out of all the beaches we visited this was our favorite, not so much because of of its lovely golden sand, it has none since it is comprised of smooth bleached white rocks, but because it is achingly beautiful.

The Spiaggia di Sansone is a little hard to get to. Parking is by side of road and then you have to walk down a paved road for about 250 metres and then a rough track to get to the beach. You could drive to this track to offload passengers, but then you would need to park the car on... More

I went to Elba every years since 2000 and I have always been there . The problem is the parking if you go by car (not for motorcycle), but it's still worth trust me.

Ordinary place. Had to borrow a key from campsite to get there. Water clear but ive seen better. Water full of stinging jellyfish. Not a nice place. Would never go back. Biodola is way better with all the amenities necessary.

Water was the clearest we have seen on any of our travels - including our home Australia. Plenty to do for children - swimming/snorkelling/diving off rocks. A must see!

Overcrowded in high season, at its best in May or June, this gravel beach awaits you after a relatively tough downhill. From the top the view is breathtaking. Once there the crystal clear water a great reward fot the slog. Go there early and enjoy.

For sure the best beach that i visited during my vacation into Elba island. The water is green/blue and the contrast with the white of the stones is very amazing. the way to arrive to beach allow to see the very impressive landscape and to take very nice pictures.
