Sea and beaches
The sea which is considered one of the most beautiful coastlines in Italy is just a few minutes away by car. Punta Ala, Torre Civetta, Follonica, Castiglione della Pescaia, Piombino and Baratti are destinations that are easy to reach and have wide beaches and shady, fragrant pine woods such as Casetta Civilini, Torre Mozza, Prato Ranieri, il Parco Costiero della Sterpaia or lovely rock coves: Le Rocchette and la Buca delle Fate. The Argentario promontory with its beaches and small ports which attracts visitors from all over the world (Porto Ercole, Porto Santo Stefano, Talamone) can be reached in just an hour, while just 30 minutes away lies the new tourist port of Etruria Marina in Portiglioni di Scarlino. Ferries to the islands of Elba, Giglio, Corsica, Capraia, Giannutri and Pianosa are just 40 minutes away to the north (Piombino) and to the south in Porto Santo Stefano. Sailing times vary from around 1 hour for Elba to 3 hours for Corsica.
