Lovely clear water, silky sand, friendly locals and a good restaurant on the beach. We stayed on the island for 3 days in June and it was just perfect. Make sure you book a nice room since some locals still offer rudimentary accomodation. The seaside at Giglio Campese is by far my favourite.

Love Isola del Giglio! I got proposed there! I also had a boat ride with my fiancee before he proposed me on a pristine and lonely beach. We got to surround the island and see the magical sunset. The beaches are amazing!

Beautiful, small island. Easy connection with Porto Santo Stefano. In June was no crowdy. The best choise to stay is Porto Giglio, there is also small sandy public beach next to the port. Several good restaurants and bars. The city, what should be visited is Castello - the old castel city on the mountan. Good place to enjoy fresh fish... More

Without exception one of the high moments of my recent trip. We hiked to the Casello at the top of the town. Had some much needed water and a glass of the local wine. Then took the bus to the beach ( accidentally). Had a sandwich and sat on the beach and enjoyed the moment. Did some shopping had a... More

Really lovely. Beautiful bay near Giglio ferry stop, clear blue sea and clean beach. The small internet cafe at the port on the island also had very tastey vegetarian salads for lunch.

Giglio Island is a small gem in Tuscany. Small, not too touristic, crystal water, friendly local people and a lot of things to do. There are not many sand beaches, however it makes sense to rend a boat and anchor in one of many beautiful “calles”. Very relaxing and beautiful place. Recommended for a weekend out of Rome.

It`s quite easy to reach the island by ferry operating from Porto S.Stefano. The fare is not cheap, but the one hour journey is lovely and memorable. The Porto Giglio is a nostalgic place, not overcrowded in September sunny days. It`s a good idea to spend an interesting day hanging around the narrow streets.

Beautiful crystal clear waters at Cannelle beach. The walk there from the port is gorgeous with picture moments every minute. The snorkeling was amazing because the water is so clear. There are little sparkles of sand in the water that make it even more spectacular. Paradise. :)

Giglio is about an hour on the Maregiglio or Toremar ferries from Porto Santo Stefano on Monte Argentario. It's a tiny lump of rock in the sea off the coast of Italy and famous for the appalling sinking of the Costa Concordia cruise line. This latter, now uprighted, can still be seen as the ferry sails into the harbour. A... More

Lovely hours boat trip from Porto Santo Stefano, passing the tragic Costa Concordia. The Port of Giglio is a delightful place to while away a few hours, particularly if you have the sun.
