that seperates the laguna from the adria. Don't know whether the beach is great there, but it is definitely possible to go for a swim.

Rimini is very famous, btw - and it is just 30 minutes by train from Florence.

Cervia and Milano-Marittima have beautiful beaches. They are smaller towns that have a really quaint feeling to them. Check them out!
