Bagno is a small beach on the northern coast and sits between Procchio and Marciana Marina.
It consists of medium/large shingle, that is for the most part grey or multi coloured.
It is about 70 metres long, plus another 40 metres on the left facing the sea, where the pebbles are much bigger.
A small rocky area on the left means rock lovers can sunbathe and do some diving .
The lush vegetation behind it plus the fact that it faces north make it always very cool even at the peak of summer.
The history and tradition of this beach are very interesting, because up till the 1950s one of the two tuna fishing farms, where the tuna fish was caught and then worked, was here (the other, in Enfola, is now seat of the offices of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park). And it is precisely the old building where the tuna was worked, with the various areas where the fishermen cleaned and prepared their nets and kept their boats, and the chapel for the fishermen, that make this enchanting beach so unique.
The old houses that once belonged to the fishermen can still be seen behind the beach, but are now summer villas.
Although the beach is very popular among locals and the owners of the surrounding houses, Bagno is a very quiet beach even at the peak of summer, and is perfect if you want to relax or go snorkelling.
The breathtaking view stretches from capo dell'Enfola as far as Procchio beach.
There are neither any facilities on the beach nor access for the disabled.
After about 4,5 km along the road from Procchio to Marciana Marina you will see the sign for the beach, just follow the tarmacadam path and then go down about forty steps. There are no car parks, so you have no choice but to try and find a space at the side of the main road.
