Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Tuscany / Province of Livorno / Elba Island / Portoferraio / Spiaggia Di Sansone
Against a backdrop of lush green cliffs, the turquoise waters at Spiaggia Di Sansone contrast with the white of the pebble beach. Descend a slightly steep path to reach the sheltered cove. Beware of jellyfish, although the water is so clear they can be seen easily. To visit Spiaggia Di Sansone and other attractions in Portoferraio, use our Portoferraio trip planner.
Spiaggia Di Sansone reviews
There will be problem finding a parking, but that’d the least of the hustle. You better have hiking shoes or at least sneakers to go downhill , first on a asphalt , than on narrow “ goat trail...

Beautiful and quiet! An immersion in the sound of the sea. A short down path to reach this beautiful spot is worthwhile the experience. There is a small restaurant nearby but no kiosk so bring your own water and snacks if you wish not to walk anymore
Beautiful beach!!! There is a parking lot (10 euro for a whole day) where you can leave your car. Then, you walk down a narrow road and arrive at beach La Sorgente. If you proceed down the path, you arrive at beach Sansone, which is only a few meters away from La Sorgente. There is a bar too in-between the two beaches. The beaches are made of pebbles and have clear blue water. One small issue: it is usually packed. My advice is to come early and get a nice spot :) however, we arrived late, around ten o'clock, but managed to find a free spot. Also, on the furthest part of Sansone beach, around 2 pm there will be no sun on the beach, cause the rock shadows it, which is however pretty enjoyable anyway. You can dive and have a relaxing day in one of the most stunning beaches of Elba island!
