Things to do

OUR SEA

The Argentario promontory’s entire coast is made of a succession of beautiful bays in which to enjoy pristine waters on top of the two long sandy beaches that connect us to the mainland. Giannella on the North to West side eventually leads to the town of Albinia and Feniglia on the South side, that eventually connects to Ansedonia through the natural pine forest reserve.

There, people can find numerous organized beach resorts as well as copious free-access spots. Most locations are accessible by car in the near vicinity.

One of the spectacular peculiarities of Argentario however, is its succession of coastal bays. Many are accessible on foot via trails descending from the coastal roads, all of them are obviously accessible by sea. Cala Grande, Cala del Gesso and Isola Rossa are beloved mooring spots. Our suggestion is to rent boats, for maximum enjoyment of these beautiful waters.
