This is one of the most rugged and untouched parts of the Island of Elba, where the undisputed queen is Mother nature and where your neighbours are mainly the sea and the sun.
Tombe beach (“tombs”) is so called because some protohistoric tombs were discovered in the nearby area; it is a long stretch of coast on the far southwest side of Elba, so is exposed to the the winds from the southwest, and consists of dark coloured pebbles and pebbles; although they keep the heat, it doesn’t get too hot because there is always a gentle sea breeze to keep you cool.
The beach is about 1 kilometre long, and since it isn’t very easy to get to, nor is there any shade or a bathing establishment, it is perfect for those who love rugged, untouched nature. Although the track down is steep and the surface is uneven, and it takes about 20 minutes to get to the beach, the peace and quiet all around, the breathtaking view of Pianosa and Corsica, and the crystal clear sea all make it more than worth your while.
Once you are down, you can choose from the bigger beach on your left, or the much smaller and sheltered one on your right, somewhat hidden by some rocks that are black with streaks of white quartz. You can walk to the other beach that lies on your left just round the bend along the coastal road.
The path down to the beach is about 1.2 kilometres from Fetovaia and 2,5 kilometres from Pomonte, near a small car park at the side of the road.
