Elba in spring, come to witness the awakening of an enchanting place
When mass tourism is still far from the coasts, the islands give their best spreading their beauty, which emerges from the sea with the charme of a solitary Venus. And it’s precisely by exploiting this kind of tranquility that it is worth going to visit the Island of Elba in the spring months, enjoying all opportunities that in the summer, on the hottest days of the year could be tiring, crowded or even impractical.
Hotel Villa Wanda is a quiet and pleasant 2-star family-run hotel, open all year round, nestled in a beautiful green area between the villages of Capoliveri and Porto Azzurro in a strategic and convenient position. It offers you a holiday on the queen of the Tuscan Archipel from March to May starting from only Euro 25.00 per person per night in a double room at the beginning of Spring, when the enchantment of the place will seem to open only for you.
March, April and May are perhaps the months when the Island of Elba explodes in its beauty. The colors and the scents of the Mediterranean scrub will pervade everywhere, and the still crisp air and the sun that starts to warm the rocks will be a perfect cure for the stress accumulated in the city.
The island of Elba offers tourists a particularly mild climate that allows in some years to already make the first baths in March. Especially indicated for the first swim in the sea during the low season are the beaches on the south side of the island of Elba like that of Cavoli, known to be the hottest beach of Elba or the Lido di Capoliveri reachable on foot from Hotel Villa Wanda. Spring on the island of Elba offers pleasant sunny days, ideal for the first sunbaths or wonderful walks through the blooming mediterranean nature.
So here are some ideas to enjoy the island in Spring, when the days get longer.
1 – Be the first who leave footprints on the sand
Even in the most popular beaches you will be able to experience moments of intimacy: you, the sea, the sky and the sand. The colorful and typical crowding of the warmer months is still far away, and in addition, the colors and transparencies in this season are truly incredible. Feeling a bit Crusoe, but without obligation.
2 – Walk among the flowers.
Colors, perfumes, the chirping of birds. Every walk is a new discovery. And the initiatives, including excursions, theme walks and international festivals are innumerable. There is nothing to do than prepare the backpack and choose! Even hunting for wild orchids, which are many here, is not bad…
3 – Collect field herbs.
From Lampascione to Wild Fennel, from Triquetro garlic to the Navel of Venus, they grow everywhere and are excellent for flavoring any dish … with the tastes of Elba. Ever tried a Bonito fish in oil of Capoliveri with slices of Sant’Andrea lemon and flowers of Borage?
4 – Observe the island that makes itself beautiful.
The hulls of the boats are repainted, the tops of moorings are reinforced. The bars put out chairs and tables, the restaurants on the sea light up small candles between glasses and cutlery. In the streets of the villages and marinas, shopkeepers expose their products to the sun that shines already warm.. A familiar and sparkling atmosphere, to be shared absolutely.
5 – Prepare for the bathrobe test and enjoy well-being.
Massages and aesthetic treatments aimed in the idyllic background of the Elban spring: expert hands will free you of the winter torpor, giving new tone to the muscles and brightness to the skin. And in San Giovanni, our affiliated thermal baths, offer a whole series of exclusive treatments, to be enjoyed romantically even together in couple..
6 – Become a photojournalist of your most beautiful memories.
Photography passionates, stubborn Igers, in this period each subject acquires unrepeatable colors and facets, giving your albums an awardwinning freshness and distinctiveness, whether you are fully equipped, or traveling only with your faithful Smartphone.
7 – Go cycling and maybe take part in some challenges.
Fat and non-fat tires, cycling in the clear spring mornings, looking forward to a beach break and sunbathing is unrivaled: sport and relaxation in one go. But if the competition is what you are looking for, you only have to check the schedule of the many more or less demanding events, which are part of national competitions and start training .. on the same roads that covered Fausto Coppi, many years ago.
8 – Living great adventures in the boundless blue.
When the sky blends with the waves in a million shades, from blue marine, to turquoise, to cobalt blue, it’s time to become part of this incredible palette meeting the sea and all its activities, above and below the surface: kayaking, sailing, diving, snorkeling, S.u.p. and Jet-Lev, that will make you fly on the water.
9 – Visit the places of Napoleon, the Mineralogical Museum of San Piero and the National Park
And the Aquarium, the Linguella Museum in Portoferraio, the Marciana Aurea circuit, the Rio Mines and those of the Calamita … and with the beautiful days, the widespread Museum of the Italo Bolano ceramics, or the botanical garden near the Hermitage of Santa Caterina in Rio Elba, getting lost between blooms and buzzing of the bees.
