We went here in October and there were almost no visitors on the Island. We parked on the side of the road and took a little hike to the beach. The last 50 yards was a rutted dirt path, definitely rugged terrain. The rocks were...More

La Sorgente Sansone is the best beach on Elba island: picturesque location and really warm water – what else is needed. However, bear in mind that you have to overcome many-many steps to get down to the beach. Also, it gets crowded quite fast, so...More

Great for snorkelling and so worth the hike, kids were never out of the water. Fishes were swimming all around you.

Tricky hike down a rocky path to reach this secluded beach. There is a small concession stand that rents chairs and umbrellas-- no restrooms. It is a rocky beach of white stones. The water was beautiful.

As all of the beaches in this part, it is really beautiful with white stones and turquoise water. Although it is quite a long walk to reach it, the beach is crowded. If you wish to have a little bit more privacy, continue to beach...More
