What are the ideal beaches for children? If you are asking yourself this question before choosing your summer holiday destination, these are the features or criteria that the pediatricians each year consider to finally award the best beaches for children with the green flag: clear water, shallow water near the shore, lifeguards and lifeboats, playability on the sand, spaces to change the diaper or breastfeed, ice-cream shops, bars and restaurants nearby.
Imagine all these comfortable services surrounded by the beauty of the Tuscan seaside, with the possibility of making long walks on the soft beach or playing with your children, building sand castles and eating a snack.
Here’s the list of the beaches awarded with the green flags of pediatricians, safe places for "under 18s".
