The Tre Ponti Beach in Ardenza is one of the few stretches of pebbly sand near Livorno city centre. Deckchairs and umbrellas are available to hire, but there is also room to spread a towel and sunbathe free of charge. There is a primitive shower for rinsing off the salt and sand, but no toilet facilities. Just across the road there is a café, and a large free (for now) car park. Nearby is the Centro Surf 3 Ponti, catering for surfing and windsurfing enthusiasts, and offering courses in Windsurfing, Kite surfing, Surfing, SUP and canoeing.
How to get here: LAM Blu bus from the city centre
