Notable the villages of Porto Ercole and Santo Stefano, as well as the village of Talamone, located a few miles further north. The Giannutri island worth a trek to discover the place of the lighthouse at the southern end, where you can admire the Grottoni and a visit to the ancient Roman villa from which to enjoy beautiful sunsets over the sea. At the island of Giglio, if you can not find place in the harbor, with winds third and fourth quadrant you can anchor just north of the port itself, to Cala del Lazzaretto, or immediately to the south, at Cala delle Cannelle. With southerly winds on the other side of the island there is the gulf of Campese, perfectly sheltered.
