Cala dell'Aliva beach is between Fetovaia and Pomonte, in one of the most pristine parts of the Island of Elba, and, just like the nearby Tombe beach, it is made up of black rocks and shingle that absorb the heat from the sun.
Not only is it difficult to get to, there is neither any shade nor facilities, so it is perfect for nature lovers. A steep walk down the hill gets you to the beach in about 15/20 minutes, but be very careful towards the end.
Suggestion from Infoelba:If you decide to follow the path to this beach we suggest you wear closed shoes that are comfortable for walking in, and avoid flip flops.
The beach is very popular among those who are lucky enough to have a boat because they can reach it without having to walk, but this means that they miss out on the breathtaking scenery Mother Nature has to offer along the path on your way down that starts off from the main road-
On a clear day you can even see the islands of Montecristo and Pianosa on the horizon.
After about 1,5 km from Fetovaia the road to the left straightens out and here you will see a small, open space where you can park. Just before you get there, a pine tree will tell you that's where the path down to the beach starts.
You can also get to the beach on foot from the nearby [page id=299"]Tombe beach[/page].
