Spiaggia di Sansone, Portoferraio
(4.6/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Really, really beautiful! A bit tiring to get there ... you have to make 10 minute walk uphill to the mountain and the road ahead is not the best ... but upon arrival you will see that this place is magical!

  • Most amazing beach i have ever seen!!! Unfortunately a lot of people...
  • According to me is the most beautiful beach of elba ... you reach the parking lot with a narrow path and bumpy, difficult to those who want to get to the beach with the stroller. 10 minutes walk and you will get on this corner of paradise. EC public beach and equipped with deck lounges and bars for bath it is possible to access the campsite paying € 1, input

  • The most beautiful of the island! Beautiful beach but in August super crowded. There are both shores that the free beach. To find parking you must arrive early in the morning, Cost10 € all day. Can be reached along a dirt path about 15 minutes ... maybe not suitable at all for this

  • Amazing. Approaching along a path a little steep. The Pebble Beach has some amazing colors. Recommended to arrive early to enjoy the place. The BAR is there but not provided, the bare minimum. There are no bathrooms.

  • Spectacular unique coloured Cove on Elba. Smooth white pebbles that are perfect for a thermal path and blue green water of advertising. Two flaws: the path to reach it is not simple and dangerous with children and there is a bathroom. You have to go to camping close to a euro. The sea was very choppy and after one meter deep.
