Weather conditions and forecast in Elba

Elba has a typical sea climate, with rather mild temperatures even during the winter. It seldom rains, especially during the summer.

The most frequent wind is the Maestrale (north-west) that helps to make your days on the beach a little cooler; during the summer months the most frequent is the warmer Scirocco (south-east).

On the other hand the less frequent Libeccio (south-west) and Ponente (west) are less frequent but much stronger on these days and the sea can become quite rough

The crossings to and from the mainland are seldom cancelled because of bad weather, at the most once or twice a year during the winter months, but very rarely for a whole day.

The ice-cold Tramontana (north) and Grecale (north-east) hardly ever blow during the winter; fotunately, thanks to the conformation of the coastline, Elba is always sheltered, regardless of which wind is blowing.
