Photo and description
Laguna del Mort is located in the north-east of the Venetian lagoon, in the resort town of Lido di Jesolo. Until October 5, 1935, what is today called Laguna del Mort was the last stretch of the Piave River before it flows into the Adriatic Sea. And on that day, as a result of an unusually high rise in the water level, the river overflowed its banks and changed the direction of the current, rushing to the sea. Its new mouth was located 3 km south of the old one, and access to the old channel was blocked by tons of mud and silt. The last section of the Piave river thus was deprived of constant access to fresh water and was filled only during high tides. This is how Laguna del Mort was born.
Today, this lagoon, spread over an area of over 125 hectares, is a natural habitat for numerous species of seabirds. It consists of sand dunes, and its shores are overgrown with seaside pines, which have formed the ecosystem characteristic of coastal flora and fauna.
The main aquatic plant species in Laguna del Mort are seagrass and various algae. To the southeast are reed bogs, and the former bed of the Piave River is home to evergreen shrubs with tough leaves and small blue or white flowers. The coastal dunes are distinguished by an artificially created forest consisting of seaside pines, juniper, European sverbyge and sandy reeds at the water's edge.
As for the wild inhabitants of Laguna del Mort, there are hares, weasels, European green toads, green lizards, copperheads, snakes, mallards, teal, whistle and red-headed duck. In addition, nightingale warblers, sea plovers and striped warblers nest in the lagoon. Wasp-eaters and red herons can sometimes be seen.
In 2011, Laguna del Mort was named one of the 11 most beautiful beaches in Italy by the Italian League for Conservation of Nature.
