Santa Marinella, which is 60 kilometres and less than an hour by car from Rome, is a popular surfers’ paradise. The territorial peculiarities of this part of the Lazio coastline make it ideal for surfing which has been very popular in the area since the 1980s.

The winds and currents create perfect surfing conditions

The jagged coast with its many bays and inlets has a rocky bottom which means that the waves reach the seafront with greater intensity. The formation of the bays in the area channel the winds and the sea currents in such a way that they create perfect waves to the delight of surfing enthusiasts.
