Tuscany isn’t really near the beaches – it is more inland. You could take a daytrip to Cinque Terre which is coastal (but this will be a long day depending on where in Tuscany you are).

Came to suggest Cinque Terre, it’s a magical place. Though the 5 towns don’t have long stretches of beaches, people still lay out, swim, go for boat rides. Monterosso al Mare has the biggest beach. It’s not in Tuscany, it’s in Liguria. But it’s not difficult to get there from Florence by train. We also considered Viareggio and ruled it out, but it might be more of what you are looking for. It’s closer to Florence than Cinque Terre. FYI Beaches are different than the US in that you must rent a lounge chair/umbrella and it can be kind of pricey!

There are so many AMAZING things to see in Tuscany, but it is not known for its beaches. If I wanted to do an Italian beach vacation, I’d probably go on a separate trip to either Sicily, Sardinia, or Positano. I wouldn’t combine Tuscany with any of those places unless I had 3-4 weeks.
