This cape is one the most important for elban geology. Sitting on the beautiful and spectacular rocks (granite with giant minerals) and swimming in the cristalline water is priceless. Maybe busy during high season but surely worths.

The biggest problem might be finding a parking spot, especially in high season. But it's worth the try. You can choose between a sandy beach and rocks. Snorkling is really great here. Be carefull entering the water, but once in the views underwater are beautifull. If you love snorkling, this is one of the best spots on Elba.

This is the best beach I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. The area is just amazingly beautiful. There's a small sandy area that can be a little crowded. But a short walk away there are additional places to spread out on amazing seaside rock formations. Also some decent snorkeling to be had. We visited just prior to high season... More

We almost didn't have place for our umbrellas but all effort to come here worth. There are couple of park places around. Make sure you pay parking otherwise... Water is crystal clear and warm. Beach is just to small for everyone.

We stayed in Sant'Andrea for 7 nights and loved every minute of it. The beach is very nice and the sunbeds and umbrellas are only 10 euros for the full day. The sea is so clear and great to swim in as you can go out for about 50 metres and it is still only up to your chest. The... More

I've been to many beaches on the Eastern part of Elba island but none of them compares to this one. Getting there is quite difficult but it's worth the effort. Plenty of good restaurants and places to have something for eating.
