The town of Zadina, about two kilometers from the center of Cesenatico in a northern direction and on the border with the municipality of Cervia, is mainly a tourist area, but quiet at the same time, characterized by the pine forest close to the coastal line. The town of Ponente, adjacent to the nearby Zadina is principally a tourist area and is located in the west side of the Canal Harbour. It is distinguished by the wealth of green areas and high-level sports infrastructure such as the Waterpark Atlantica, the Tennis Club and the Sport Arena.
The territory of the two towns offers a wide beach of golden and fine sand, equipped with all services. The beach is close to the pinewood of Zadina, which offers shelter to those who do not want to return home in the hottest hours. Next to the long avenue of Ponente that runs along the sea, there are seaside "colonie", or summer camps, developed in the post-war period, many of which are still active today.
Summer is the ideal season to visit the resort Zadina-Ponente, when the beach is fully equipped and the bathing establishments offer a wide range of services. It is posssible to go for walks in the beautiful pinewood of Zadina or Public Park of Ponente in which there are entertainment areas and picnics, areas for children and paths walkable by bike or on foot.
The pinewood of Zadina is part of the "Nature Reserve Pineta di Ravenna" and has an extension of about 5 hectares covered by a forest of farnies, holm oaks, elms and alders. It is located close to the coastal strip at the extreme northern end of the territory of Cesenatico and offers trails that can be covered by bike or on foot to keep fit in the open air.
Do not miss two summer special events: "The Week" the International Festival of Street Dance, which takes place every year in July, where thousands of "Street Dancers", from all over the world will compete in all the disciplines of Hip Hop and the JU JU Memorial, the evening dedicated to the great drummer of Cesenatico Giulio Capiozzo, with the participation of internationally renowned jazz musicians. Every summer evening also the streets of the promenade will be enlivened by markets of various genres and handicrafts.
