The Tomboli di Cecina Nature Reserve is located in Marina di Cecina and includes the Tomboli, long cords of dunes covered by dense vegetation that from the beach, go towards the interior of the coastal strip and represent a characteristic ecosystem created to defend the areas grown by sea winds.
The Reserve, which stretches for 15 kilometers, is one of the most beautiful Italian forests, rich in dense and varied vegetation that differs as you move inland from the sea. On the beach the lily and the sea poppy bloom, while in the low scrub junipers grow and in the high scrub oaks, maritime pines and domestic pines prevail.
The Reserve offers shelter to various species of animals: wild rabbits, foxes, weasels, porcupines, roe deer and badgers. Among the birds are the turtledoves, the green woodpeckers, the hoopoes and the wood pigeons, which stop here for long periods of time.
