Bathing establishments on Giglio Island

Sea and Relaxation at one of the equipped beaches

For those who wish to spend a day or the whole holiday in the sun and in relaxation, they will find well-equipped bathing establishments on the four major beaches of Isola del Giglio. Some offer only the hire of sunbeds and umbrellas, others also have cabins, showers, a small bar and the hire of pedalos and boats. It is also possible to practice many of the most popular water sports. All beaches  offer also a smaller part as a “free beach”

While there are 10 bathing establishments on the Campese beach, on the smaller beaches of Cannelle, Caldane and Arenella there is always only one activity.

Campese Beach

All along the Beach of Campese are a succession of bathing establishments that provide sunbeds and umbrellas, cabins, toilets, pedal boats and other services and equipment.

The long, wide beach is divided into two symmetrical parts by a rocky section in the centre. Hence its division into the Torre Area, the part near the Medicean Tower,, and the Faraglione Area on the other side (also called the Residence as of the big structure behind the beach (where the Miniera del Franco once stood).
