The Beaches
Lovers of uncontaminated nature will find a small paradise as they reach the Lamaia beach, bordering with Portoferraio and connected with Biodola beach by the so called "health path", a shadowy track leading through the greenery. Not far from here, the Porticciolo cove opens up, just as Lamaia beach surrounded by greenery, and an excellent docking point for small boats. Procchio beach, wide and beautiful, has worthily become very famous thanks to the fine and clear sand and to its well protected location. It is extraordinarily well-equipped and is able to host any kind of guests and consequently one of the island's busiest beaches. If you do not like crowded resorts you should move on to the more peaceful beaches Guardiola and Spartaia where you can relax even with your four-legged friends that might not be accepted on the larger and busier ones. Not far from Guardiola you will find Campo all'Aia, , a small and protected bay that forms an excellent starting-point for excursions at sea. Along the road that leads from Procchio to Marciana there are indications for Paolina, beach that has gotten its name from the homonymous rock that is located opposite to the beach. It is covered with fine sand and always guarantees a shadowy area thanks to the holm-oaks that frame the cliffs behind.
Travelling down the road that connects Marciana with Sant'Andrea , take off at the diversion to Maciarello and you will come on to a steep path that leads to Cala Cala beach, divided by a small promontory from the tiny beach Caletta that can only be reached from the sea. Maciarello, ibeach, framed with charming caves, is also called della Fontina in virtue of the presence of a spring with drinkable water that used to supply the inhabitants. Continuing on the same road you will find indications for the well-equipped and protected Sant'Andrea beach, easily accessible and covered with fine sand. The beach is surrounded by a barrier of stones that keeps the water-level low which makes it suitable also for children. Just next to it, the small but extraordinarily beautiful Cotoncello opens up for you, where the reefs create a delightful natural pool. Geologically identical to Cotoncello you have the Sant'Andrea reef which can be reached by foot from the homonymous beach and is known for its transparent sea-bed and its very rich marine life. The beautiful contrast between the reefs and the superb colors of the sea, necessitates at least a visit. Cala della Cotaccia, beach can only be reached from the sea, and it is not actually a proper beach but cliffs. Another easily accessible and beautiful cove between the rocks is La Guardia, not far from Patresi, , also embellished with a very limpid sea-bed and from which you on clear days can see the outline of Corsica. Lovers of uncontaminated nature will especially appreciate the dark and stony rocks at Le Buche beach, accessible from Colle d'Orano and from where you easily get to Mortigliano beach, morphologically very similar, beautiful and isolated and made even more spectacular by the rocks that tower behind it. Caletta di Punta Nera and Campo Lo Feno beach are both a niche of peace, only accessible from the sea or with great effort from land., while beach a short walk from the main-street is sufficient to enjoy the incredible colors of the sea in front of Chiessi beach. Mount Capanne dominates Pomonte beach which can be reached from the street that runs along the residence with the same name, embellished with exceptionally transparent water. The beaches at Pomonte wind just below the road and the most pleasant point is probably the one known as Punta dell'Ogliera, on the border of the commune Campo nell'Elba.
