TOP FOUR BEACHES
A Mediterranean maquis awaits you, framing beaches and coves lapped by a clear sea that bathes a long and varied coastline!
Known for its natural heritage and culinary delicacies, the Maremma is also sea and beautiful beaches where the Mediterranean maquis peeps out. Indeed, the Maremma is home to some of the most beautiful beaches Tuscany has to offer, with waters ranging from deep blue to sky blue.
Whether you venture out to discover the beaches of the Maremma Natural Park or relax on the beach where Garibaldi’s Thousand stopped, you will find beaches in Maremma that are a true spectacle of nature.
Are you ready?
Let’s discover the 4 most beautiful beaches recommended by Casa in Maremma Tuscany Village for your next summer holiday!
The beach of Cala Martina, famous for the stopover of Garibaldi’s Thousand to gather other fighters, is a small, quiet cove near the well-known Cala Violina.
Like the latter, Cala Martina offers tourists a nice place to take a swim in the cleanest waters and relax while admiring the Mediterranean scrub all around.
Moreover, Cala Martina is characterised by the presence of small stones and a few rocks, making it perfect for snorkelling.
To reach Cala Martina from Villaggio Casa in Maremma, you can proceed by mountain bike or on foot either from Puntone di Scarlino or from the car park at Pian d’Alma (the same car park for going to Cala Violina). Cala Martina can be reached by an easy walk through the woods, precisely because the beach is set in a splendid frame of Mediterranean scrubland that opens onto the sea.
The beach of Collelungo is one of the most characteristic locations in the Maremma Grossetana in the heart of the Maremma Natural Park, with a long, wide beach of fine sand that in many places forms high dunes.
Due to its particular beauty, Collelungo beach is often included in Legambiente’s rankings of the best beaches in Italy. It is a heavenly beach, both for the golden colour of the sand and for the tranquillity and silence that prevails even in August during the high season.
What makes it even more evocative are the two towers in the park overlooking the beach: the Renaissance Tower of Collelungo and the Medieval Tower of Castelmarino.
The beach can be accessed by two routes: directly from the Parco dell’Uccellina along the A2 Le Torri path (about 6 km long) or from the beach at Marina di Alberese and walking in a southerly direction.
Coastline of Castiglione della Pescaia
Just a few minutes away from Casa in Maremma Tuscany Village is the seaside resort of Castiglione della Pescaia, a tourist destination that boasts the most beautiful sea in Italy and that in 2014 earned it first place in the historic 5 Vele award, assigned by Legambiente, surpassing Sardinian beaches.
Castiglione della Pescaia proves, with its sandy beaches that are equipped in some places and free in others, to be an excellent location for tourists who love contact with nature and the beautiful sea, without renouncing comfort and services.
The various beaches along this stretch of coastline are also perfect for windsurfing, surfing and kitesurfing in Tuscany. In fact, in the Castiglione della Pescaia area, exactly on the Marze coastline, several kitesurfing schools or kitesurfing equipment hire can be found.
Cala di Forno
The beach of Cala di Forno is a small tongue of golden sand set in the promontory of the Monti dell’Uccellina, within the Maremma Natural Park.
To reach this beach, it is necessary to walk along a 12 km footpath inside the park, immersing oneself in the unspoilt Mediterranean maquis.
Exactly, you have to walk along the A4 path for about a couple of hours, a flat path parallel to the coast that in many places offers beautiful landscapes that, on clear days, also allow you to admire the various islands of the Tuscan Archipelago.
A unique reward from Mother Nature for the exertions of the walk! Once you reach the Cala di Forno beach, clear water, absolute silence and, often, the park’s fallow deer that come for a very close ‘hello’ await you!
This beach is a real experience, allowing you to get close to nature and its animals in a unique way that only this place can offer.
