Blue Flag to Eraclea

The Blue Flag is an award that is given to beaches and marinas that have met stringent standards. The ‘eco-label’ is awarded on an annual basis to beaches and marinas around the world. The right to fly a Blue Flag at a beach or a marina is a strong indication of high environmental standards and is a much sought after accolade around the world.

The Blue Flag Programme is owned and run by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) which is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisationconsisting of 65 member organisations representing 60 countries.

The Mort Lagoon

The Mort Lagoon

The Mort Lagoon

The Mort Lagoon, an extremely evocative naturalistic site between Eraclea and Jesolo, was originated by the overflowing of the Piave river in 1936, whose bed was modified in its last stretch after a big flood.The Mort stretches between Eraclea Mare and the mouth of the Piave river and it is a sea-lagoon, being supplied with water only by the flood-tides. Still uncontaminated, the Mort is characterized by shallow and calm waters with a sandy and muddy seabed, rich in phytoplankton.

This is a very important site from a naturalistic point of view, enjoyable in every season, whose precious and delicate ecosystem is going through an extensive reclamation, aiming at the restoration of the original environment, that gives shelter to a great variety of plants and autochthonous animals.
The change of season corresponds to a change in the local fauna too: mussels, oysters, clams, crabs, grey mullets, flounders, soles, cormorans and terns, only to mention a few species.
The flora species are also numerous and peculiar: it is possible, for example, to see a great variety of water-plants living in salt-water.
To study and admire these peculiarities, the Territorial Laboratory for Environmental Education organises guided visits to the Mort Lagoon. At the Limosa Centre is also available an exhibition which is worth-visiting to get to know about the lagoon and the surrounding environment.

Eraclea Mare = sport and nature

Eraclea Mare and nature, Eraclea Mare and environment, really two inseparable combinations.
Just because it is named the green pearl of Adriatic sea, this resort is the ideal place for a sports holiday dedicated to one’s own well-being and fitness, that must not be necessarily connected with sea and beach.
It is possible, in fact, to walk along the well-being path too, in the pinewood or walking by the Mort Lagoon…

The itineraries are the most various and also offer the opportunity to have a relaxing break in the Venetian countryside while tasting the typical products in a holiday farm or in a ‘trattoria’.
