The Acquarilli Beach
Acquarilli beach, in the Capo Pini promontory in the Stella Gulf, is not easy to get to, and this is why it is still untouched by man. It is surrounded by garrigue and lush, Mediterranean bush, and in the spring it is covered by a heavy blanket of broom in full bloom.
The beach is 300 metres long and consists of black sand and pebbles. The emerald green water is unbelievably clear, so it is perfect for snorkeling lovers.
The beach, divided into two parts by a line of rocks, is exposed to southern winds, and the part on the right is perfect for nudists.
The beach is completely natural and very quiet, because to get there you need to go down a steep, winding track that starts off at the road, with a difference in level of 50 meters.
The view from the top of the promontory is breathtaking, and you can not only see the whole of the Golfo Stella but even the Island of Montecristo.
The beach is in the Commune of Capoliveri, about 1,7 km after the junction for Lacona on the road from Portoferraio to Porto Azzuro. You will see it as soon as you get to the small car park with payment in the promontory.
