No bathing establishments on this part different coloured shingles and part coarse grain sandy beach that is 120 metres long and 15-20 metres wide, exposed mostly to south west, west and north west winds.
An "untouched" beach, in that it is frequently cleaned and is still untouched by man. There is a lot of posidonia (wrongly considered sea weed) on the beach, as well as the odd tree trunk brought in by the tide.
The reflection in the clear blue water of the medium sized white pebbles and different coloured shingles next to the rocks on the right hand side of the beach is a spectacular sight.
On days of scirocco wind, the crystal clear sea is to be admired from the promontory on the right of the beach. A short path leaves from here and leads to both the promontory and the "red stones", as well as to Mangani beach, but avoid going during the hot, afternoon hours.
A cane thicket separates the beach from the few houses in Nisportino. On the left hand side of the beach you'll find a Bar/Pizzeria where you can also hire sun umbrellas and sun beds. There is also an aisle on the beach for boats. The car park is on the short road leading to the beach.
The beach is perfect for those who want to escape from the city and have a completely relaxing holiday.
There is a part grit, part tarmacadam road, usually well kept, both from Bagnaia or from Rio Elba. If you're coming from Bagnaia, follow the road for Rio Elba-Nisporto for 4,9 kilometres; although it has a lot of bends, the view more than makes up for them: Portoferraio and the northern coast as far as the Enfola promontory on the sea, and valley after valley of Mediterranean scrub going right down to the sea. Once you get to Nisporto, keep going uphill and back down again towards the sea for another 4 kilometres. If, on the other hand, you are coming from Rio Elba, follow the Nisportino-Nisporto road for 5 kilometres.
