The south side's beaches

Lacona beach

Also known as the ‘Big Beach’: originally a lake (hence the name) and more than a kilometre in length, it is second in size only to Marina di Campo beach. A sandy beach protected by a wide gulf (exposed only to warm southerly winds) with, in certain points, a backdrop of sand dunes belonging to the Tuscan Archipelago National Park.

The beach has many points of access and offers every amenity for the sunbather and water sport lover alike. It is the ideal beach for families with its shallow waters and sandy seabed. The guests of the Hotel Capo di Stella will enjoy this beach just a short drive away from the hotel.

Margidore beach

This is a wide beach, a mixture of dark pebble and sand, overlooking Golfo Stella. Fairly sheltered and a well-equipped landing place for pleasure boats. Not very well sign-posted yet easily reached along a short slip road.

Capostella

The long outcrop separating the gulfs of Stella and Lacona is mainly high and rocky. However, the tiny streams that run across it towards the sea open up into enchanting coves. Almost all are pebble and shingle and fairly exposed.

They are hidden between the surrounding outcrops and are therefore quiet and secluded. Easily reached by boat, some also by footpath, usually private and not easily reached by foot: the roads on Capo Stella are not open to traffic.

Norsi beach

Fascinating beach, renowned for its black sand and surrounding coastline, particularly breathtaking are its crystalline waters that reflect the brilliant green of the surrounding vegetation.
