The beaches of our coast are vary in size and attractions; some equipped and able to offer all the comforts and services, others remote, wild and unspoiled where you can get lost in contact with nature and the sea in complete solitude …
The beach of Castiglione della Pescaia is located in front of the village, it is sandy, the sea has a low seabed and can be easily reached on foot from the Hotel L’Approdo. Castiglione della Pescaia has a Ponente beach and a Levante beach. The Ponente beach is the one that runs from Punta Porto to Punta Ala, it is the most popular beach in Castiglione, you will find various bathing establishments with bars and restaurants, but also a lot of free beach. Levante beach is the stretch that runs from Porto Canale towards Marina di Grosseto, is practically south of Castiglione; the characteristics are similar to Levante beach but it is certainly less crowded, therefore more suitable for those seeking relaxation and tranquility.
Moving slightly (also by bicycle on the cycle paths) towards Punta Ala you will come across other very beautiful coves among which the best known is certainly the Rocchette beach, where you can enjoy both the sand with its bathing establishments and a magnificent cliff with crystal clear waters around which you can snorkel or a long excursion by canoe or SUP.
Between Castiglione della Pescaia and Marina di Grosseto there is another beautiful and very long beach, that of the Marze. A sandy, wild and unspoiled beach where you will be immersed in a thick coastal vegetation typical of the Maremma that ends up directly on the sand of the sea: a paradise of nature.
Cala Violina, Cala Civette:
Cala Violina is one of the most beautiful beaches of the Maremma, pure sand, crystal clear sea and the unspoiled nature of the natural reserve.
Cala Violina beach is located between Follonica and Punta Ala (both about 10 km away), within the Bandite di Scarlino Nature Reserve. Cala Violina can be reached either from the side of the Puntone through a suggested and demanding bicycle route, or more easily from the side of Pian d’alma, along the provincial road 158 by car or motorbike.
Since Cala Violina beach is located within a nature reserve, and the parking for cars and motorbikes is limited, it is advisable to arrive early in the morning or in the late afternoon. Once the car is parked, to access the beach you need to walk a 1.5 km long path immersed in the beautiful pine forest of the reserve. Cala Violina is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Tuscan coast, located at the end of a dense and luxuriant Mediterranean scrub. The beach is clear and grainy, made up of very small quartz grains. The singular name derives from the sound emitted by the sand when you walk on it, which is reminiscent of that of the violin. Its waters are crystal clear and there are no bathing establishments, however in the summer, before arriving on the beach there is a kiosk with cold drinks and sandwiches. The beach is not very large, and in the pine forest in front of the beach there are wooden tables and benches for a snack in the shade of pine trees. For sports enthusiasts, the path behind the beach runs for several kilometers along the coast with an extraordinary and suggestive panorama. If you are in Maremma outside the bathing season, take a walk in Cala Violina, you will be able to appreciate its most authentic beauty. Even in the winter months, on sunny days, you will want to dive.
Cala Civette is very close to Cala Violina, crystal-green water, cream-colored sand and all around the Mediterranean scrub with an intense green. Cala Civette is the right place if you want the beauty of the Maremma maritime panoramas immersed in the quiet and tranquility. It is one of the most unspoiled and wildest beaches in the area, dominated by Torre Civette, a white tower overlooking the promontory, from which it takes its name. Cala Civette is the ideal spot for snorkeling surrounded by sea bass, sea bream, mullet and glances!
Punta Ala beaches:
In Punta Ala there are two beaches: a very small one is located on the left of the harbour in front of the Sparviero island, which can be accessed by walking through the marina to the south west end; there is a bathhouse and a small portion of a free beach, with a beautiful well-kept lawn next to it; the other beach instead, located between Punta Hidalgo and Cala del Barbiere, beyond the pine forest, is a long sandy beach with many bathing establishments, quiet, well-kept and suitable for children. About the bay of Cala del Barbiere which has been the subject of archaeological investigations that have brought to light Etruscan and Roman finds, it should be remembered that on this beach the famous film with Ugo Tognazzi “The duck with orange” was shot in 1973 .

The green hills and plains hide places of high interest, where traveling between culture and nature with your animal, in the Maremma areas there are pet-friendly structures and beaches accessible to dogs.
