Alan Rogers Review

The attractive bay and beach (some seaweed) to which this site has sole access is the strong card at this family owned site, however getting there involves negotiating a boat ramp or steps, both of them steep. There are 274 terraced pitches among the pine and gum trees (3/5A electricity). Most of the 80 sq.m. pitches have shade and some have sea views. Cars are parked separately. The hub of the site is around the shop, bar/restaurant, pizzeria and takeaway and pleasant terraces. There is also a small, raised, inflatable pool near reception. The site is not suitable for campers with disabilities.

There are some views out over the bay from various parts of the site and an entertainment programme during high season. You can swim safely or enjoy watching the watersports from the soft sand. There is a bus service from the gate to explore the range of local Etruscan ruins and all manner of things special to Elba. Angelica speaks excellent English and is charming.


Two traditional, but tired, sanitary blocks have a mixture of facilities, and neither smelled fresh when we visited. Mostly Turkish style toilets, cold water at washbasins, hot showers (token). Basic facilities for disabled visitors. Basic baby room. Laundry facilities. Motorcaravan services. Bar/restaurant, self-service, takeaway and pizzeria. Shops. ATM. Boat launching and mooring. Sub-aqua club. Entertainment (high season). Play area. Miniclub (high season). Torches useful. Dogs are allowed.

From anywhere on Elba head for Porto Azzuro. Site is west of the town and well signed. It is on the road to the village of Le Calanchiole on the coast.
