The main sandy beaches in Elba, suitable for children

Everybody knows that in Elba there are many beaches, and that they are all different. With those families who have small children in mind, we think you might find a complete list of the main, best known sandy beaches in Elba very useful.

Like all the beaches on the island, as well as a free area, they also have various facilities like sun umbrella hire, or where you can hire them and take them elsewhere along the beach, and bars and restaurants. In many beaches you can also take part in several water sports.

The sea at the sandy beaches is usually shallow till you are quite far out, so it is perfect for children who can swim in complete safety or simply play at the water's edge.

So...happy sand castles to everybody!
