Giglio Island: 4 little known (but really wonderful) beaches

If we talk about the beauty and the sea and of the coastline, Giglio Island in Summer is one of the best Mediterranean tourist destinations. Moreover, you well know it since you will spend here your next Summer holidays. There is only one, small thing: don’t expect to be alone, especially on the most beautiful beaches of the island.

Because you will not be the only ones who want to relax on wonderful beaches such as Campese and Caldane. But don’t worry: there’s a good solution that will allow you to discover beautiful and, at the same time, not crowded places. In fact, these four beaches are (inexplicably) little known.

  1. Cala degli Alberi. The only rocky beach among the most beautiful ones of the island. It can be reached via boat and, for this reason, it is never crowded.
  2. Caletta del Saraceno. It is near the port of Giglio Porto but it is not among the best known of the island. A couple of steps from the street lead directly onto the sand.
  3. Cala dell’Allume. It is a spectacle of nature. Located at the centre of a small bay, the water is shallow and the water transparent. Starting from Giglio Campese, to reach Cala dell’Allume you have to walk along a stretch of rugged coast and pass the promontory of Franco.
  4. Cala Pozzarelli. One of the most beautiful coves of Giglio Island. There are two ways to get there: a boat tour or the path from Giglio Campese to the sea stack.
