Beach of Sansone

The beach of Sansone on the Island of Elba has been awarded several times internationally (Travelers' Choice 2020): it is a corner of paradise of smooth and white pebbles, with a white rock wall behind it, characteristic of this stretch of coast, partly covered by the Mediterranean scrub, a fairytale sea, with bright colors, which change from turquoise and slowly turn into an intense blue.

You know those documentaries with those images that, while you are comfortable on your sofa, make you want to immediately pack your suitcase? Well, look around, the beach of Sansone is one of those places.

Place the towel in the free part or rent an umbrella at the bathhouse equipped with a small bar and don't forget to take photos that will make all friends and relatives envy when you return home.

The beach is divided into two parts by the white rock: on the right there is a rock a few meters from the shore, ideal for sunbathing and snorkeling around; on the left a large stack, a destination for swimmers and hikers in canoes or kayaks, or for some families on pedal boats.

The best days to go to Sansone and enjoy all its splendor are those of scirocco wind: the sea becomes a canvas painted with oil colors, the backdrop will become visible to the naked eye.

We point out that along the path that goes down to the beach, there is a nice restaurant, suitable for lunches, aperitifs and dinners with a breathtaking view!
