These amazing backdrops are heaven for those that love nautical sports and scuba diving.
Cavo is the nearest village on Elba to Piombino, and is easy to reach by hydrofoil and by ferry.

The natural channel between Elba and the coast of mainland Tuscany creates wind currents, meaning that the sea is always perfect for sail boating. It is no surprise that this village is home to an excellent tourist port and a yacht club that organises courses and excursions for aspiring sailors (young and old).

CULTURE
Nearby you can visit Etruscan and Roman remains and though Napoleon may not have left traces in the area of his Elban exile, a plaque reminds us of the time spent here by the Hero of the Two Worlds: Garibaldi stopped right here on this beach (the one shown in the photo) while he was travelling towards Caprera in 1849.

SUITABILITY
The perfect place for those who love quite walks and trekking, of varied levels of difficulty, thanks to the many routes that run through the maquis shrubland (macchia mediterranea) without ever losing sight of the sea.
Excellent restaurants and pizzerias, shops for all your needs. All “at your fingertips” for an unforgettable holiday.

INFORMATION
Cavo, a small sea resort, lies at the foot of Mount Grosso, in front of the small islands of Palmaiola and Cerboli.

This beautiful place is characterised by the long and vast sandy beach, bordered by the small peninsula of Capo Castello. The turquoise blue sea waters are in stark contrast to the green of the pine trees that cover the hills right up to Capo Castello. Once upon a time this was home to Cala Volbiana, where ships landed ever since ancient times.

A different scene every day. In Elba, you can choose between cliffs, rocks, or sand beaches. The sand varies in color from white to gold to red to black. The rocks? They range from gravel to stones to steep cliffs.driven by the thrill of exploration, you can conquer the wild coves of the Innamorata and Calanova, reachable only by boat. Maybe you’re inclined to try windsurfing in Chiessi, or perhaps you want to relax on the beach, lulled by magical light dancing across clear waters. There are so many things to do and see!
The Island of Elba has something for everyone. It is a fabulous host and will satisfy the desires of every visitor. Elba invites you to envelope and rejuvenate yourself in her vibrant spirit.

Leave the grey behind and dive into the colors of “isola Elba.” Gaze up at the sky in Elba on a winter’s day and you will be amazed at the vibrancy of the colors that are the essence of this island. From the flaming dawn of Rio Marina to the northeastern blue skies on a windy day to the sunsets of Pomonte, every day is unique and spectacular. The color palette of Elba, Tuscany is infinite.
