The coastline is located far from the road, offering a safe oasis to children, also thanks to sandy beaches and shallow waters. This is the perfect place to relax, where you can relax listening to the sounds of the sea. We can say metaphorically that this seafront is a rather democratic monarch.
Actually, it offers a wide range of possibilities to its visitors: public beaches for those who prefer to bring their own beach umbrella and chairs, and well equipped bathing establishments as well.
Well, yes: this is the perfect place to live a relaxing sunny holiday, and to discover small and big wonders.
The first one?
It is the Square Tower, once used as sighting point to defend the town against the raids of pirates. Indeed, it was built in medieval times, for defensive purpose against sea raids. At that time, the imposing building allowed to sight enemy ships and warn the population quickly. Nowadays, the tower offers a stunning view and it allows visitors to admire all the charm of this seaside resort from the top. The historical district Le Casette is another gem of this seaside town, the most suggestive part of the residential area of Porto Potenza Picena. This district is made of small simple houses, once belonged to the local families called Sciapecotti, a dialect name to refer to fishermen. It involved the use of a needle with a large trawl net, made of two long wings and a sack used to catch smallest fish. Not far away from the beach stands Villa Buonaccorsi, one of the precious gems of this territory. It preserves one of the most fascinating eighteenth-century Italian Style Gardens. It is divided in five terraces, connected by a central flight of steps and surrounded by a thick grove. The garden is full of fountains, water features, walkways, niches and magnificent statues.
What about a dip in nature?
So, your destination is Parco dei laghetti!
This area is located close to the northern coastline and it includes a surrounding floristic area. The park is located in a former gravel pit.
The surface is 64 hectares, of which 32 hectares of water. In addition, the oasis encloses a short sandy coastline, an important place for ducks (as Moretta tabaccata) and coots: there, they can find a safe spot to rest or to pass the overwintering.
A cycle path connects the center of Porto Potenza with the Parco dei Laghetti.
