Memories are one of the most beautiful parts of a vacation. Memories that, in many cases, are caught in photos and images. Such as these 9 panoramas of Elba Island, Tuscany: simply unforgettable.
- Padulella. It’s near Portoferraio. And it is one of the most beautiful beaches of the island. If you are wondering why, just look at the picture: two white rock promontories that surround the white gravel and the blue sea.
- Portoferraio at night. To see this view, the ideal way would be to rent a small boat and admire the town from the sea at sunset. At night, Portoferraio becomes a river of light that flows along the coast.
- Enfola. Another wonderful beach near Portoferraio. Capo Enfola is connected to the island by a narrow isthmus. On the isthmus there are two beaches.
- Anello occidentale. It is the coastal road from Procchio to Marina di Campo. Recommended for trekkers and for those who want to discover some of the most pristine landscapes that Elba can offer.
- Sansone. Small, very quiet, ideal for relaxation. It’s a beach to visit when the south winds are blowing and the sea gives incredible transparency and colors.
- The hermitage of Santa Caterina. One of the most visited hermitages of the island. It’s located near Rio nell’Elba and, once there, you will feel the sensation to be in a place where time seems to have stopped.
- The view from monte Capanne. Arrive on the highest peak of the island is not too demanding and you don’t have to be expert trekkers. Once there, you will see the whole island.
- Fortezze medicee. They are, in many cases, the first view that welcome visitors arriving here by ferry. It is an ancient system of fortifications that surrounds Portoferraio and its dock.
- Elviscot. For the last of the most beautiful Elba Island’s panoramas, the perspective changes. From the land, you will discover the sea: it is the wreck of an Italian freighter that sank not far from scoglio dell’Ogliera.
