A natural spectacle in the waters of the Tuscan Archipelago
A true paradise for tourists in all seasons: on Isola del Giglio, in the Tuscan Archipelago, you will find the perfect balance between nature and history, relaxation and adventure. Despite its compact size, the island has plenty to offer visitors. You’re sure to be tempted by its coves and sheer cliffs, from which you can dive into the crystal-clear waters.
Its wild coastline is perfect for adventurous excursions. You can take the path leading to the Capel Rosso lighthouse, which offers breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape and Monte Argentario in the distance. Equally stunning is the promenade that starts at Cannelle beach, passes a promontory and arrives in Caldane. The most beautiful lidos include Arenella, with its rocky seabed perfect for snorkelling. To fully appreciate the natural beauty of Giglio, we recommend hiring a small boat and stopping for a dip at the Cala dell’Allume and Cala del Corvo beaches.
But Isola del Giglio offers more than just beaches. Giglio Castello, listed among Italy’s most beautiful villages, is home to several artistic-architectural jewels. Don’t miss the Church of San Pietro and the Rocca Aldobrandesca castle, which offers unique views of the entire island from its walls. Not forgetting Giglio Porto, where you can stroll through the alleyways and admire the Saracen Tower that stands at the heart of this traditional fishing village.
