Not far from the Lunigiana you can find other special kinds of honey like the organic "miele di spiaggia", with its unique seaside aroma. It's produced in the coastal park of Migliarino di S. Rossore Massacciucoli. The bees are kept in wooden beehives, which are spread out across the sand and naturally protected by the dunes. The area surrounding the hives is quite uncontaminated and rich in Mediterranean vegetation.
Thanks to its climate and rich vegetation, the mountainous area in Alta Versilia and the Regional Park of the Apuan Alps is also famous for its honey. Melata di Abete honey has a much darker colour. It’s flavour is similar to balsamic and it isn’t as sweet as other honeys.
