The 7 Beaches of Gaeta

along the spectacular coast between Gaeta and Sperlonga

To be precise we want to talk about the coast that goes from Gaeta to Sperlonga, 10 Km that we believe are among the most beautiful of all along our peninsula, worthy of being preserved from speculation becoming a natural park or protected marine reserve.

In the 50s a very busy coastal road (the Via Flacca) was created which facilitated the connection and which has an incredible charm and whose beauty sometimes succeeds in overcoming the tourist exploitation.

Via Indipendenza – Churches of S. Giacomo, degli Scalzi and S. Cosma Vecchio – Fish Market

Let’s go now, starting from the Piazza del Comune with its bell tower and the so-called nearby Piazza Roma, in the heart of the village, walking along the typical “gut”: Via Indipendenza. You immediately find yourself in another dimension … 
Alleys and alleys, small windows and balconies, arches and small doors, small shops and stalls of products directly cultivated or packaged by local farmers … step by step is a continuous exaltation of all the senses …

Serapo beach

Serapo is a district of the municipality of Gaeta, which extends along the eastern coast of the isthmus of Montesecco, between Mount Orlando and the Catena hill, which is part of the Fontania promontory. This town is home to a vast beach, located in an urban area, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea from the north.

The  beach of Serapo  is the main beach of the  municipality  of  Gaeta  (also awarded in  2017 , for the fourth consecutive year, the  Blue Flag ),  about one  kilometer from the city center  ; his bathing activity flourished starting in  1926 , when the beach was closed on the northern slope of the Montesecco isthmus.

The beach of fine sand, also simply called  Serapo , is also a destination for Italian  and foreign tourists  , who crowd the beach establishments throughout the summer.

It is about 1.5 km long and was given, almost entirely, in concession by the Municipality of Gaeta.
