Enjoying the waves
The beaches of Elba Island will make your experience even more authentic and wonderful. Here are the beaches that will add to your vacation at Tenuta delle Ripalte.
The cape of Remaiolo marks the boundary of the beach of the same name, sheltering it from the winds. The bay of Remaiolo is an oasis of tranquility, its beauty enhanced by the crystal-clear colors of the sea and the presence of a pine forest that provides ample shade. It is a supervised beach, equipped with food service, toilets and free parking. It is reserved for guests of the Tenuta, who can also take advantage of the free shuttle service. Here, you can also rent umbrellas and sunbeds, as well as canoes and sup, sign up for freediving courses and participate in organized dinghy trips. It is about 3 km from the center of the resort.
This beach enjoys a strategic location, nestled between the headlands covered with Mediterranean scrub and a pine forest, where you can find some shade on sultry days. It is equipped with food service and umbrella rental, toilets, parking and a small pier, for recreational boating. An uncrowded place to spend a quiet day at the beach in a secluded spot on the island, at Calanova beach you will truly feel in harmony with nature. It is about 7 km from the center of the Estate, from where you can reach the beach with the free shuttle service reserved for our guests.
Next to Calanova Beach stretches the private beach of Istia. The landscape preserves all its original wildness, showing all the beauty of unspoiled nature. The beach consists mostly of medium-sized sand and small stones. The small islet of Liscoli, 200 meters from the beach, adds to the already stunning view. Behind Istia beach, a large and beautiful pine forest provides refreshment. Starting from summer 2023, the beach will be provided with umbrella and sunbed rental service and will also be accessible using our free shuttle service, reserved for our guests.
For the more adventurous, Ginepro Beach (Juniper Beach) can be reached via a trekking route of about 30 minutes starting from the center of the resort. It is a dark sand and gravel beach, which is wild and secluded, wide and long. It is located at the foot of a high cliff veined with white quartzite layers, which create a strong color contrast of singular beauty with the black of the rocks. The cliffs on the beach are popular routes for free climbers.
A particular inlet on the eastern side of the promontory gives life to this corner of paradise. Stagnone beach is home to two picturesque coves, where stretches of sand, gravel and boulders alternate. The northernmost one is surrounded by rocks that create a small, shallow natural pool. The chromatic effects created by the different seabeds provide the eyes with a unique spectacle. The beach maintains its wilderness and can be reached via a path inside the estate, about a 20-minute walk from the Stagnone villa.
A tongue of sand nestled in the lush Mediterranean scrubland of the promontory. Embraced by the rich surrounding landscape, it opens to the sea in all its majesty. In this beach, you will find transparent and wonderful sea bottoms: it is a small natural gem which still preserves its integrity. An uncrowded place where you can find harmony with your inner peace and be captivated by the magnificence of water and vegetation.
