Beach holidays in Maremma

 

Maremma is an area along the southern stretch of the coast in Tuscany that is attractive for its beaches, clear seas and rugged countryside.

This was once an under-frequented part of Italy that now draws more tourists from overseas in particular, but there are still some delightfully quiet spots, especially if you avoid the peak season. One particular highlight is the thermal springs at Saturnia - perfect for a day of relaxation.

There are many seaside destinations to choose from, which can make it difficult to narrow down your choices! Here are some of the most notable ones:

 

La Feniglia

Located in the scenic Monte Argentario area, La Feniglia is a 7 km beach largely made up of dunes and backed by pine woods. The area has an island feel to it, as Argentario juts out into the sea and is connected to the mainland by the beach. The clear waters are attractive and the beach is one of the most popular in Maremma.

 

Marina di Alberese

This 7 km sand beach is another highly popular holiday destination. Parts of the beach are very quiet and there’s even a nudist section a few kilometres down. It can get pretty busy in the summer, when the strictly-controlled parking spaces are in high demand, so it might be worth avoiding visiting in August.

 

Punta Ala

Punta Ala has two beaches, one in the direction of the Balbo Villa and the other along Via della Dogana. The former can get busy during the peak season but the area in general is more sophisticated than some of the more touristy parts of Maremma.

 

Cala Violina

This white sand cove is backed by woods and is one of the prettiest beaches in Maremma. There are numerous areas of natural interest nearby and it’s only possible to get to the beach on foot, horseback or bike. Its name stems from a legend about the sand in Cala Violina sounding like violins when you walk on it.

 

Talamone

There are several beaches of note in the Talamone area. Spiaggia della Fertilia is the main beach and particularly ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing, while Bengodi Beach is quieter and perfect for relaxation. Bagno delle Donne is busier but has a couple of secluded spots. The village of Talamone offers a fortress and great views of the Silver Coast.

 

Cala di Forno

Located in the middle of a natural park, Cala di Forno is extremely pretty and popular with families thanks to the shallow waters. Not much of the surrounding park is open to the public, but it’s still possible to appreciate your surroundings from the beach.
