Thanks to the mild climate, the tranquility and the beauty of the landscape, Marina di Bibbona has become a well-known seaside resort for a relaxing, fun and immersed in nature holiday.
The real jewel of Marina di Bibbona is its coast, which includes wide beaches of fine sand, the typical tomboli of Mediterranean scrub and the characteristic dunes .
The tombolos have the function of repairing the internal cultivated areas from sea winds and are made up of low vegetation that separates the beach from the hinterland.
Marina di Bibbona is located in the center of two splendid pine forests that embrace the coast.
La Pineta is the ideal place to spend days in the thick vegetation, organize fun picnics or stroll in the shade of the pine trees.
The long beaches are bathed by an uncontaminated sea, they are partly equipped (bathing establishments) and partly free.
One part of the free beaches is also reserved for four-legged friends.
The important recognition of the Blue Flag attests to the cleanliness of the waters.
Ideal place for lovers of swimming and water sports.

Between the sea and the green hills stands the town of Guardistallo which takes its name from the low hill on which it is located.
This name was first registered in 1144 and presumably derives from the German words warda ('clock') and stable ('place').
