The beaches

Spiaggia Mezzavalle

Urbani beach

This is the closest and easiest beach to reach from the center of Sirolo, on foot or by shuttle bus. There you will find some stretches of free beach and several bathing establishments with all beach facilities. At least a sunrise over the sea from here is definitely worth seeing!

Spiaggia San Michele Sassi Neri

San Michele and Sassi neri beaches

These beaches can be reached on foot from Sirolo (descending the path from the Parco della Repubblica or from the Urbani beach) or with the shuttles provided by the bathing establishments. Their distinctive feature is to be completely surrounded by the greenery of Mount Conero. Stretches of free beach alternate with bathing establishments.

Spiaggia Le Due Sorelle

Due sorelle beach

This is the beach symbol of the Conero par excellence. Skyscanner has elected this tiny strip of land wet by the Adriatic as the most beautiful beach in Italy in 2019. It can only be reached by sea. The beach is free, here there are no restaurants or beach facilities, so remember the umbrella and sunscreen!

Spiaggia Mezzavalle

Mezzavalle beach

This charming wild beach in the northern part of Mount Conero can be reached by sea or on foot, following one of the two paths that start from the state road and descend to the beach...sneakers are definitely needed. Here there are no bathing establishments, just a small bar/restaurant and a beautiful sea.

Spiaggia Portonovo


An oasis of sea and nature, where you can spend a relaxing day. Here you will find some renowned seafood restaurants, where we recommend you stop for lunch or an aperitif at sunset. Among the vegetation of the Conero that surrounds the beach you will find some small lakes, the Clementine tower and the Romanesque church of Santa Maria di Portonovo: a real gem!


La Spiaggiola

North of the port of Numana is the Spiaggiola beach, a small gulf with bathing establishments as well as free beach. Continuing northwards is the small Frati beach which is delightfully peaceful. It has been the cove of the Numana Turtles for some years, thanks to the collaboration between the municipality of Numana, the Cetacea Foundation and the Italian Naval League of Numana. Moreover, by the end of June you will find a biologist ready to answer your questions about the presence of these beautiful animals in our sea.
