Behind the steep white cliffs along the coastline of Montebello with lush, Mediterranean bush all around, you will find Seccione beach (also called Prunini by the locals), yet another jewel along the coast of Portoferraio.
There are cliffs to the left, and the 180 metre long beach consists of white pebbles mixed with sand. This beach is both very beautiful and interesting especially if you wish to do some scuba diving along the sea bed.
Despite its crystal clear water and beautiful sea bed the beach is usually very quiet, maybe because it's not very easy to get there due to the 120 steps you have to go down in order to get there.
It is the perfect beach for those who love nature.
Take the road from Portoferraio in the direction of Enfola and Viticcio and , and shortly after the junction for Portoferraio (Viale Luigi Enaudi) you will see the sign for the beach.
As such there isn't a proper, free car park so you have no choice but to leave your car in one of the open spaces along the road.
You can also get there by thefrequent, daily minibus service from Portoferraio
