Capo Bianco beach is about 290 metres long and up to about 20 wide.
It consists of small, white pebbles of different sizes in some parts and in others grainy sand; this is also a good description of the sea bed that also consists of brilliant white pebbles, and the way they reflect under thecrystal clear water is almost magical.
Even the whole coast at the back of the beach is white.
It is one of the most beautiful beaches and is an absolute must if you come to the Island of Elba on holiday. It is similar to other beaches on the northern side of Portoferraio, like Sottobomba, Sorgente and Sansone.
Sheltered by high, steep cliffs behind it Capo Bianco is the perfect beach when the Scirocco wind is blowing, because the sea is still calm, and crystal clear..
Hint from Infoelba: it's better not to stand at the foot of the cliffs because some stones and rocks might fall on your head.
Leave the old part of Portoferraio and turn right at the road that leads to Le Ghiaie beach, then keep going for about one kilometre until you see the signs for Capo Bianco beach. The road comes to an end at a large, open space above the beach.
The spacious car park has a fee. Several steps get you to the beach in no time.
