In Italy at the extreme south easterm edge of the Veneto Region, on the border with the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, Bibione is an island which is connected to the mainland by a bridge on the Veneto coast.
Between Venice and Trieste and easy to reach from the nearest train stations of Portogruaro (VE) and Latisana (UD), the A4 motorway exits Portogruaro and/or Latisana and from the airports of Venice Marco Polo, Treviso Antonio Canova and Trieste Ronchi dei Legionari, the area is more than 1800 hectares in size and bordered to the north and west by lagoons and fish farms, to the east by the Tagliamento river and to the south by the Adriatic sea.
Bibione was originally a vast pine forest covering almost the whole of the island and the wind had formed high sand dunes which have survived to some extent in the Faro area near the Tagliamento river estuary.
Like all the Veneto's seaside resorts, Bibione has a strong personality and features which make it unique: very large beaches, fine sand and one of the cleanest seas in the upper Adriatic.
Tourism in the area developed from the 1960s and it is now an extremely modern tourist resort with large green areas, pedestrian areas, seafront promenades, squares and interminable streets with shops of every sort and a vast range of accommodation.
