Spiaggia Di Sansone, Portoferraio

4.6
#1 of 157 in Beaches in Tuscany
Against a backdrop of lush green cliffs, the turquoise waters at Spiaggia Di Sansone contrast with the white of the pebble beach. Descend a slightly steep path to reach the sheltered cove. Beware of jellyfish, although the water is so clear they can be seen easily. To visit Spiaggia Di Sansone and other attractions in Portoferraio, use our Portoferraio trip planner .

  • The most beautiful beach I have seen on the island of Elba and certainly the clearest sea I've ever seen. The beach has white stones of medium size, so if you love sand is not for you. The path to reach it there is a breathtaking view. In this regard, coming from the main road and follow the dirt road, the first beach that you will see is not Samson but the source (also very good). To Samson get there continuing along the trail or circumventing the rocks from the source, walking in water (more or less comes to mid-calf). It is not very big and it's pretty crowded. There is also the possibility to rent beach umbrellas and sun beds at prices not quite modest compared to services offered (absent showers for example). The bar ends the food in no time, if you settle for finger sandwiches wrapped is fine, but you better bring you food. Poorly suited to families with small children and strollers, I assume it's pretty uncomfortable. I hope that you will not find the coconut seller more harassing than ever, which is touched to us: 2 m 2 meter moves in, remaining stationary in a chant jibberish unbearable for 5 minutes. Last but not least: careful where you park! I got a ticket for having invaded involuntarily rut head and shoulders.

  • Amazing Beach and Caribbean Sea, an essential stop for visitors to the island, a bit crowded in the middle period of August but worth it

  • My favourite beach on Elba!
  • By far my favorite Beach on Elba! This year we were able to live it in June ... the impression of being somewhere out of this world! Intense colors thanks to the contrast of the sea with the white pebbles!
