The beaches of the Maremma coast


About 25 minutes by car from the Locanda is perhaps one of the most famous beaches, only pedestrian or bicycle access is allowed, leaving your vehicle about 20 minutes away on foot. A protected oasis with no establishments and services, just walk (it is said that you hear the sound of the violin) for the first time on the only fine white beach on the coast to fall in love with it.

Cala Civette.

The beach runs along the fence of the campsite and leads to the mouth of the Alma river: it is therefore necessary to ford the river, which is very shallow near the mouth, the seabed is sandy with water that does not even reach the knee, and therefore overcome a difficult passage of about fifty meters along the cliff until you reach the beach (rock shoes are recommended).

There are no bathing establishments or equipped areas: it is one of the most spartan beaches, ideal for those who love nature and seek the most direct contact with it. An earthly paradise: the waters are green, crystalline, the sand is clear.

Punta Ala.

Charming and exclusive tourist center 25 by car from the Inn with a very famous tourist port, dominated by Torre Balbo dating back to the second half of the sixteenth century, which is located on the top of the Capo Troia promontory.

In addition to the various exclusive establishments, next to the road that runs along the sea before reaching the town, the beach is free and accessible for free. Fantastic sea and protected by a surrounding Mediterranean pine forest protected from the winds from the south.


About 20 minutes by car from the Locanda, the beach is located in front of a centuries-old pine forest.

The advice is to leave the car a little earlier, and walk to the beach (5 minutes). The sand and the seabed that slopes very slowly. There are bathing establishments, bars, restaurants by the sea and a lot of free beach. On the far right you will also find some rocks from which you can dive without too much difficulty. The water is very clear and the seabed is suitable for snorkeling.

You can rent a pedalot or kayak and take a ride and a dip under the Fort that dominates the promontory, an ancient watchtower built in the 12th century. and today private property.

Castiglione della Pescaia.

A tourist half among the best in Italy in terms of services, sea quality and natural environment, the country has the best you could wish for for a holiday dedicated to comfort and relaxation. The town can be reached comfortably from 3 entrances (north, south and east) so as to immediately have the possibility of arriving at the beach without major problems or paths to do.

All the beaches of Castiglione are of very fine gray sand, alternating between private establishments and free beaches with easy access, both for the north part of the canal port and the south, crystalline sea that slowly slopes, very suitable for less experienced swimmers .


The beach that runs along the access road to Talamone (facing the bay of Talamone) is the ideal place for lovers of sailing, windsurfing and kite-surfing.

The seabed on the north side is rocky and therefore also suitable for snorkeling. The beach located under the fortified fortress is a real jewel, you leave your car and go down a small road that ends with a staircase until you reach the bathing establishment called "Bagno delle Donne".

Monte Argentario.

When entering this environment we must abandon the idea of the beach and start using the term Cala, as this territory has no fine beach (if not large pebbles), but only rapidly degrading rocks on the sea, so the advice is to wear comfortable shoes (no flip flops) and engage in beautiful walks made of steep descents and climbs to get to every sea point.

You can start from Cala Grande, the fantastic Cala del Gesso, Cala del Mar Morto and the Cannelle all public without private establishments, a true paradise for snorkelling and more experienced swimmers.

More comfortably you can rent a dinghy and take a ride in some coves and fully enjoy the pristine sea and the fantastic backdrops, here you can also go scuba diving

Ansedonia - Split of the Queen.

Once you reach Ansedonia, drive up the small promontory until you reach the highest part, which is completely occupied by the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Cosa.

On the beach of the south-east side of Ansedonia, right next to the hill, we find La Tagliata and the Spacco della Regina, two hydraulic engineering works dating back to the Roman Empire, a few meters away from each other.

The beach is both free and with equipped private establishments, it is dark, quite coarse and degrades quite quickly.

Tomboli of Feniglia and Giannella.

La Feniglia (looking south) together with Giannella beach (looking north) are the two tomboli (strips of land) that connect Monte Argentario to the mainland. The Tombolo della Feniglia is a natural reserve crossed by a dirt road, which can only be traveled on foot or by bicycle, which runs inside a pine forest for about 6 km, a true paradise here you can also meet deer that live permanently in the reserve . The beach is almost entirely free, clear and slowly degrading.
