Have been visiting this beach for well over 10 years, but NEVER in summer when at 7 in the morning the few free parking places have already been taken [I refuse to pay for parking on Elba, against my principles, Ha!]]. Up until May or from mid September onwards is the best period to be here. Badenmeister Sauro is the...
I've seen many of Elba beaches - this one is probably most beautiful. I'm afraid in summer, due to this, it may be too popular, but in September its heaven. If you don't like sand, you can go down from the road to the east side of the bay and bath from the stones, it is also good there:)
no parking available or 16€ for a whole day. no space for free beach or not enough for the quantity of people who want to come there. If you want to have something to eat, or only an ice cream you need to line like in a bar at railway station.
As mentioned in the title to this review, there is clear water and a good buffet restaurant. When we went we found pay parking but not free parking. Umbrellas take up most of the beach, the free beach is just squeezed in the corners
Narrow road down to main prking is making it a bit ahrd to reach.
Free parking for just couple of cars at the end of the road is waiting for you if you have luck.
Anyway many private parkings are available.
Beach if medium large with clean water and placed protected from open sea.
If you visit Elba you should...

This stunning island was a short stop for us on our world trip. Well, we wish we could have stayed longer. The beach is stunning, the bay is stunning, the water is breathtaking. We came here early because we wanted to enjoy the emerald waters and the relative peace you get in early spring. Last year we were there in...
