    Default Beaches of Elba

    I understand that the island of Elba has some great beaches. I am looking for sites that will give me further information on Elba. Perhaps someone in "Forum" has been there and can give me some general information about the beaches and the island itself. Appreciate your in put.

    Default Elba!

    Ciao again!

    Saw and replied to another of your questions just a little while ago saying you'll have 14+ days to explore Tuscany - and that would give you time to definitely explore Elba.
    You'd love Elba - it is just gorgeous!

    I've been there and truly loved it - but you definitely have to base yourself there for a few days, at least 5. It takes a few hours of ferry to get there and back, you can't do it as a day trip. I don't think you said exactly when you'll be coming to Tuscany next spring and this is important because Elba is pretty much closed for the season up until mid-April and even then it is low season. The season really picks up at the end of May when the sea and weather get warmer when it is gets perfect for swimming and snorkeling and more.

    To get a better idea in general of what you can find there, I'd recommend you take a look at Elba.org - it is a website maintained by a hotelier on the island so a lot of the recommendations are directly from the locals! There is a lot of information on the many small beaches you'll find there.
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.
