Spending a beach holiday in Tuscany is the best way to combine the desire to get to know new places with the need to spend a few hours traveling to reach the destination and meet unique places, of surprising Italian beauty to be rediscovered as the destination of choice.
For summer holidays
It is a niche destination within the Mediterranean basin, chosen by those who want to explore little-traveled routes, among placid strips of land, pristine waters and traditional flavors and quality recipes. For the Tours of Tuscany this is important.
Most beautiful beaches
Spiaggia di Cavoli: it is a long stretch of white sand not very wide, but able to welcome a large number of visitors every year and to cuddle them thanks to the whiteness of its colors and the clearness of its waters. It is located on the island of Elba, near the town of Campo nell'Elba, not far from Marina di Campo.
La Feniglia beach: a stretch of sandy and enchanting coastline surrounded by a protected nature reserve made of shrubs, pines and other specimens of typical Mediterranean vegetation. It is located in the strip of land that joins the Tuscan coast with the Argentario promontory. Not far from Porco Ercole, within the lagoon area of Orbetello.
Cala Violina: it is a corner of the coast enclosed by rocks and bushes of wild and impervious charm, belonging to the municipality of Scarlino, not far from the town of Castiglione della Pescaia. This is a beach where you can regain contact with nature and relax away from the crowd.
Spiaggia delle Ghiaie: on the island of Elba, near the town of Portoferraio, this bay is the ideal destination to spend holidays in the most beautiful Tuscan sea there is. Crystal clear water, soft sand and many equipped establishments where you can relax and enjoy every comfort. In the Private Tours of Tuscany these options are perfect.
3 places to see
The island of Capraia: in the province of Livorno, the island of Capraia has volcanic origins that give it a rugged and rocky profile with cliffs overlooking the sea.
The island of Giglio: it is an island that is an integral part of the municipality of Grosseto that hides wonderful ravines, among cyclamens, maritime pines and Mediterranean scrub.
The Etruscan coast: a coastal area that goes from around Livorno to Piombino where there are archaeological areas that testify to the presence of the Etruscans in the past, including the parks of Val di Cornia and the charming village of Populonia.
Organizing a beach holiday in Tuscany means essentially dedicating oneself to wellness and relaxation, between swimming along the coast, walks by the sea, admiring the sun setting behind the Maremma hills. There are many islands to visit, thanks to sailing excursions, or cultural itineraries in the hinterland, in search of solitary villages where time passes slowly.
Flavors not to be missed
Beach holidays in Tuscany are the ideal solution for those who want to discover new places without going too far, taking a dip even in unique and refined flavors, which will give the trip a touch of gluttony. Tuscan cuisine is rich in rustic flavors, including meat, cured meats and wine. But there is no shortage of seafood recipes such as the caciucco from Livorno, the stockfish alla riese, the gurguglione (a vegetable-based dish) or the crush.
