Have been visiting this beach for well over 10 years, but NEVER in summer when at 7 in the morning the few free parking places have already been taken [I refuse to pay for parking on Elba, against my principles, Ha!]]. Up until May or from mid September onwards is the best period to be here. Badenmeister Sauro is the... More

I've seen many of Elba beaches - this one is probably most beautiful. I'm afraid in summer, due to this, it may be too popular, but in September its heaven. If you don't like sand, you can go down from the road to the east side of the bay and bath from the stones, it is also good there:)

Fetovaia is beautiful, on the good days (make sure the wind comes from the north when you go) the water looks like a swimming pool, so clear!

no parking available or 16€ for a whole day. no space for free beach or not enough for the quantity of people who want to come there. If you want to have something to eat, or only an ice cream you need to line like in a bar at railway station.

Narrow road down to main prking is making it a bit ahrd to reach. Free parking for just couple of cars at the end of the road is waiting for you if you have luck. Anyway many private parkings are available. Beach if medium large with clean water and placed protected from open sea. If you visit Elba you should... More

Fetovaia is titled one of the nicest beaches in Western Elba. We expected a native beach but it is very touristic and with beach loungers + sun umbrellas too rent. Almost no place for free beach access. We rented a pedalo for one hour to escape from the crowds. Water close to the beach was not clear, but some 10... More

Lovely calm beach when the wind is right, otherwise head to the other side of the island. A few basic light eateries here.

This stunning island was a short stop for us on our world trip. Well, we wish we could have stayed longer. The beach is stunning, the bay is stunning, the water is breathtaking. We came here early because we wanted to enjoy the emerald waters and the relative peace you get in early spring. Last year we were there in... More

All the extreme west coast of the Elba Island is scenically valuable for the smooth white granite rocks that characterize it. In Fetovaia the intrusion (in remote geological times) of rocks of another kind has generated a pretty bay, particularly appreciable when the sea is rough, because the shelter offered against the waves. Of course, even a heavenly place like... More
