At the far end of this beach there is sand in the sea, ideal for children to play. The beach is also not too crowded. It's also a great place for snorkeling! Parking is free for up to 3 hours.

Visited Elba for a few days and stayed in Portoferraio. Decided to take a bus trip to Cavo which took nearly 90 mins but well worth the visit to see more of this lovely island. Wish I had more time to stay, but will be...More

The sea bottom is covered with very fine silver powder that shines in the sun and creates amazing effects. Probably the sediment comes from local sources of pyrite but it is so unique and beautiful that in my opinion it makes this beach the most...More
