    To get there is to take a walk of about 20-30 minutes and I promise you made in August under the Sun is not a piece of cake, but once you arrive at your destination the panorama and the clear water repay for all the work done! I would recommend getting a pair of trainers to make the path to get there: we did in flip-flops, but I admit that with shoes would have been much, much better! Another tip is to bring the mask, preferably with mouthpiece: the underwater landscape is beautiful. You stand on the rocks of the sea, you don't expect sandy or Rocky. Important: If you want to take a bath, check first that the sea is choppy, otherwise it is impossible to swim, because dangerous; If the sea is flat as we found ourselves, is a really great place to stay!

    Beautiful and unspoilt beach. To get there it takes about 20 minutes to walk in the middle of a thicket that with many "ups and downs" allows you to access the beach from different points. Bring comfortable shoes for walking and be prepared for a bit of a pain to get there, but be warned that it's worth thinking. If you suffer from too much sun bring an umbrella or something to make up for that because it is not a real beach but a cliff from where easy access to the sea. In this sense, forget about the comfort of the classic beaches. Therefore, even a good pair of shoes sea wouldn't hurt. Also I recommend bringing fins, mask and snorkel to enjoy the sea floor once in the water.

    Parked the car along a path of about half an hour to get to a breathtaking view of the sea from which we proceed to a very dangerous and difficult descent to go. Joints in the Bay you can see that's completely rocky, so it is difficult to place parasols and towels. A word of advice: be organized and minute goggles, masks, fins, sneakers and slippers for rocks, food, stuoglie, water and everything you need. The water is crystal clear, the bottom you can see with the naked eye, there are a lot of fish and of course many rocks on which one must be particularly careful not to slip and injure themselves. I highly recommend coming to this Cove if you're young and willing to make a route heavy enough to but well worth the trip. Definitely a place for enthusiasts.

  • Amazing place where to see a very beautiful sea.
  • Long trail and the end of it you get see hole of the Fairies
  • Really good viewpoint!
  • At the junction of several paths, a landscape that has no equal in Tuscany. The stain, the Elbe, the bleachers overlooking the sea moving. It is not a beach, and is not equipped for it. Take, for what it is, not for what one would claim it was. Then at least the bathroom try to go there first. bring more water than necessary, be civil and use the bins. The remains of the Etruscan village could do with some polishing, are disappearing between Earth and leaves.

  • Beautiful beach in rocks. Suggestive. Nice walk in the Woods to go to reach the beach. Just minutes from Populonia. Highly recommended
