If you are looking not only for fun and sun, but also for beaches with breathtaking details and the beautiful sea here it is a selection of the most beautiful beaches of Lazio:
– Palmarola, considered by many as a paradise on the outskirts of Rome, is part of the Pontine Islands, but it is the most beautiful with a crystal clear sea and many coves, each offering always a different view. To fully enjoy the unique beauty of Palmarola it’s advisable to rent a boat.

The beach is distinguished by its imposing cliffs over 100 meters high.

Sperlonga is often included in the “Blue Flags” that certify the quality of the sea and beaches, as is also confirmed in 2015. Most of the beaches of Sperlonga are private and so you have to pay to access it.
