This area is linked to the ancient Pontedoro beach. It has interesting traditional ‘retoni’ or fishnets, cast along the Cornia River that originates on the left side of the beach. Here, you’ll find a small resort and bar. It can be reached by car or motorbike via an unpaved road coming off the geodetic base. Along the urban coast, you’ll find numerous small beaches like Sotto Bernardini and a beautiful square overlooking the sea called Piazza Bovio.
This mixed sand and pebble beach stretches along a small bay that breaks up a long, high coastline characterized by Mediterranean vegetation. It is very popular among young people during the week and is just about a 3-km drive from the down-town area. Visitors can park in the area overlooking the beach and take a five-minute trek to the shore. Public buses serve the area from Piombino (lines 3 and 2a). The beach hosts a small resort, bar and restaurant. It is also open in winter.
