Levanto: the Italian surf town

Italy is located near the Mediterranean Sea but enjoys several different climates. The country can be very warm, humid, cold, snowy, and rainy.

The coastal regions have mild winters, as well as warm and generally dry summers.

Waves do exist, contrary to popular belief. The west coast, from Civitavecchia to Napoli, delivers the best conditions for surfing.

The SE and NW swells are the best to get waves in Italy.

The top Italian surf spots are L'Ideale, Il Porto, La Roccetta, Il Bunker, Ristorante, Banzai, Il Castello, Lido di Ostia, Lido Garda, Marinaretti, La Chiesa, Artiglieria, Santa Agostino and Serapo.
