Trieste-swimming beaches

We are flying into Ljubljiana and plan to go to Trieste for 4 days or so before spending balance of time in Slovenia.

This will be late September and hoping to go for a paddle/swim fromTrieste.No transport so will be local bus/train/shanks.

Any suggestions please(not heading to Cinque Terre tho)

Thanks

The beach starts in the centre of Barcola and streches all the way north to the Miramare castle.

#1 - true, but it is not exactly a 'beach', i.e. no sand, and mostly no pebbles either -- you basically plunge into the sea from a sidewalk!

Nice, though. Take buses 6 or 36 from the city center.

Beni suggestion is a good one. And FF is right, we're not really talking about a beach there. But rather an animated, crowded paved coastline. Pretty cool though. And probably not so overpacked in september.

To tell you the truth, though, beaches in Trieste aren't the best you can find in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Hence you might want to consider getting an early bus to Grado, which is, in my opinion, a nice seaside town, with much better beach opportunities, compared to Trieste. Just my 2 cents. Feel free to ask for more.

Good luck organizing your trip.
