Although considered a single, long beach, the tiny and very pretty coves in Viticcio are actually five all together, and they all face the gulf bearing the same name.
They all consist of shingle, that over the years the waves have made smooth, mixed with pebbles and stones that are various shades of grey, and cliffs covered in pine trees and Mediterranean bush separate them from each other, so they are perfect for sunbathing.Only the two beaches in the middle are easy to get to, just go down some steps; the only way to get to the others is by boat or by walking along the cliffs.
The beaches are so pristine and natural precisely because there are no facilities on them (the restaurants and bars belong to the hotels so they are along the road), so are perfect for those who prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle and enjoy a quiet and relaxing day on the beach.
The area of both the Enfola promontory and the gulf in Viticcio is pristine and natural, and this plus the crystal clear water make the entire area truly unique and suggestive, and on a clear day you can see as far as the islands of Capraia and Corsica.
The sea bed lies below beautiful, crystal clear water whose colour goes from blue to turquoise and it is even more beautiful on days when a Scirocco wind is blowing.
The beaches in Viticcio are only 6 km from Portoferraio, so are easy to get to either by car - just follow the signs - or by the public bus service and tourist bus service that run during the summer. Once you get to Viticcio, a short walk along one of the three pleasant paths very near the hotels in the area lead to these quiet beaches.
