Spiaggia di Sansone – It is between Capo Blanco and Capo Enfola (two other places to see during a trip on the island). It is very quiet, a white sand, half-moon shaped beach, the sea is clear and transparent. Exactly what you expect from the beaches of Elba.
Spiaggia Padulella – Two white rock promontories protect the beach. The color of the sand emphasizes turquoise and blue nuances of the sea. Moreover, the beach of Padulella is rarely visited even during high season. It can be reached by the road that leads up from Portoferraio to delle Ghiaie beach.
Spiaggia di Forno – Blue and turquoise are the colors of the sea. The origin of the name of this small beach is the near fishing village. Several services are available on the beach, ideal place for holidays with kids.
Cala dei Frati – White pebbles smoothed by waves. There is Scoglietto di Portoferraio on one side, and Medici fortresses on the other side. Cala dei Frati is a beach very blind and quiet. It can be reached only by sea, starting from spiaggia delle Ghiaie.
Spiaggia delle Ghiaie – Calm, sun, sea, relaxation, and diving. According to many this small white pebble beach is the most beautiful of Portoferraio and of the entire Elba Island. It is also one of the most suitable for children.
These are the five most beautiful beaches of Portoferraio. But certainly not the only ones that the city offers to all its visitors. And to see them all, you just have to book your ferry trip.
