A particularly enchanting beach, thanks to its black sand and black shingle, and thanks to the steep cliffs around it, with the vegetation that goes right down to the beach.
The car park is very small and is on the hill overlooking the beaches. The view from here is breathtaking: it looks on to the whole Capoliveri coastline, from Acquarilli beach on the right to Norsi beach on the left, and as far as the small island of Gemini opposite Innamorata beach. The cystal clear water with the reflection of the sea bed makes the entire view from the top of the road very suggestive indeed.
The beach is divided into two parts by some rocks jutting out from the cliffs. There are no facilities at all. Since it consists mainly of black sand and shingle it can be very hot: we advise you to take a sun umbrella with you.
The coast is very high and jagged and the path down is very steep, with a difference in level of about 100 metres, so getting down to the beach isn't very easy. But the fact that it isn't an easy beach to get to has meant that it has always been the perfect place for nudists. In 2015, the Capoliveri Town Council made this legal, so since then nudists are allowed on Acquarilli beach.
Take the main road from Portoferraio to Porto Azzurro, then take the junction for Lacona. Go past the signs for Norsi beach until you get to the promontory on the left that is clearly signposted because it was made into a fee paying car park in 2016.
There are some parking spaces along the road as well as about twenty in the fee paying car park.
Facing the sea, you will see the path for Acquarilli on your right.
