Day 1: Check-in
Check-in available from 5 p.m. at the embarkation Marina. After the technical check-in and a short presentation of the boat, you can take your seat in the cabins and board the galley before setting sail.
After breakfast, we set sail to cross the short sea loch that separates Piombino from Elba Island and head west along the northern coast to arrive in the fascinating village of Marciana Marina. Located on the slopes of Mount Capanne and nestled in a semicircular bay, this hamlet will astound you with its natural beauty and the seaside full of scented tamarisks, where you can walk among little shops, cafes and excellent restaurants.
We raise sail to reach Fetovaia, one of the most suggestive beaches on the island. Located on the southwestern part of Elba, this bay will enchant you for its spectacular natural context with granitic cliffs, colorful waters shading from intense blue into light green, and a long pure white sand beach. The seabed gets deeper gently and the calm waters of this bay offer a safe dock protected from almost all the winds, perfect to spend a day at anchor in total relax...
In the late morning, we set sail for an enjoyable journey along the coast in front of Secchetto, to arrive in Cavoli in the afternoon. The mild climate, always protected from the northern winds, makes this bay the ideal place for bathing from March until November. Here you will have time for swimming, relaxing and cliff diving. In the evening, you can go ashore on the beautiful beach to enjoy a cocktail and take part in one of the beach parties that animate the beach, with live music and DJ sets.
After breakfast we proceed to the east, stopping to admire the wonderful Grotta Azzurra (“Blue Cave”), also called Grotta di Mare, on the east side of Cavoli and reachable only by boat. From there, we head for Marina di Campo and its famous golden sand beach that extends for almost 2 km, nearby a luxuriant pine grove and washed by crystal clear waters. Directly on the beach you can find bars and restaurants where you can try the local cuisine, and many shops open from morning until sunset, where you can go shopping for the rest of the trip.
From Marina di Campo we move to the east through a nice sailing, to reach the wonderful capoliverese coast, full of little coves and suggestive docks, among which the bays of Laconella, Felciaio and Zuccale, where you can breath peace as well as the nice fragrances of the Mediterranean macchia that surrounds these beautiful beaches. You will have time for an excursion to the wonderful medieval hamlet of Capoliveri, dominating the sea and good part of the southern coast of Elba Island from the top of a hill.
After a good breakfast in the beautiful bakery on the seaside, we leave for a last anchorage in the enchanting bay of Barbarossa. Time for dives, baths and a relaxing lunch before taking off and heading north-east in the direction of Piombino. Return to the Marina di Salivoli at 18:00 with overnight stay in the port included.
