The Beach of Felciaio
It is a small, quiet and peaceful beach not far from the better known one called Lido di Capoliveri, and is on the southern side of the Island of Elba.
Some rocks divide the two halves of the beach. The part you get to first from the path consists of fine sand and pebbles, and it looks on to a small bay that is partially closed off by natural and artificial cliffs. What makes Felciaio unique are the rocks brought there years ago when the owners of the villa above the beach decided to build a small port for their boats, and this has given birth to a sort of natural swimming pool that is very suggestive and in no way spoils the surrounding area.
The other beach is a more stony one, and some parts are covered by dried Posidonia brought in by the sea.
There are a lot of fish in between the rocks that are all around, and this makes the crystal clear sea perfect for lovers of snorkeling.
The only way to get to the beach is on foot along the small, narrow road that leads to the car park (€ 7/day- € 5 from 6 p.m.). Although two roads lead to the car park we advise you to take the one on the right along the road for Lido di Capoliveri beach, on the west.
