Diving – Some of the main spots for diving in Giglio Island are also suitable for those who want to dive themselves simply with scuba mask and snorkel. Can be mentioned punta Capel Rosso (the far south of the island), secca dei Pignocchi (in the bay of Giglio Campese), the rock of Pietrabona (in the homonymous bay).
Beaches – The most beautiful beaches of Giglio Island are five. Between these, the most suitable for snorkeling are definitely cala dell’Arenella (with its granite rocks), Cala degli Alberi (a small cove of rocks reached by sea) and cala delle Caldane (especially thanks to the many coves which open in nearby).
Giannutri – A small, wild and unspoiled island not far from Giglio. With the sole exception of Cala Maestra and Spalmatoio, the coast of Giannutri is completely rocky and rugged. A boat trip is the best way to find good spots for snorkeling.
