Beaches in Maremma Tuscany
Guide to the best beaches of the Maremma
The farmhouse Podere il Leccio is nestled in the heart of the Maremma Tuscany , ideal place to spend their holidays at sea and discover beaches surrounded by unspoilt nature. The Maremma sea, among the clearest of Italy, washes a coast of about 160 km, offering a wide variety of landscapes: long sandy beaches, sheer cliffs overlooking the sea, wild bays, modern bathing establishments and equipped, public beaches, features islets, fishing villages and beautiful backdrops.
A few kilometers from the farm, in fact, you can reach the sandy beach of Castiglione della Pescaia, awarded for several years with “The 5 sails” and the “Blue Flag” of Legambiente and Touring Club of Italy, for the beauty of the water and the environment surroundings, accompanied by the quality of services offered in the various beach clubs. Moving north in the direction of Punta Ala, it is the Rocchette beach, with sand and rocky seabed suitable for snorkeling. Between Punta Ala and Follonica, within the Nature Reserve of Banish Scarlino, it turns out Cala Violina, one of the most beautiful beaches of the Maremma, overlooking in front of a dense and lush Mediterranean vegetation; the beach is clear and grainy, composed of tiny grains of quartz. The unusual name comes from the sound that emits the sand when you step on one, which reminds of the violin.
Going south along the coast, there are other beautiful beaches like the one of the Marze, ideal for lovers of water sports such as sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. Continuing south, the broad and sandy beach of Marina di Grosseto, with its bathing facilities, free beaches and a pine forest.
Further south we are advised to visit the charming port of Talamone, and Orbetello, overlooking the Argentario peninsula, with its beautiful pristine lagoon which expands to the sea welcoming one of the most beautiful oasis of the Italian WWF. Here are the famous beaches of Feniglia and Giannella, formed by a very fine sand with a light color. These wonderful strips of land joining the promontory to dry land and can be reached either by sea either through the entire territory up to Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole. Magnificent panoramas that follow, made of old windmills scattered around the lagoon and a flora and fauna difficult to find elsewhere. Impossible not to bring their camera to capture scenes to remember.
Reserve full of the Maremma National Park, is Cala di Forno, a sandy beach protected strongly that stretches in front of the promontory of Uccellina Park.
Among the steps required for sea lovers, we remember the Giglio Island, which is reached by ferry from Porto Santo Stefano, rich in natural beauty; a crystalline sea among the cleanest in Italy, colored backdrops by sponges and sea fans, an extremely varied coast.
