A paradise with crystal-clear waters 

Two other beaches on Elba, Marina di Campo in Cavoli and La Sorgente in Portoferraio, are 14th and 16th in the European rankings of the best beaches drawn up by European Best Destination, a body of the EU Commission. The Cavoli beach is one of the most popular on Elba and famous for its sand and its crystal-clear sea. It also has a favourable microclimate that makes the beach usable throughout most of the year.

A Tripadvisor beautiful beach

Perfect water, sand and gravel are what make La Sorgente so popular. There is also a scenic path that leads to the nearby beach of Sansone, in turn included in the rankings of the most beautiful beaches in Europe in 2021, according to TripAdvisor. Another top favourite is Ghiaie to the north-east of the island, very close to Portoferraio, which has an extraordinarily beautiful seabed and grey-blue pebbles smoothed by the sea. When the sirocco wind blows the water becomes even more transparent, and the sea is perfect for snorkeling.
