Swimming in the unpolluted seabed of the island of Pianosa has been allowed since the summer of 2013. With the collaboration of the Island of Elba Diving Authority, the Tuscan Archipelago National Park infact now grants this, though only to a limited number of people at a time.
At the moment there are only about ten areas where you are allowed to go, all clearly marked off with buoys, but access is allowed solely through certified diving schools and solely if you are accompanied by the Region of Tuscany environmental underwater guides. It must be said however that this is only a trial period, granted by the Park Authorities after much research and scientific monitoring.
For lovers of deep sea diving, this is a chance in a lifetime to see one of the richest areas of fauna in the Meditrerranean.
