The crystal clear waters and the high tourist accommodation are now the main attractions of Follonica, which for 11 consecutive years has received the European Blue Flag, which certifies the excellent quality of water and the coast, the efficiency of services and security measures and high level of environmental education.

The Gulf is characterized by the safe shallows, its sandy beaches and its refreshing pinewoods. All the sandy shore is organized with private beaches alternated with public ones. Some other beaches welcome tourists with breathtaking scenery: Carbonifera, Torre Mozza, il Boschetto, la Polveriera, Cala Martina, Cala Civette, Casetta Civinini.

One in all, Cala Violina, one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in Italy, certainly the most famous of the entire Gulf, one that deserves the effort you do to achieve it (there can only be reached on foot or by bike).

A special mention goes to the local beaches that welcome dogs too: to the west in loc. Perelli and eastward in loc. Puntone.

It is difficult to list the beaches of Island of Elba where you can find over 70, all very nice, and appoint only the most famous: Cavoli, Procchio, Biodola, Marina di Campo, Fetovaia, Padulella.
