“SHHHHH..dont tell everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

If u want to stay away from the typical sea side place and you like a nice walk, then you should try this one out. After 15min walk in a nice enviroment you will fid yourself in a very nice beach with blue water. If you find yourself in Tuscany ( not in August!!!! Too many peole) during summer you should go and check.

“Snorkling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Definitely worth the 2 km hike (or mountain bike) from the parking lot to the beach (we parked off the main road between Castiglione and Follonica, before the turn off to Punta Ala if you come from Follonica). Bring water/food as there is nothing there. Great snorkling on the north side of the beach (see picture) ! No bathrooms either..

“Very nice beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

A little nice beach with clear water. Be careful: after the parking, you have to walk 1,5 km, and the beach can be crowded.
