(4.6/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)

  • Small beach accessible by a path that connects it to the main road, with the right lighting conditions the water color is gorgeous, there's sand but rocks!

  • Located in a very natural and beautiful area really still while being very close to Porto Ferraio; not too spoilt by buildings and traffic you will find this small but beautiful Pebble Beach, a beautiful blue sea and a steep cliffs behind. For those looking for an angle of Elba still natural without having to wane with a liana like Tarzan. In summer can be a destination for many looking for the beautiful sea and the liberty might be more crowded than you would like but remains one of the best beaches of the island

  • The most beautiful beach, a little wild. The seabed to Samson is spectacular, it feels like swimming in an aquarium with hundreds of glances and salps near shore. With my Gopro I did clips and photos.

  • 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.
