Sitting between the two beaches of Morcone and Innamorata, Pareti, just like several other nearby beaches, is a truly peaceful and natural paradise. It is completely surrounded by Mediterranean scrub : pine trees, eucalyptus, prickly pears, palm trees and agaves.
It isn't a very long beach - only about 200 metres - and consists mainly of golden sand mixed with tiny shingle, and the crystal clear, blue water is shallow till quite far out.
There are two other small beaches on either side, and you can get to them either by walking across the rocks or swimming.
The numerous facilities available on the beach, make it perfect for families with small children or for those who like to have everything they need at hand.
There is also a wide choice of sports activities like scuba diving on the beach, and this probably explains why Jacques Mayol and Umberto Pellizzari chose it for their apnea world championship.
Sitting between Punta Morcone and Punta Pareti it is well sheltered from the wind and looks out to a truly suggestive panorama of the southern peninsulas of Elba: Capo Stella, Capo di Fonza, Capo Poro and, on a clear day, the Island of Corsica.
Some of the most beautiful beaches on the island, where the water is absolutely crystal clear, are here along the eastern coast of Monte Calamita, in the heart of pristine nature and what is left of the days of the mines; unfortunately you can only get to these beaches by sea: Il Calone, Le Francesche, Calmita Mine, il Cannello and Vetrangoli.
It is easy, just follow the road that connects it to the centre of Capoliveri, about 3 km away; on the contrary, finding a place to park is much more difficult, so unless you are staying in one of the nearby hotels or apartments, you have no choice but to leave your car at the side of the road.
If, on the other hand, you decide not to go by car, you can take advantage of the Minibus service that runs all through the summer from Capoliveri to the beach.
