Zupignano beach (also known as Zuppigliano) is quite big (about 180 metres long and up to 8 metres wide), and is rugged and truly beautiful above all from a geological point of view.
The only way to reach it is by sea, and since it is only about 1 nautical mile north of Bagnaia, you can even sail to it in a canoe.
In some parts It consists of tiny, light brown, smooth stones of various sizes, while in others you will find fine sand.
It is very different from most of the other beaches in Elba, because it sits at the foot of some of the most rugged clifftops in Elba that seem to want to push it down into the sea. The cliffs have been formed from layers of friable rock, so it is dangerous to stay at the foot of them.
Hint from Infoelba: Precisely because of the risk of rocks falling on your head,don't be tempted to stand at the foot in search of shade; better to bring a sun umbrella with you and stay away from the area.
The perfect beach if you want peace and quiet.
There are no facilities of any sort so it is mostly yachtsmen who go there to moor their boats opposite the beach, especially on a day when a Scirocco wind, a south wind or any other eastern wind is blowing.
