Sottomarina is a frazione of Chioggia, occupying a sandbar 5.5 km long and up to 300 meters wide at the southern entrance to the Lagoon of Venice; a bridge connects it to Chioggia. The population of Sottomarina, about 25,000, with 60 hotels and 17 campgrounds, is almost entirely given over to seafront tourism.
