Porto di Cecina, 57023 Cecina LI
The following information is considered to be the information provided by the port.
It was back in the 1960s that a group of forty enthusiasts began to imagine a safe harbour, a mooring place for small boats on the River Cecina, in order to organise and regulate boating in the area, avoiding uncontrolled and unsafe mooring, while also enhancing the landscape. This led to the foundation of the Circolo Nautico Foce Cecina, an organisation that undertook to create a wooden walkway along the river bank and started out by promoting a number of sporting activities with links to the sea. It is still actively involved in sailing, rowing, diving and sport fishing today. Over the years, the association has worked hard to improve the environment and the services it offers, while also focusing on protecting the unspoilt local area. It caters to the desire for the sea among local people and the numerous tourists who come here. From the 1990s onwards, there began to be talk of building a real marina. In 1995 a group of ten councillors proposed the establishment of a specific limited company, an enterprise able to make the necessary investments in order to make this dream come true. This led to the foundation of Porto di Cecina Spa. The project took shape over the years, and in March 2012 work started on the construction of the cutting-edge Cecina marina, which is the first facility of its kind in Europe to feature renewable energy solutions that completely respect the surrounding environment. The Marina of Cecina will be the ideal landing place with its 800 berths, it has a capacity for more than 400 boats measuring until 40 metres. A perfectly equipped shipyard, a dry stack and many car parks are also available. Not only that, the structure also wants to become the center for shopping and socializing within an open space with the large spaces and modern infrastructure to enjoy the sea as apartments, shops, bars, restaurants, a spa, convention and expo areas, a yacht club and a superior category hotel. Nowadays the works are in progress and at the present time the new port basin in a private area has been created. In addition to it, a dock with sea defense works in the public area – for a total of 650 berths up to 28 meters – has been created as well. In the background you can admire the beautiful scenery of the beach and the pine wood of Marina di Cecina, where the Maremma and Costa degli Etruschi (the Etruscan Coast) are starting to show their immense beauty, near the Tuscan archipelago.
