The Cannelle beach is one of the gems of the Giglio Island. With its white sand, transparent waters and quality services, it is an unmissable destination for anyone visiting the island. Whether you are a lover of relaxation, snorkelling or simply want to enjoy a breathtaking landscape, the Cannelle beach has something to offer for everyone.
Cannelle beach, often described as the “Caribbean beach” of Giglio Island, is a true paradise for sea lovers. Located on the east coast of the island, this beach overlooks the splendid Argentario promontory and offers a landscape reminiscent of the most sought-after tropical destinations.
Characteristics and Natural Beauties
The Cannelle beach extends for about 100 meters and is characterized by very fine white sand, composed of quartz grains in its central part. This sand, together with the crystal clear and shallow waters near the shore, creates an ideal environment for families and children. The reduced depth of the water and the presence of rocks at the ends of the beach also make this place perfect for snorkelling enthusiasts, who can explore a seabed rich in posidonia and small colored fish.
Services and Comforts
The Cannelle beach offers a series of services that make it particularly welcoming for visitors. During the summer season, part of the beach is occupied by the “Cannelle Wonderful Beach” bathing establishment, which provides umbrellas, sunbeds and other comforts. Furthermore, directly on the beach, there is the “Cannelle on the Beach” bar restaurant-pizzeria, also open some evenings of the week, where it is possible to taste delicious local specialties and refresh yourself with drinks and ice creams.
How to reach the Cannelle beach
There are several ways to reach the Cannelle beach from Giglio Porto. One of the most characteristic methods is the taxi boat service, which transports tourists directly to the beach. However, for the 2021 season, this service is suspended due to the lack of repairs to the jetty on the beach. Alternatively, you can use shared land taxis, which offer a short and scenic 1.4 km journey. For those who prefer to walk, the beach can be easily reached on foot in about 20 minutes. Finally, for those who want more freedom, renting a scooter can be an excellent option to explore the island and reach Cannelle beach quickly and in a fun way.
