Punta Falcone

Broom, phillyrea, rock roses and hotten-figs are brush strokes on the blue background of the sea

Punta Falcone Park, set between the Gulf of Salivoli and Cala Moresca, offers routes of natural and historical interest. The Park, dense with vegetation, where colonies of seagulls and cormorants live, is bordered by the Piombino promontory, the bedrock that connects Populonia and the Gulf of Baratti with an enchanting trail through Spiaggia Lunga, Cala San Quirico and Buca delle Fate. Punta Falcone has breathtaking views and is also a park which in springtime blooms into an oasis of perfumes and colours. An astronomical observatory run by the Piombino Amateur Astronomers' Association organizes conferences and sky observation events in the centre of Populonia.
