Campo nell’Elba

This is the land of sea, sun, worldliness and fun. A municipality with a recent history on the south part of the island; it has the longest sandy beach on Elba which extends beyond 1300 Meters, with a free part and an equipped area and the island of Pianosa. In Marina di Campo, chief town of the municipality, there is the only aquarium of Elba that is considered the completed one of them with all kind of species living in the Mediterranean Sea. A curiosity: All the living beings here has been captured in ethical way  and this location is a reference point for the protection and the cure of turtles living in this sea. Many events are programmed during the summer season, some of them are performed on the beach like live concerts, for example the festival of the patron San Gaetano, to whom is dedicated the church you will find near the harbour. Every 7th of August the town is decorated and on midnight you can admire the firework that explode in the sea and in heaven.

Moving from Marina di Campo to the east you will drive on the panoramic street (SP25) that goes along the Costa Del Sole (sunny coast) crossing some of the most famous beaches of the island: Cavoli, Fetovaia, and others, all of them made of fine sand or white pebbles. You will see other islands like Pianosa and Korsika. 

Don’t miss a visit to the surprising island of Pianosa, having a bath in its clear water, protected till more of 150 years and where you can swim together with many fishes and admire the Pinna Nobilis, the biggest shells in the Mediterranean sea.

The plain of the land of Campo nell’Elba, where is the only airport of the island, is dominated by 2 nice villages with origin of the Pisan epoche, Sant’Ilario (180 masl)  and San Piero (227 masl). From the historical town center of San Piero you can start to visit the Granite way  (Vie del Granito) by foot or on board of an off-road car, there is the house of MUM (mineralogical museum Luigi Celleri), small but interesting, created to celebrate the natural and history bigness of this territorium; going inside you will do a trip into the soul of the granitic stone.
