Siena- how far to coast/best beaches

How far is it to a nice beach resort with changing facilities, restaurants etc? Just thinking of the heat and cooling down. Is CT too far for a day trip and is it very crowded in July?

It's a 3-4 hour train trip each way from Siena to Riomaggiore. Requires 2-3 train changes also. Virtually all of Italy is crowded in July.

The CT villages are not the place to go for beaches only Monterosso has any beach facilities and that will be extremely busy in the peak season.

Many thanks

Yes should have said CT is a separate idea to a beach day trip.

Are there any nice beaches south of Pisa (closer to Siena)?

Viareggio looks very tempting but maybe a little far?

Just a tip have you thought about beaches near Castagneto Carducci Donoratico just south of Cecina and north of San Vicenzo near the beautiful Bolgheri...?? Mainly for Italians....not a lot of other europeans

Even if the OP has probably come and gone, perhaps the timetables of bus services from Siena to nearest Tuscan beaches might help somebody else: http://www.trainspa.it/en/mare.html

The nearest beaches are in Siena Castiglione della pescaia (beautiful place), or Punta Ala, or Rocchette. 1 hour by car
