“Giro Isola d' Elba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Joined four other kayakers at Marciana Marina to paddle around Elba over six days. We carried all of our food and accommodation in the Kayaks, camping on remote beaches. We were lead by Gau from Sea Kayak Italy.
Highly recommended for experienced sea kayakers.

“Posto bello, peccato per i gestori Nice place, pity about the people running the place. Nice village on the whole, worth visiti”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

mare molto bello, a chi piace essere stivato some una sardina tra ombrelloni e sdraio forse puo piacere. Peccato che i signori gestori sono estremamente scortesi, tutt'altro che adatti a gestire questo bel posto. Se ci andate fateci sapere il vostro parere :-)

Beautiful sea, lovely place, warm water in july. For those of you searching for a relaxing place, tightly packed like a sardine on a beach full of tightly packed umbrellas shading you from the sun and the amazing view it may be ideal. Pity the staff is rude and not what I find relaxing. Maybe they have burnout. Just a little further along you will find a beautiful little beach. To reach it you must wade through leg-deep water for 10meters and you have a beautiful spot with a choice of natural shade from an indent in the mountain and sun, lovely, small, black pebbles to relax on and inviting clear, warm water away from the chaos of the beach and with a magic look out onto the sea.

The village is lovely, lots of good places to eat good food and ice cream. If you need a supermarket search for the conad where locals shop and the prices are in line with national supermarkets. Scooter rental, rubber dingy rental, trips on a red boat that shows you the bottom of the sea, the fish... Have fun!

“A smallboatong beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

The beach was mainly used for sail courses but was available for bathing too. What I disliked is the presence of glss in the sand and of dogs everywhere.
