Some useful tips for planning your holiday on Giglio Island
- FERRY BOOKING
For those who want to take the car to the island, it is recommended to book the place for the car on the ferry in advance especially if you arrive or leave on the weekend, during a holiday or in the period from mid-June and mid September. The same is valid alos for the return on Sunday afternoon also for passengers only.
- VEHICLE RESTRICTIONS
In the three central weeks of August the access of the island for vehicles is restricted if you have an italian number plate. You need to stay at least for 4 nights on Giglio and have to fill out out a self-certification: Autocertificazione PDF.
Any free camping with tents or campers is prohibited throughout the Giglio territory. Camping is only allowed at the Giglio Campese campsite.
Because of the immanent danger of fire, it is strictly forbidden to light fires.
The code for Giglio is 0564 from Italy and +39 0564 internationally. Mobile networks works well on the eastern coast while there is no network on the south-west coast.
- TRINKING WATER
The tap water of the Giglio comes from a desalination plant located on the road to the Cannelle beach. When not filtered it is used usually only for cooking. There are two fountains in Giglio Castello from the Selvaggia spring and in Giglio Porto from the S. Giorgio spring where you can get free trinking water.
- NATIONAL PARK
The protected areas of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park on Giglio are exclusively land in the southern part of the island. No stretch of the sea is protected, so it is allowed to navigate, anchor, stop, dive and fish on the entire coast.
- VISITING WITH DOG
When visiting Giglio with your dog please note that during the summer months the 4 main beaches Campese, Cannelle, Arenella and Caldane are restricted. However almost all lidos (stabilimenti balneari) accept dogs.
