Beaches in the Tuscan Maremma

160 km of coast, made up of a multitude of landscapes, is bathed by the sea of the Maremma, one of the cleanest in Italy. Long stretches of fine sandy beaches alternate with bluffs jutting out over the sea, wild, magical little bays, private beach clubs, public beaches, picturesque islets, seaside towns, tourist havens and fascinating seabeds.


Beaches at Castiglione della PescaiaCastiglione della Pescaia beach sits right in front of the town and is a sandy beach (private and public) with shallow waters, stretching out from the foot of the Aragonese castle across to the Baia delle Rocchette protected by a little promontory upon which the castle is perched. This last section is known as Le Rocchette beach. South of the river there are 5 kilometres of public beach popular with kite-surf enthusiasts. The beaches of Punta Ala can also be easily reached from Castiglione della Pescaia by hiring small boats or dinghies from the town boatyard and its seashore consists of a tiny beach to the left of the port and a sandy beach several kilometres long, not too large and entirely sheltered by the pine forest. There are also daily ferry crossings from Castiglione della Pescaia port to Giglio. Daily ferry crossings depart from Piombino to Elba.



South of Castiglione della Pescaia is the often windswept Talamone beach, which makes it just the place for sail-powered sports (kitesurfing, windsurfing). The picturesque cove below the fortress, surrounded by wild vegetation, is known as the “Bagno delle donne" with a pebble beach flanked by a bluff and a very interesting seabed.





With its lagoon and Giannella and Feniglia beaches, two sandy beaches with private beach clubs and long stretches of public beach, Orbetello looks out from the foot of the Argentario promontory. Feniglia beach sits in front of a nature reserve, splendid coastal pine forest, which can be walked or cycled entirely and where it's not a rare occurrence to run across deer. Continuing southwards we come to the splendid, towering Argentario promontory which is home to the towns of Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano.You can hire a dinghy or boat and sail around the promontory to be amazed by the many coves that you come across (each more beautiful than the last).

Off the coast of Ansedonia we find the tiny marine reserve of Giannutri famous for the rare beauty of its seabed, a real paradise for divers and keen snorkellers.
