At the far end of the sea front next to the sixteenth century Tower, symbol of Marciana Marina, you have before you what is no doubt the best known and most popular beach both with locals and by tourists.
Whether you walk or cycle there from the town centre, Fenicia Beach is very easy to get to. It consists of pebbles and medium sized, roundish granite pebbles that over the years the sea has made smooth, and is famous all over Elba. This is the reason why the personnel of the two bathing establishments to be found there decided to make your days on the beach more enjoyable: as well as providing mats for you to sit or lie on, there is also a cement platform on one side and a sandy area on the other, as well as a wooden solarium.
There is a wide choice of facilities here: sun beds, sun umbrellas, bathing huts, showers and a small bar. At one of the establishments there is also a small swimming pool with a Jacuzzi suitable for children.
The beach is almost 100 metres long and is free in the middle part; exposed to north and northwest winds, there is a wide variety of fish in the crystal clear sea bed , so it is perfect for lovers of snorkelling all along the coast as far as Punta Nasuto, from where you can also see the Island of Capraia.
If you follow the cement path on the left hand side of the beach – very popular with teenagers who like to sunbathe there – that runs alongside some flat rocks, you will get to a tiny, white pebbles beach known as La Fenicetta; if, on the other hand, you like diving, just go to the rocks at the foot of the Medicean Tower on the opposite side.
The car park at the sea front has an hourly cost, but there are free ones at the back of the town, only 2 or 3 hundred metres from the beach.
Easy to get to, just go along the sea front in Marciana Marina until you get to the Medicean Tower.
