Elba Island is located two hours by boat from Punta Ala and its conformation can always offer a secure shelter with any sea condition. Beautiful coves interspersed with modern marinas, where you can have diesel, water and galley and spend the evening in pleasant restaurants. Capraia is a beautiful island, still largely wilderness, with a lovely marina and a small village placed higher, dominated by a castle of 1540. Even more distinctive is the village of Giglio Castello, fortified to resist the incursions of the Saracens. The Giannutri is a private island where only electric cars are allowed and the roads are unpaved. There are not marinas and you anchor in Spalmatoio bay or Cala Maestra.
The Commander suggests:
- Giannutri:Do not miss a trek early in the morning immersed in a maquis of great beauty
- Giglio Island: with a little luck mooring to Giglio Porto and dinner in the evening to Giglio Castello
- Elba island:nothing better than to tour it on a scooter. For bathing do not miss Fetovaia, Punta Calamita and Capo d’Enfola
- Capraia Island:wild and beautiful, after the marina well worth a night in the bay of Cala Moreto
