The unique variety of Argentario’s coastline creates different settings which make this maritime environment an interesting home to rare underwater species, tempting scuba divers and marine specialists to amply explore the area.
This fairy-tale marine world offers exciting underwater opportunities, even once you leave the headland of Argentario and move along the Maremma coast toward characteristic beaches like Macchiatonda, la Torba, Chiarone and Capalbio. Surrounded by a rich, woodsy area, these localities are known for their wide dunes whose quasi black sand offsets the sparkling sea.
In the area’s small, well-equipped touristic ports, such as Talamonaccio, Foce dell'Albegna and Santa Liberata, guests can enjoy a relaxing stop before moving on to the larger port towns of Monte Argentario and Talamone.
Guests to the port like to take a leisurely walk along the market stalls where they can buy fresh fish or take a boat ride to Giglio island and Giannutri. Even Porto Ercole, known for its efficient services, remains a top-notch spot during the summer season. Packed with restaurants, boutiques and unique clubs, vibrant Porto Ercole offers refined entertainment. On the dock side, there are restaurants, shops for a lively and refined social life. Avantguard at its best, Cala Galera is a modern marina, famous for its elegant clubs and superb restaurants.
In Santo Stefano, Porto del Valle is more protected, less windy than Porto vecchio. It encludes the dock of the Yacht Club where you can moor your boat (otherwise there's the main port). If you stop in Porto Santo Stefano, you'll see the little centre developped around the old harbour. If you walk along the jetty you can reach Porto Nuovo, animated by the fishing boats and the ferries for Giglio and Giannutri islands.
