I am not a big fan of sand beach, I avoid it especially when noisy Coca-Cola sponsored event going on there (though probably good for families). I found the rocky part of the beach more enjoyable. Not too deep, many big fishes under the water. Very ideal place for snorkling. My friend got sticked by a sea urchin. Best to... More

Belongs to the best beaches on Elba, a nice sandy beach of around 300/400 mtrs situated between rocks, nice for snorkling. Very very clear water, azur blue water, really one of the nicest beaches around.

Elba in general is breathtaking. The beaches one more beautiful than the other, if that's possible. Cavoli was amazing, the water was crystal clear, all shades of blue. I could have stayed in the water forever, just cool enough to be refreshing. All I can say it was amazing in every sense of the word. A must...Elba is a must... More

even if you only have an hour this is a great beach to stop at while driving around the Island. Lie on the beach go in the water or just stop for a bite to eat or something to drink.

Was far from the ferry in Cavo, but worth it. We arrived at 1:30 and found a parking spot along the road without a problem, although probably some days it is very hard to get to. The umbrella rental was a good price, and the crystal clear water was fantastic. The beach was a good size and we even jumped... More

Very nice beach, but small enough to get overcrowded by the middle of the day. The best is to come early. Interesting for snorkeling too!

I love the beach and I love salt water. This is a great beach to relax or take a walk to relax and clear your head. There were not very many people when I went. The sand is clean and the water clear.
