costa degli etruschi baratti



All the coastal towns have well-equipped establishments and holiday resorts, but there are also some must-see unique off-trek beaches that you should not miss.

The beach between Piombino and Torre Mozza has shallow, crystal clear waters and light-colored sand, is not recommended when the Sirocco blows but is well protected from the northern winds.

An impressive landmark is Parco costiero della Sterpaia with its Nano Verde and Bagnoskiuma equipment points.
The beach can be reached from Piombino along the coastal road to Torre Mozza.

Baratti is an icon of the area: a spectacular scene framed by the typical domestic umbrella pines, sculpted by the wind and the very welcoming backdunal environment which protects it from southerly winds such as the Sirocco. A little further north of the Gulf of Baratti, along Via della Principessa which connects Piombino to San Vincenzo, more than five kilometres of golden beach belonging to Parco di Rimigliano await you, where the Mediterranean vegetation reveals itself in all its beauty, with a full variety of species, shapes and colours.

The Promontory of Piombino offers enchanting corners with rocks and blue sea

The Piombino Promontory offers enchanting corners with rocks and blue sea: for those who like to walk (among Etruscan tombs…) we recommend Buca delle Fate, a fascinating trail which can be reached from Colle del Reciso, near Populonia, where you can leave your car; otherwise you can walk from Baratti along path 302 (Via dei Cavalleggeri).

A little further away, but still within easy access for a day trip, is Cala Violina beach.
