Bibione is one of the three capital beaches of the Upper Adriatic coast. It is part of the province of Venice. Compared to the other two tourist capitals, Jesolo and Caorle, it is the most north-eastern one bordering the nearby Friuli Venezia Giulia.
It is actually an island, part of the municipality of San Michele al Tagliamento from which it detaches precisely because of the passage of the Tagliamento river. The island of the municipality destined to become in 60 years of investment and care of the territory, the second tourist beach in Italy in terms of number of presences and accommodation capacities.
Bibione was a marshy area practiced in an insignificant way since Roman times who, massively settled in the nearby colony Julia Concordia, now Concordia Sagittaria, began some reclamation works definitively abandoned by the Venetian Republic of the Serenissima and left in the hands of fishermen locals. The latter continued to live in their stilt houses, the so-called "casoni", built along the banks of the Tagliamento river, with a wooden structure and covered by the marsh reed of which the lagoon is rich.
It was with the Kingdom of Italy in 1886 that interest in this strip of land began to grow. The reclamations began mostly to make a place crowded with insects and covered with stagnant waters healthier. Only in the early 1950s did the inhabitants understand the enormous luck on which they lived, an expanse of golden sand, a wonderful and shallow sea near the shore, therefore suitable for families with children and an inland rich in culinary and cultural products . Thus began the development of Bibione which has become an international tourist destination.
