Fishermen, amateur or expert, will love the clear waters of Elba Island, whose pristine sea beds teem with myriad species of fish. You should check the rules and regulations and only fish in the areas allowed by the Harbour Authority; fishing is not allowed in port areas or in the waters in front of the Le Ghiaie and Le Viste beaches as they are part of the Dello Scoglietto organic protection zone.
From stopping by Cala San Francesco to sunbathing in the tiny cove of Zurletto, swimming to the smaller Zurlettino, a paradise for scuba divers, sailing off Capraia is a summer holiday never to be forgotten. Linger longer over just-caught seafood washed down with Tuscany’s favourite coastal white wine Vermentino for a taste of the sea after all that exertion. Cala Rossa is a must: it’s blood-red cliffs makes it one of the most striking bays.
