short trip idea in 2017: Giglio Island

The reasons to visit Giglio Island are so many. Now, we want to give three in particular. Very, very good reasons to plan a short 2017 trip in spring to this beautiful island of the Tuscan Archipelago.


1. Relaxation

A short trip to Giglio Island in spring means no crowds of tourists, lower prices for the ferry trip and overnight stay, warm but not muggy temperatures. To all this, add the slow rhythms of a simple life.

Considering all these elements, you will have a picture of the small paradise of total relaxation that awaits you on the island. You’ll spend three days away from stress and the daily rut, immersed in nature and enchanted by unforgettable views overlooking the sea.


2. Trails

Ideal climatic conditions, warm but not muggy. Also, at this time of year, the rainfall is really minimal. And there are 31 trails that cross Giglio Island. If your hiking shoes are the first things that you put in your suitcase, you’ve got it.

If you’re not experience hikers, remember to take with you:

  • Water supply;
  • Hat;
  • Sunglasses;
  • Walking trousers;
  • Hiking shoes;
  • A mobile phone;
  • Prudence.


3. Scuba diving

The third reason to plan this spring 2017 short trip to Giglio Island is for the divers (not necessarily experts, even the beginner can have fun). Because Giglio Island is beautiful above the sea level exactly as under the sea level.

In this regard, the best dive sites of Giglio Island are these six:

  • Secca dei Pignocchi;
  • Punta delle Secche;
  • Secca della Croce;
  • Secca Zampa di Gatto;
  • Punta del Capel Rosso;
  • Scoglio di Pietrabona;
