Are you looking for a clear, fresh and transparent water and wonderful paradisiac beaches as you see in those Caraibi movies?

Let’s go to the natural reserve of Conero Mountain, Italy! an incredible piece of Adriatic seaside, characterised by cliffs overlooking the sea, white pebbles, huge rocks and a water with a wonderful color .

The Conero seaside is 20 km long, from Ancona till Numana, and comprises also the municipality of Camerano, not touched by the sea, and Sirolo easily reachable from the exit Ancona Sud on the A14 highway.

Conero and Summer Jamboree

Sirolo, a typical italian small town 125 m above the sea level, is the starting point to reach the most beautiful Conero beaches as Spiaggia Urbani,  Spiaggia di San Michele and Spiaggia delle Due Sorelle.

Reaching Urbani and San Michele is not difficult.

You just have to walk down from Sirolo centre and in 15 minutes you are there. There is also a bus service (for 1,50 euro you can pay onboard) very nice especially to go back, since the climb is quite tough.

In any case we suggest to not stop by Urbani, the most crowded  and “confortable” beach, but to walk through it to arrive to Spiaggia San Michele, where you will have a wonderful panorama of Conero Mountain. From there you can reach, only by sea, Spiaggia delle Due Sorelle, symbol of the Conero seaside with its two stacks.

We recommend to arrive there renting a two seats canoa or a pedalò in San Michele, a great experience both for the cheap price and the wonderful vision you have passing through the rocks.

An alternative is to take the ferry that leaves from Numana and passy by San Michele two times a day:

Before the dawn it is worth a walk through the streets of Sirolo, where you can dine anything from pizza to traditional fish stew, and then walk to the nearby Numana, an ancient fishing village full of bars, where enjoy a cocktail after dinner.

However, if it is not quiet you want but a lot of people ready to dance rock n ‘roll, you should drive 50km north and reach the Summer Jamboree in Senigallia! In fact the first days of August this city rampages with this unique international festival dedicated to the american music and culture of the ’40s and’ 50s. For the occasion, the entire city is filled with U.S. classic cars, polka dot skirts and grease, while rock music is playing in every streets and hundreds of people are unleashed in the footsteps of rock, swing and lindy hop.

It is one of the most important European festivals of this genre, and should not be missed.

And if you do not know how to dance? Do not worry! every day of the festival, from 18 to 19 hours you can have free dance lessons at the gardens of the Castle of Senigallia!

Conero and Summer Jamboree! What else can you ask for?

PS. The entire coast of Conero offers numerous options to sleep, from hotels to B&B, but for those on a tight budget we suggest to pitch a tent in one of the many campsites in Sirolo. Until the beginning of August (not peak season) for few euros you can have a good spot under a stars roof.
