On the 30th of June, just a week before the well know Pink Night which celebrates the best of the Riviera, you can enjoy the “blue night”(Molo street parade -Notte Azzurra), which means entertainment from dusk to late night with music and grilled fish from the Adriatic sea.
This (oily) fish has even been recommended by the Food Standard Agency as it very good for health because of its richness in Omega3.
Described as “one of the finest and most modern in the Mediterranean” and certainly not
lacking in appeal, Rimini Marina lies to the left of the port entrance. It covers an area of 100.000 mq and has 622 moorings.
Its most striking element is an elevated walkway 1300 metres long leading to a restaurant with a terrace overlooking the sea. It was not designed exclusively for boat owners and people working at the port, just the opposite. It is a place open to everybody and is a venue for many events. A sight not to be missed: close by in Via Fantini near the quay there is a fisherman’s house completely covered in shells.
The grandfather of the present owner used to sell shellfish and finding himself with a large quantity of scallop and cockleshells he decided to use them to decorate his house.
And it it right in this area, in Rimini harbour area, along the channel, that will take place the first edition of the Molo Street Parade where moored fishing boats will turn into a sort of floating “console”, with music performances by DJ sets. While on land, along the pier from the lighthouse until the restaurant Rock Island, there will be stands with tasting of the typical Adriatic seafood.
