the sea

beaches of San Vincenzo e Rimigliano 

In San Vincenzo and along the Etruscan Coast, you have lots of options for beaches. You can pick from many beach spots with facilities or go for the free beaches. Some are near the town center, great for a stroll after beach time, and others are further away, perfect if you just want to enjoy the sea. To the south, there’s Rimigliano Park, with 8 km of open beach where you can soak up the natural beauty and sea breeze any time of the year.

Golfo di Baratti and Cala Violina 

Baratti is a stunning gulf located between San Vincenzo and Piombino. Its dark sand sparkles in the sunlight because it has tiny bits of iron in it, which was a very important metal back in the Etruscan times. It’s a place where history and art come together, offering a great mix of fun and learning.

One of the top spots here is Calaviolina beach, known for its soft, white sand that makes a violin-like sound when you walk on it. The water is super clear, and the area is surrounded by the beautiful, untouched nature of the upper Maremma region. Since it’s a protected area, you won’t find any beach resorts here.

Elba and other islands

beaches of San Vincenzo e Rimigliano 

You can explore the island of Elba in just one day! Ferries run from Piombino to Elba’s Portoferraio or Porto Azzurro all year. In summer, there are daily boat trips from San Vincenzo with Acquavision (sito ufficiale). Don’t miss Elba’s beautiful beaches like Fetovaia, Pomonte, Cavoli, and Biodola. Remember to bring a snorkel to check out the amazing sea life! For a nice walk, visit charming towns like Capoliveri and Marciana Marina.

Capraia has a picturesque fishing port and is the island’s main hub, with shops and eateries in its hilltop historic centre. Enjoy boat tours to see more of the sea. Giglio Island is known for its gorgeous beaches and scenic hiking trails. Pianosa is a protected area where you can enjoy nature and birdwatching, but only Cala Giovanna beach is open to visitors, with its white sands and clear water.

the natural therms  


A special place built where the Etruscans once had their hot springs. It has two main parts: an outdoor area with a warm water lake, and an indoor area called the Thermarium. Inside, you’ll find whirlpools, a sauna, a steam room, and a spa for relaxing treatments.

la cerreta in sassetta

A special farm hidden in the woods, surrounded by chestnut trees and old oak trees. It’s known for its completely natural spa. The water flows out at a temperature of 51°C and is full of good things like sulphates, calcium, and important minerals. The spa has an indoor area with a whirlpool, sauna, and steam room, plus outdoor pools with naturally hot water.

nature and outdoor activities

horseback and bike riding 

Among the various traditions of the Maremma, one of the best known is that of the “Butteri” on horseback, which has its roots in very ancient times. Today, just like in the old days, it’s possible to go on beautiful horseback rides in nature, through the woods and perhaps with some passes overlooking the sea.

For those who love biking, fall and spring are great times to check out the Etruscan coast and its old villages. The weather is nice all year, the roads aren’t too crowded, and you can pick from challenging hill rides or easier paths by the sea. If mountain biking is more your thing, the hills behind us and the Via dei cavalleggeri from Baratti to Piombino offer lots of trails with awesome views.

nature reserve and archeological park 

We are situated in a seemingly small area, however, one that has experienced a great history with deep roots that have been woven through time to the present day. Every day, you can find something new to do in the many nature reserves and historical parks around here – there’s so much to choose from! With nature all around, each season brings its own special show, making it fun for kids and adults alike. Whether you’re out for a family stroll, with a partner, or just need some alone time, there’s always something to enjoy.

four -legged adventures 

dog beach

The Dog Beach or Bau Beach is a perfect spot for dogs on holiday. It’s a piece of beach where your furry friend can run, jump, and play in the water, meeting other dogs without needing a leash. Everyone can enjoy it! There’s a free part of the beach for those who like a bit more freedom, and there’s also an area with sun loungers and umbrellas for those who prefer a bit of comfort.


You can explore lots of paths along the coast, walking through greenery and beside the blue sea. Enjoy the fresh sea air, stay active, or just clear your head. There are different trails for everyone – some are longer and tougher, and others are shorter and easier. Spring and fall are the best times to go because of the beautiful colours and smells. The weather is nice, and the sun keeps the days bright.

This wine-making tradition has lasted through many years and different cultures, and today, this place is famous all over the world for its amazing wines, like Super Tuscans and Sassicaia, and the Bolgheri DOC label. When you travel the Wine Route, you’ll see a mix of old and new, from ancient wineries to modern ones that use natural methods, all the way from Bolgheri to Castagneto Carducci and Suvereto.
