Have you come over to Elba without your car? No problem! You can always hire or rent so you can get about the island in absolute freedom. You can rent a car, a motorbike, a scooter, or a mountain bike. Hiring a scooter or a motorbike is perfect for those who want to avoid the traffic when they go to the beach. Although not as bad as in big cities, heavy traffic and where to park are serious problems in Elba, especially in the 2nd and 3rd week in August.
If you want to go to the many beaches and coves that can only be reached by sea, you will find boats of every shape and size that you can hire from the many boat hires all over the island, be they sailing boats, rubber dinghies, motorboats, or, for the more sporting people, water scooters.
