Cavoli Beach, Island of Elba

The Cavoli beach

Cavoli, one of Elba's most popular beaches, is in a sheltered, south western position of the island, and this means you can often go in for a swim even during the cooler months; more than 300 metres of sand and giant rocks, as well as its crystal clear water, make it a perfect beach for children.

The name of the beach comes from the word "cavili", the huge blocks of granite that were once extracted in the nearby granite quarries.

The beach consists partly of white, coarse grain, granite sand and partly of round, smooth pebbles.

Facilities: bathing establishments, pedalo and kayak rental, bar, restaurants, bazar, newsagent's, tobacconist's, guarded car park, Wi-Fi, toilettes for the disabled.

You can get to the famous "Grotta Azzurra" (Blue Grotto) to the left of the beach along the coast by pedalo or small boat.
