    Lovely water, great views and there is a cave pass through that leads to the adjacent Spiaggia Padulella. Very clear waters.

    Spent a lovely morning here. Free beach after sun loungers. Pebble but snorkelling great with wreck about 40 m out. Stones slippy when getting in and out.

    So worth it. It can get cold and windy for the top 1/3 of the ride, but it's worth the effort. You can see Porto Ferraio and Porto Assure at the same time from the top. The bird cage experience is just so goofy you have to do it if you are there.

    Even in September, a bit after the high season, this beach is packed. There are 3 or 4 companies renting umbrellas and lounge chairs. Between them, they cover a great percent of the sand. However, services are convenient (restaurant, buffet, bar, changing areas, toilet). We had to park quite a distance away, up a steep hill. That said, the sand and the sea here are spectacular!

    Difficult to park close to the beach but with nice sand and a great bar close to the beach.
    The water is very shallow so it’s a good place for games in the water and good for small kids.

    With the majority of the beaches I went to being rocky, this fine sand beach was a welcome relief for my feet. It is too commercial for my liking but the water is great and the kids liked renting a pedal boat with built in slide.

    Clean sea, safe for families, sensible prices in all the beachside cafes, a very low key but charming place in which to relax.

    The beach was beautiful and we were part of a hotel which kept it from getting too crowded. The water was warm. It was also beautiful. However, once we started snorkeling, we found quite a lot of small jellyfish. They were not a problem for us. Just be careful.

    Great sand beach with clear water. You can walk very far in the water!! Lots of tourists and families, so not the most peaceful place.

    Beautiful water on a pebble beach, nice snorkeling area available. Not a very big beach, most is private renting out beach beds and umbrellas.
    Only negative is a nice long walk down to the beach (have to go back up later)

    The beach is excellent. The food are very good and not too expensive. Easy drive, hard to park, but it really worth the effort.
