Cavallino-Treporti is a coastal municipality in the Venetian Lagoon, bordering Jesolo and stretching to Punta Sabbioni and the Lio Piccolo sandbanks.
From Garden Paradiso, you can comfortably reach both Cavallino and Treporti by bicycle.
The lagoon environment of the Cavallino-Treporti coastline that surrounds Garden Paradiso is full of saltwater plants, such as Salicornia or marsh samphire (excellent for cooking!) and Cakile maritima (also known as sea rocket) – which, as well as being edible, is also used as an ingredient in beauty creams. Another typical plant is Limonium (sea lavender), which blooms in late summer, turning our campsite a purple-lilac shade and spreading its delicate scent everywhere.
There are also numerous species of birds that have made the lagoon their habitat, such as herons, black-winged stilts – with their slender orange legs – ducks and cormorants. In recent years, we’ve also been able to see pink flamingos, reflected in graceful poses in the water.
In the heart of the town of Cavallino, you can visit the Palazzo Padronale and the Church of Santa Maria Elisabetta, both built in the 17th to 18th centuries. If you go for a walk on a Tuesday morning in Cavallino or on a Thursday in Treporti, you’ll find colourful traditional markets in their main squares, where you can find fresh, seasonal and locally sourced produce, such as jujuba, “sparasea” (green asparagus), “castraure” (artichokes) and nectarines, as well as numerous stalls selling accessories and clothing.
If you love bike tours, you’re in the right place! From Cavallino-Treporti, you can explore the lagoon environment, immerse yourself in nature and reach Saccagnana, Lio Piccolo and Mesole. Want to visit the islands in the lagoon? From here, you can set off on a boat trip to explore the surrounding area.
If you’re staying in Cavallino, what else is there to see? For history lovers, the Batteria Vettor Pisani, built between 1909 and 1912, and the Forte di Treporti, built by the Austrians between 1845 and 1851, are definitely worth a visit.
Don’t miss Punta Sabbioni beach and its distinctive lighthouse – it’s the perfect place to relax with children, take a dip and admire the beautiful colours of the lagoon at sunset. Since 2006, the Cavallino-Treporti coastline has held the prestigious Blue Flag award, which recognises the best beaches in terms of respect for the environment, services offered and bathing water quality.
And after a day full of excitement, what could be better than a good dinner? In Cavallino-Treporti, you can find plenty of restaurants and cafés, where you can taste traditional delicacies, from fresh fish to locally grown vegetables.
