About the beach in Jesolo
Lido di Jesolo has a ten-mile long beach made of yellow dolomite sand. Along the back of the beach is a long paved walkway, running between the sand and the many hotels which face directly onto the beach. The town's main street is a couple of blocks inland, with many small lanes connecting the beach with the road.
The long beach is divided into different stabilimenti, beach concessions or bathing establishments, with their own rows of distinctive-coloured parasols. These private beaches all rent out sunbeds (lettini) and parasols (ombrellone). They have open showers along the beachside path, toilets and changing cabins. At convenient intervals along the beach are bars serving drinks, sandwiches, salads and ice cream, meaning that you never actually need to leave the beach. There are also small play areas for children. Hotels may have their own rows of sunbeds, or an arrangement with a beach. Sunbeds aren't necessarily included in the price of your hotel room, so check with your hotel.

Sample prices from the Arenile dei Pioppi beach establishment: a parasol with two sunbeds costs from €14 - €21 per day, depending on what row you choose. Cheaper prices are available from 2pm and from 4pm. There are also weekly, monthly and seasonal rates. You can check the latest prices using the links panel on the right.
If you don't want to pay for the beach - although this goes against the whole Jesolo culture of beach comfort - there is some free beach (spiaggia libera). A short stretch is located not far from Piazza Brescia. This is not cleaned to the same high standard as the private beaches (cigarette ends in the sand), and you're advised not to swim due to the lack of lifeguards. Alternatively, you can walk along the water's edge in front of the sunbed 'farms' and just put your towel down on the sand, if you are brave enough.
