Difficult to park close to the beach but with nice sand and a great bar close to the beach. The water is very shallow so it’s a good place for games in the water and good for small kids.

Rather busy beach 15 minutes from Portoferraio, must plan to arrive before 10AM otherwise the nearest parking available will be at least 1-2 km on foot. Lots of families with small children, but all rather friendly. The sea is just fantastic: the water is turquoise,...More

Nice place but hell of cars around, spent a day to find some parking (but on the road, not real one). All "offical" parking not available or already full at 10:00 in the morning. Beach ok for kids, sand and restorants near by.

We were a small group of painters who with the help of our Italian speaking teacher found this place, and absolutely fell in love with the scenery, the food, the food and all. June is a peaceful month and not too hot.
