Best Places to Stay near the Beach
The stunning diversity along the Tuscany coastline gives guests the opportunity to savor a wide range of experiences, many of which include the crystal clear waters, sandy beaches, and warm Mediterranean sun. Combine all of this with the classical elements of Tuscany, including its wine, history, art and good food, and make for an excellent holiday base. We know, for some it will be where it is along the coast and for others, you are looking for the services.
As you run your finger down the coast of Tuscany you will start in the north and Versilia, with modern towns that boast an active social life and organized beaches, complete with umbrellas, lounge chairs, and changing areas. As you move further south, in the Etruscan strongholds of Populonia and Gulf of Baratti you come in contact with award-winning sandy beaches, a mix of paid and public beaches, and famous ports for sailing. At the southernmost tip of the Tuscan coast, you will have entered into the wildlife preserve and rugged lonely seas, where the water is the color of aquamarine and the only sound you hear are the waves lapping up in the Maremma.
