Beach of Laconella
Laconella is a truly natural beach, smaller and quieter than its “sister” beach Lacona.
This small beach is only 150 metres long, and consists of white sand, with large pebbles on the left and the “V” shaped breathtaking cliffs known as Punta Contessa, that go right down as far as the sea, where you can still see the old artillery battery settlements dating back to World War II on the right; it lies on the right hand side of the Gulf of Lacona, on the southern side of the Island of Elba.
The water is turquoise blue and unbelievably clear, and the entire area, including the tiny, fine pebbles beach behind the cliffs of Punta Contessa, is very popular among snorkeling lovers.
The beach is on the right hand side of the Golfo di Lacona. Take the road that goes from Lacona to Marina di Campo, then take the first turning on your left and follow the signs for the Laconella Campsite. The car park is on the right hand side at the entrance to the campsite. Keep going, and a short walk amidst rosemary bushes will take you right to the beach.
