Exploring the lagoon

Grado, an entire eco-system to explore.

With 25 kilometres of extraordinarily rich nature make Grado lagoon the most beautiful basin in th Mediterranean.

A true paradise for birdwatching, the Lagoon consists of two nature reserves holding precious biodiversity: Val Cavanata and Isola della Cona, easily accessible by bicycle and the ideal destination for enjoyable family trips.

To discover the lagoon you can take a motorboat trip towards Porto Buso or as far as the
Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine Maria on the island of Barbana, or hire a boat for excursions with friends or family and enjoy the splendid waters and wild nature of Banco d’Orio.

Don’t miss a trip among the casoni (the typical home of the lagoon fishermen with a thatched
roof)!
