I was not going to pass up a chance to swim in the Med! One son and I took the train from Trastevere-8 Euro round-trip. There are several private beach clubs you can rent from...not sure why we picked this one but they all seem much the same. 2 chairs and umbrella were 23 Euro, which was worth it to me to get out of the sun for a bit. Beware that the hostess only speaks Italian, so she had to get a lifeguard to help us with transactions. But it all worked out! There is a free beach next door, but you have to bring your own umbrellas & chairs, which doesn't really work for tourists. The water is clear and surprisingly cold. We ate a late lunch at a cafe at the other end of the beach. The train ride out here took about 40 minutes..not bad to get out of the city for a short time.

The sand on the beach is very nice and the water is shallow and clear. The beach is only a five minute walk form the train station which made it ideal for us since we were coming from Rome. The price seemed a little steep €10 per lounge chair and €10 for the umbrella. The water was cold which was a little surprising to me. There is a little store selling water, beer, and food there, but i would recommend taking the eight minute walk to L'acqua Marina (Ristorante L'AcquaMarina on google maps) for lunch. All in all not a bad way to spend a day and rest our feet from all the walking we had been doing in Rome.

This beach is lovely and calm, the ambience is relaxing and the beach is crystal clear. One could walk into the water and view what you are stepping on. Now the con! If you think you are going to be eating in front of the ocean like you would in South Beach and Malibu you are in for a huge disappointment, as they only serve beer and cold sandwiches everywhere. And, if you want to dine in the afternoon, all the restaurants are closed. Yes, you read correctly, the food establishment close at 2:00pm and they only serve you sandwiches and pizza if you are lucky. I mean what kind of business closes at 2:00pm on a Friday and doesn't offer a variety on the menu.

Wanted a beach day as part of a cruise stop in Civitavecchia and S. Marinella is ideal if you want to go to the beach - if you have done Rome before. The beach is sandy ( unlike the rocky,pebbly one in Civitavecchia) but note the € 30 charge for an umbrella and 2 chairs. The cost is worthwhile if you plan to spend a day - or at least 4 hours there. The town is tidy and clean and can be seen to be the place for wealthier Italians to have holiday homes. Recommended for a quiet beach day

After 7 days in Rome and a loooooot of walking, we decided to end our trip in Italy with a day at the beach. Santa Marinella was the right pick for us. Our apartment was walking distance to Termini, 4.60€ and an hour later we were at the Santa Marinella train station, only a 5-minute walk from the beach. There are 2 trains per hour. Yes, it's a bit pricey but not more than any private beaches in Europe: 30€ for 3 chairs and an umbrella. Lots of locals, very clean beach with brown sand, cool sea, lots of sun. It's not the Carribeans but good enough. A beautiful day, easy, breezy!
