Vacation on Giglio island: the best beaches for children are these 3

Giglio Island beaches for children

How to combine a holiday on Giglio island dedicated to relaxation and a trip to do with your children? The solution is simple: just know which beaches are best for children. Places where children can play freely and in complete peace of mind of parents.


The best 3

The best beaches for children of Giglio island are three:

  • Arenella bay. A long strip of white sand immediately recognizable thanks to the palm that grows in front of it. From the beach you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Argentario.
  • Campese beach. To get there, it takes about fifteen minutes by car from the town of Giglio Campese. It is the largest of the island and is located within a bay that protects it from winds.
  • Cannelle Beach. It is located on the east coast, just south of the town of Giglio Porto. The fine white sand and the granite rocks that surround it contributed to make it famous. It is also very crowded during the summer.

Arenella, Campese and Cannelle are easily reachable, a not insignificant feature during a holiday with children. You can get there either by your own transport (on one of the ferries to Giglio Island) or by bus.



Starting from the best beaches, we suggest you look for a hotel in Giglio Campese, one of the three locations on the island, directly overlooking the beach of the same name. Consider that, starting from here, you can easily reach also Cannelle and Arenella.



  • The most beautiful. Arenella bay, Cannelle beach and Campese beach are also three of the most beautiful beaches of Giglio island: to complete the holiday (even if they are less accessible), you could also see Caldane bay (rocky promontory) and Alberi bay (a cove of rocks).
  • The coves. Finally, it would be really worthwhile to discover the various coves of Giglio island: even though almost all are quite challenging to reach, they are authentic nature shows that will make your holiday even more special.
