We had lunch at the restaurant right next to the beach and the dip after lunch was a real treat. its a very small beach and coming from Asia, we are more used to white sand beaches than pebbles, while it was not so easy to walk on those hot pebbles but for those of you who have tried the... More

Beautiful beach to visit at sunset although quite small and may get crowded during the day. Perfect for that romantic "selfie" moment!

My review refers specifically to the short, scenic stretch of beach which is north of the Marciana Marina port, and which is partially occupied by the "Bagni Capo Nord" bathhouse (also the nearby restaurant has the same name, but apparently it belongs to a different management). It's true, as many reviewers have written, that the big granite pebbles on the... More

Really beautiful beach at Marciana Marina on Elba island. Really nice, close to all amenities and restaurants! Great to swim, snorkel and eat fresh local fish! Look forward to swim daily next time!

We were pleasantly surprised to come across this pretty, peaceful beach. It is a perfect place to grab some lunch and relax for an hour or two.

Stopped here on our way to the cabinavia at Monte Catanne. It is an energetic and lovely seaside town. There are many cafes along the picturesque water front to enjoy a coffee,drink or meal. The market was in session the day we were there and that was fun.

This is a high end area of Elba, quite lovely but pricey. Not some place we would want to stay but enjoyed looking around. Traffic is very heavy as the road to the ferries goes through the town.

Joined four other kayakers at Marciana Marina to paddle around Elba over six days. We carried all of our food and accommodation in the Kayaks, camping on remote beaches. We were lead by Gau from Sea Kayak Italy. Highly recommended for experienced sea kayakers.

mare molto bello, a chi piace essere stivato some una sardina tra ombrelloni e sdraio forse puo piacere. Peccato che i signori gestori sono estremamente scortesi, tutt'altro che adatti a gestire questo bel posto. Se ci andate fateci sapere il vostro parere :-) Beautiful sea, lovely place, warm water in july. For those of you searching for a relaxing place,... More
