Thank you for logging on to our site, we’re happy to give you some important info about our beach.
Beach 96 is open daily from 9.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m., during these hours all our amenities are in full function.
For your safety and maximum security the daily “Lifeguard Service” controls the sea in front of our lido, the Lifeguards are especially trained and well experienced, they can be recognised by the “Salvataggio” slogan on their T shirts.
They use special red-coloured rafts and supervise the sea from their watchtowers.
We would like to remind you however that sea bathing should be made at least 4 hours after having eaten since a too full a stomach may cause sudden faintness which could be dangerous in the water.
The beach in Cattolica is protected by breakwaters, at “Beach 96” the distance between the shore and the breakwaters is about 50 metres, in this area the sea is calm and perfectly safe for all, children included. The shore shelves gradually towards the open sea and you can reach the breakwaters on foot. The signposts in the water with the writing “Pericolo Acqua Alta” warn you that the water there is deep and only for better swimmers. There are also warning flags on the beach, when the flag is red, bathing is not advisable.
The “Publiphono” service is available from 9.30 a.m. to 6.30 a.m.;
it’s a megaphone service and is mainly used for “lost children”. Contact the bathing attendant if you’ve lost or found a child! Beach 96 has an immediate interphone connection with the service.
“Beach 96” has a regular “First Aid Box” to cope with the less serious injuries such as small wounds, insect bites, jellyfish and sea urchin burns. For serious problems the emergency service 118 is on call.
For our guests’ recreation, on the seashore, weather permitting, row boats and pedal boats for hire. These are safe and unsinkable and are allowed to go a maximum distance of 300 metres from the shore.
Beach 96 is the first lido in Cattolica to have a webcam, giving you the possibility to observe the beach from home and decide at the last minute whether to book a weekend or a few days by the sea.
