Lignano Sabbiadoro  is a seaside resort located on the Adriatic Sea coast of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, in the North-Eastern part of Italy.
It is one of favored summer holiday retreats of the Germans and Swiss in the near-by north, who come for the pristine beaches, active nightlife, and culture.
The municipality is divided into three different districts:
- Riviera the western part of the peninsula is predominantly residential, with small villas, and low rise condos set amongst pine trees.
- Pineta right in the centre of the town, features a modest commercial center, popular beaches, and a plethora of night life venues.
- Sabbiadoro at the Eastern end of the peninsula, contains a bustling commercial center, soaring high rise condominiums and yet even more nightlife and cultural venues than Pineta.
