Summer means sea. An equation Italians know well. With around eight thousand kilometres of coastline, our beautiful peninsula offers shores to suit all tastes, from wild rocks to the finest sand. And although Italy’s favourite summer destination is by the sea, it doesn’t necessarily mean the days should only be made up of swimming, sunbathing and seafood spaghetti.
A flood… of activities
Many sports can be practised on the beach and those who run resorts and shops in the area are well aware of this, so much so that many areas now offer open-air gyms, iwhere you can exercise or practise yoga, fitness or soft gymnastics.
If you want some time to treat yourself and to take care of your well-being on your own, then you might enjoy more a nice run along the shoreline, better in the morning, with cool sand and water to tone your muscles and stimulate your circulation.
You cannot fail to meet couples or groups of people at the beach playing one of the great summer classics:racquetball. It takes so little to spend time with friends, having fun and keeping fit even if you are not really an athlete!
And on sandy shores there are countless playgrounds for exciting games of beach volleyball, the summer version of volleyball, where you face each other in pairs. Have you ever seen people play with their feet? That’ s foot volleyball, originated on Brazilian beaches and recently come down to us, which borrows the rules from beach volleyball but with the ban on using arms and hands.
An eye on health.
As a good habit, when practising sport and exercise you should pay attention to your diet, especially in summer and under the hot sun.
