We enjoyed the crystal clear water and silvery streaks in the sand. A great place to relax in and out of the water. It was quiet but not deserted when we were there, but I believe it gets crowded in high season. Traveled June 2017.

Water clear and blue. Restaurants not far away. The fact that it's a pebble beach gives me mixed feelings. The kids prefer the sand but the lack of cleaning up that sand is great.

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.

We spent a day on this beach on recent trip to Elba. Water was very nice, very quiet beach with sense of community. Being very close to the town with restaurants and bars for lunch and after was a big plus.

At the north eastern end of Elba, easily accessable by road and a short path lies this beach of sand pebbles and huge vulcanic rocks. We were almost completely alone, just an Italian couple who only moved their sunbeds to catch the warming rays of...More
