The Nature Reserve Tombolo di Cecina has 15 km of Mediterranean vegetation and sand dunes. It is considered as the green lung of the Cecina coast, a place of peace and tranquility where to find cool even in the hottest hours of the day. The reserve is also the ideal area for walking, hiking, trekking, mountain biking and horseback riding.
The dense vegetation is crossed by many trails and dirt roads that can easily be traversed even by less trained and children. Often along these itineraries you will find picnics tables and benches where you can take a break.
During hiking in the Nature Reserve Tombolo di Cecina you can see the traces of many animals that have found shelter in the park. Rabbits, squirrels and even foxes and roe deer are just some of the locals, and there are also many species of birds.
In fact, the long and thick pine forest we know today is due to man, precisely to the Grand Duke of Tuscany Leopoldo. In 1839 he committed himself to building a forest that protected the local cultivation so that winds and salt from the sea did not damage the work of the peasants.
