If the beaches we have suggested are not enough and you want something more adventurous, what about going to the sea instead of going to the beach?

Sailing is the most beautiful way to see and experience the Tuscan archipelago. Elba, Punta Ala, Castiglione della Pescaia, Giannutri, the mouth of the Ombrone River, the cliffs of Formiche, the Island of Giglio, the Argentario: you will see the Tuscan coast and archipelago, with its hidden coves and beaches that cannot be reached from the inland. Our advice, as usual, is to avoid the most trodden paths, the locations where everyone else is going. This is how...

Forget crammed beaches and sun umbrellas, book a seat on a sailboat and enjoy the purest sea and wildlife experience. "Vuoi fare vela" organises daily outings, for groups of adults or children. You sail and swim during the day, back in the harbour in the evening you remember the good times and the new things you learned on the boat.

Please note that these tours are not organised by us. These are simple suggestions. For more information and sailing tour bookings visit http://www.vuoifarevela.com or call +39 340 7124438 (Samuel).
