Beautiful Cavoli is one of the most famous beaches (an also one of the crowdiest in summer) on the Island of Elba, and this is thanks to the crystal clear sea, the beautiful sand and its unique microclimate.
Since it faces south, and has Monte Capanne to shelter the bay from northern winds, it always has a mild climate, so this means you can get a good tan and will be able to go swimming here even in low season.People come to this beach from March to November.
It is made up of coarse grain sand that doesn't stick to your skin, and sits in a beautiful inlet surrounded by Mediterranean scrub and rows of cliffs; all this, plus the shallow sea bed make the water crystal clear.
It is over 350 metres long and up to 25 metres wide, and several large rocks divide it into two: the several bathing establishments are on the larger part to the east, while those in search of peace and quiet tend to prefer the smaller part to the west.
It isn't only the beach itself that is very popular among teenagers and those who love sunbathing; the cliffs on the right are very busy among those who love to dive off the rocks into the water.
Hint from Infoelba: If you want, you can go and see the beautiful Grotta Azzurra, also known as Grotta di Mare (sea grotto) that is on the eastern side of Cavoli. Access is only by boat or pedalo, and it is definitely something not to be missed.
From the beach in Cavoli you can see the Islands of Montecristo and Pianosa on the horizon.
Although Cavoli is usually considered one of the best beaches for families with small children, it must be said that it is also one of the most lively on the Island of Elba. It is perfect for teenagers who are looking for fun and enjoyment. Every summer, above all in July and August, beach parties add even more life and excitement to this beautiful beach, and you can dance to live music or that played by DJs while you sip delicious cocktails.
The beach is about 5 km from Marina di Campo and you can get there very easily by car(or by the Island of Elba public bus service) just follow the numerous and regular road signs on the western side of the island.
There is a car park at a fee opposite the beach, and another one with surveillance, also at a fee, on the road that leads down to the beach (Via Cavoli).
There are also many parking spaces and lay-bys that are free along the main road. If you are comig from Marina di Campo, 300 metres after the junction on your left for Via Cavoli, you will see a car park, and from here there is a short path that leads right down to the beach.
Bear in mind, however, that this beach is very busy during peak season so it won't be easy to find room to park.
