OK - so if you have ever been to the Caribbean - you are unlikely to like this beach. We went to Viarregio because of good reviews and it was a waste of time. We spent our two days doing day trips to Lucca and Pisa (both of which are well worth the 20 minute train trip). The beach is brown sand - and while clean - the water is very murky. It is like a sand bar and you can walk way out - but if you have kids - beware as you will be renting chairs (25 euros for 2 chairs) that are miles away from the shoreline. All the chairs close to the water go to "season" holders. We had just come from Santa Margherita and the rocky beach there was much cleaner with blue - not brown! - water. Forget the sand beach - head north - or south to other beach resorts.
