Since 1999, San Benedetto del Tronto has been awarded the Blue Flag with a star, for the characteristics that meet the quality criteria related to parameters relating to bathing water, the cleanliness of beaches and tourist landings.
The coast with its more than 4 km of shallow and sandy waters ideal for families, is characterized by the presence of a beautiful walk.
The pedestrian area and the cycle path, enriched by palm trees and pine trees, make this stretch of promenade of rare beauty even more striking and exotic with its themed gardens, enriched with particular plants, small ponds and fountains, water games and lights, furnished with benches and armchairs to offer the visitor a visual and olfactory point of observation of these beautiful gardens that also host games such as the Children's Garden or themed objects such as the farm wagon of the Country Garden.
The renovated seafront of San Benedetto del Tronto (precisely the area of Porto d'Ascoli) has a length of about 4 km and is bordered by chalets with private beaches, free beaches and theme gardens, on the one hand, and hotels (including the Hotel Soraya).
In addition to the fabulous promenade there is the cycle path which is the most beautiful and relaxing way to discover the city. The cycle path stretches from Porto d'Ascoli to Cupra Marittima on a flat surface easily traveled by children and roller blade enthusiasts.
The thematic gardens of the south seafront of San Benedetto (Porto d'Ascoli) are characterized by numerous types of plants, games for children, relaxing oases and games of colors that make this promenade among the most evocative of Italy at sunset.
