The vibrant beach town of Jesolo lies around 30km to the north-east of Venice, between Cavallino-Treporti and Eraclea. Although it offers a convenient base for visiting Venice, Jesolo should not be viewed only as that – as it has many attractions of its own, including a lagoon, some great restaurants and a 15km sandy beach. A great range of both daytime and nightime activities are on offer, meaning this popular seaside destination has something of interest for holidaymakers of all ages.
Jesolo is popular with tourists, especially during summer months, and as a result has a good range of holiday rental accommodation and attractions. The beach is perhaps the biggest attraction in town, with around 15km of fine golden Dolomite waiting to be enjoyed. Sunbathing is as popular as ever – and with row after row of sunbeds the only problem is finding where you left your sunscreen after a dip in the sea! Water and beach sports can also be enjoyed around the area, so why not try your hand at wind surfing, diving or kite surfing?
Outdoor activities are popular in Jesolo, but not all require you getting wet. Tennis, basketball, mini golf, a water park and Go-Karting facilities can all be found nearby, and visitors of all ages are sure to be able to find something to do.
Evening entertainment can also be found in abundance in this fun-loving destination, with a collection of vibrant bars open until well into the early hours of the morning, many of which are located on Bafile Street. If partying the night away is not your thing, you will be pleased to discover a good selection of quieter cafe-bars and restaurants, serving up strong Italian coffee, top seafood and fine wines. Fast food and takeaway options can also be found in their droves.
A holiday in a Jesolo villa would not be complete without a visit to Venice, a city famous for its waterways, gondolas, museums, palaces and Venetian villas. Venice is often revered as the most beautiful man-made city in the world, and can be reached within 45 minutes of leaving Jesolo. This journey is most fun when made by motorboat, bringing you into the city in style!
Jesolo holidays can be enjoyed at any time of the year, but if you are planning to spend large chunks of time on the beach, you will probably want to visit during June, July or August, when temperatures are usually between 25C and 30C. Late spring and early autumn are also warm, but outside of these months the best attractions are the indoor ones.
Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE) is the place to head when visiting Jesolo, as it is just 24km from your end destination. The airport receives regular flights from all around the UK, with extra services during summer months. Treviso Airport (TSF) is a popular alternative with budget flight fans, and adds an extra 16km onto your journey upon arrival.
