NATURE

The Tuscan Archipelago extends on 60.000 hectares of water and 18.000 hectares of land above sea level.


From the naturalistic point of view, Elba offers a very rich and varied ecosystem, which is rather delicate and is characterized by very peculiar species of animals and plants.

This system has allowed the creation of the largest Marine Park of Europe, that was founded in 1989 and which is a naturalistic heritage of great value for whole mankind.

The park was born to protect the existing ecosystems and to safeguard the migratory fluxes of various species of birds between Europe and Africa.

The Island of Elba collects a range of beaches that are really wonderful, with a very thin and fine sand, lapped by a clear sea water.

The Tuscan Archipelago extends on 60.000 hectares of water and 18.000 hectares of land above sea level.

The best period to enjoy this archipelago and its beauties is spring or autumn, far from the summer touristic season.

In the periods when the island is less crowded by tourists, it is possible to sail calmly in the archipelago, discovering its charming landscapes by making long walks on the beach or practicing horse riding, windsurfing, sailing or trekking.

The Island of Elba, in particular, collects a range of beaches that are really wonderful, with a very thin and fine sand, lapped by a clear sea water, that is rich in any kind of fish and that changes its colour in every inlet.
