Autumn in Lignano, time for walks and sport

Published: Friday, 18 November 2011

Even during the autumn months it is nice to make a tour in Lignano Sabbiadoro.
You can see the city and the beach from another point of view: the city is not full of people, there are few cars and the air has the typical autumnal fragrance, mixed, however, with salt of the sea and the scent of pines.

Many people think that a seaside resort as Lignano is nice to visit only during the summer, when the sun, the heat and the fun are at the height of their power. Instead, even during the rest of the year, the beach is able to give relaxing moments, very special landscapes and the possibility to do outdoor sports.

In fact, temperatures are not so harsh as to force people to stay at home and, especially after lunch, you can see several people running or walking along the streets of Lignano, from the green Riviera to the centre of Sabbiadoro, always beating heart of the city, but much more quiet now. The sun is high and you still feel its warmth, the climate is dry and you can breathe a fresh air that scents of maritime pine.

Those who choose to run on the beach, derive very much benefit from the sand, that makes work and strengthens all the muscles of the foot and leg. Of course, we suggest to run where the sand is hard, that is on the shore, so as not to strain too much the Achilles tendon. Even a walk on the beach is good for the body, both for muscles and for the respiratory system: the fresh air rich in iodine and very clean of these months is an effective remedy and also give a certain liveliness.

The lovers of bicycle take advantage of these days of sun to discover all the hidden places of Lignano. From the mouth of the river Tagliamento they ride the last bends on a wide paved road surrounded by reed beds and pine wood, then continue on the banks leading to the canal, the natural border of the town. Other paths on small banks lead to the lagoon, where admire a marvellous landscape.

While those who want to see the sand of the beach of Lignano without beach umbrellas, sun beds and deck chairs, use the cycle path of the seafront in Sabbiadoro and Pineta. The beach makes one feel strange: the winds form the dunes, the beach bars and the fixed equipments such as the playgrounds for children are closed, at various point, on windy days, the waves reach up to half of the beach and you hear only the sound of the sea and the cry of gulls.

In this period the beach is also the ideal place for the dogs, which can have fun with their masters. Running on the sand, completely free, or a walk on a leash.
Or even a horse ride, why not? In Lignano and surroundings there are several riding schools that provide their own horses for a ride in groups in the seaside resort, both on the roads and on the beach.

When the sun goes down or if blows the bora wind, the cafés offer the perfect cover to keep warm with a good coffee, a tea or a hot chocolate on comfortable sofas.

Even during the coldest months offers Lignano a beautiful landscape, ideal for a day trip with friends to discover a different city.
