“San Vincenzo”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

San Vincenzo has expanded their marina in order to provide not only upscale docks for small to medium/large boats, but also to provide a promenade for the city that is appealing to tourists and locals alike. Although there are many nearby islands, ferries are docked in the larger port of Piombino. Placed on the levy is a playful sculpture of a sailor which has become the logo for the town.
The new promenade is landscaped and has a number of shops and restaurants most of which are open only during the warm weather months. There is even a hair dresser, Barbara Unisex Styling where you can drop in or make an appointment for everything from a massage to a great new hair style. You can also shop for clothes and trendy household items.
Private beach clubs and public beaches line the coast and there is a beautiful long distance view of the landmark Villa de Stefano.
August 15 is the feast of the Assumption and peak season. Fireworks are set off over the water and you can view them comfortably from popular waterfront restaurants.
The only flaw in the design is the triangular common area which is lacking in large shade trees which are sorely missed in the heat of a Mediterranean summer.
