Clean sea, safe for families, sensible prices in all the beachside cafes, a very low key but charming place in which to relax.

Althoug visiting the beach in June during the week (not high season and not weekends) it is completely full of people. The beach is extremely small. Not worth a visit.

This cape is one the most important for elban geology. Sitting on the beautiful and spectacular rocks (granite with giant minerals) and swimming in the cristalline water is priceless. Maybe busy during high season but surely worths.

This is the best beach I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. The area is just amazingly beautiful. There's a small sandy area that can be a little crowded. But a short walk away there are additional places to spread out on amazing seaside rock...More

We almost didn't have place for our umbrellas but all effort to come here worth. There are couple of park places around. Make sure you pay parking otherwise... Water is crystal clear and warm. Beach is just to small for everyone.
