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.

Nice island with a fort on the top. Great view, especially the Costa Concordia, located 100m from the beach

Giglio is a very charming island with a lot of sights, good food and things to do, but in this review I will only focus on the possibility for a very nice day on the beach if you want to get away from the overcrowded mainland beaches. Take the ferry from Porto Santo Stefano (Euro 23 return) and hop on... More

Of course I want to say that I came here to view the costa Concordia wreckage. I did. It is horrific. But ht island is charming and I had a nice time collecting sea glass and having lunch. It was a nice ferry ride from Porto S Stefano. We did not ferry our car and wish we did to explore... More

Tickets round trip are 20 euros pp and the ferry ride is a beautiful slow ride that last about an hour. The ferry also transports cars if you want... More
