Caorle, a historic seaside village

Caorle is a historic town and a popular seaside destination with around eighteen kilometres of sandy coastline.

The beach offers tourists every comfort for a peaceful holiday under the sun: equipped bathing facilities, health trails, children’s playgrounds. Wandering around the town’s streets, one is fascinated by the fishing harbour that nestles in the old historic centre transformed into a pedestrian zone: old houses painted in pastel colours, calli and campielli recall the town’s Venetian vocation, contributing to creating a rarefied atmosphere.

The Church of the Madonna dell’Angelo, which stands on the sea cliff, recalls the seafaring soul of the inhabitants of Caorle, who have lived from fishing for centuries. The old town centre is dominated by the ancient Romanesque cathedral, flanked by the circular bell tower that has served as the watchtower of the seaside town over the centuries.

The seaside town offers two docks set up for mooring vessels: one in the main town and one in Porto Santa Margherita, able to accommodate a total of around 900 berths.

The area surrounding Caorle offers unspoilt nature, to be discovered through birdwatching in the Brussa oasis or through boat trips in the Northern Lagoon during which one can visit the ‘casoni’, buildings used in the past by fishermen as residences during the fishing season.

A considerable opportunity for recreation is provided by the Aquafollie water park, ideal for families thanks to its numerous attractions and the new Fisherman’s Bay. Finally, just seven kilometres from Caorle, green enthusiasts will find the Pra’ delle Torri Golf Club, a splendid 18-hole course that is well suited to those approaching this sport for the first time, but which, with the wind and the well-placed flags, becomes challenging even for the most experienced.
