The commune occupies a peninsula (litorale del Cavallino) which divides the Venetian Lagoon from the Adriatic Sea. The river Sile forms the north-eastern boundary with the comune of Jesolo. The comune is composed of several boroughs, including Cavallino, Treporti, Punta Sabbioni and others.
Every year, about 6 million of visitors choose Cavallino Treporti for their holidays so the economy of the town is mostly based on tourism, in specific, summer tourism. Thanks to the large number of the visitors, Cavallino is the second most popular seaside resort in Italy. The beach is 15 km long and near the seaside there are about 30 villages-camps. The hotels are full of tourists from Northern Europe - Germany, Austria, Denmark. In the summer days that aren't suitable for bathing, the tourists usually go to Venice and to the islands of the Venetian lagoon (Burano, Torcello, Murano) The islands are easily accessible with boats that leave from Punta Sabbioni terminal and from Treporti-Ricevitoria.
