Cala Violina, Scarlino

3.8
#1 of 132 in Outdoors in Province of Grosseto
A 15-minute walk through the Tuscan forest will take you to Cala Violina, a small cove known for its calm, transparent water and alabaster sand. Opening into the heart of the Natural Preserves of Scarborough, the cove is sandwiched between two evergreen headlands that block the waves, making for great snorkeling. You can't get to the cove by car, but you can rent a bike in the summer. The 2 km (1.2 mi) path is easily walkable, too.

  • The beach is beautiful: great overlooking great, a little crowded in August. Nice also the path to get there (to do only by mountain bike or on foot). Bella is also the picnic area. Advice on forest road for those who like to go mountain biking.

  • To visit this beach you must become a bit of a walk but, in my view, is also its strength. Located in a secluded cove is very popular with tourists in the summer months but can be visited, in fact I recommend you do it, throughout the year. Its location also very sheltered from the wind allows you to enjoy an excellent climate even in winter and the walk that you need to do to get to the beach can be a stimulus for sports; Besides the beauty of the Bay even the way that you can do to reach it is very nice and impressive, if you don't feel like walking I would advise you to leave your car at the port of Marina di Scarlino and walk to the beach, you won't regret it ( of course shoes and no slippers or flip flops, you will walk on a gravel road)

  • Beautiful beach reachable after having parked the car in a car park. The walk takes about 20 minutes and quite tiring, but worth it. Crystal clear water.
