Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year. And can you imagine, even in winter, a more romantic view than the one offered by the sea, especially at sunset? If this is your desire, we can give you three great ideas.
- Portoferraio. It is the main town on the island. After a pleasant stroll in its old town centre, admiring churches and fortresses, near Portoferraio there are five of the most beautiful beaches on Elba Island: we are talking about delle Ghiaie, Padulella, Capo Bianco, Sansone and Enfola. Each of them will give you amazing views, especially at sunset, perfect for the most romantic island.
- Anello occidentale. It’s the name of the coastal road from Procchio to Marina di Campo. In few kilometers, the Anello occidentale will allow you to discover some of the most beautiful places on the island. And romantic places, of course, such as the picturesque isolotto della Paolina (a small island named after Pauline Bonaparte, Napoleon’s sister), Poggio and Chiessi.
- Porto Azzurro. About beaches and sea, also Porto Azzurro, on the east coast, has much to offer. In particular, the most beautiful beaches of this town are six: for example, the famous Barbarossa, Pianotta and Terranera. There are many quaint small restaurants overlooking the sea, where you can enjoy a delicious candlelight dinner.
As you have seen, the ideas to spend Valentine’s Day near the sea of Elba Island are several. And now, you just have to book a ferry trip to Elba Island.
