Tuscany Beaches in Maremma

The Best in Italy

Maremma is home to the most beautiful of Tuscany beaches lying along a spectacular coastline with the turquoise and emerald green Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Seas - the Mar Ligure and the Mar Tirreno.

It is here that you will find the most beautiful beach in Italy.

Explore each one along the spectacular Etruscan coast, the Costa degli Etruschi, in Maremma Livornese. With the unspoilt Golfo di Baratti watched over by Populonia, where the Etruscans chose to found their only city by the sea. Drive along the approach road to the Gulf and from your first glimpse of the glistening sea in the bay, you will appreciate why.

And then there are the Tuscany beaches in Maremma Grossetana, with the blue sweep of the Golfo di Follonica, the stunning Costa D'Argento, Monte Argentario and the Tuscan archipelago islands of Giglio, Giannutri and Elba. You can even see the islands of Montecristo and Corsica from this stretch of coastline.

Special places throughout the year, for me, they are at their most beautiful out of the summer holiday season when the all the parasols and paraphernalia are gone and they revert to their natural state.

Maremma in the spring, early summer and autumn is an exceptionally stunning place. Her beaches no less so. Imagine a white sand cove or a black sand beach stretching into the distance with no one but yourselves (or just a few others in the know) on it. Paradise. With their palm trees and warm crystal clear waters, you would be hard pressed to know that these beaches are in Europe and not the Caribbean or another exotic destination.

It is no wonder, therefore, that these Tuscany beaches are highly favoured by Italians from nearby Florence, Siena & Rome. And Austrian, German, and Swiss families who return to Maremma year after year for their holidays.


The best Tuscany beaches are the secret ones...

A hidden Maremma cove for those who like to walk - because it will take you some time to get there! - and families who love a bit of adventure. You will get to see some large wild boar footprints, and some blood-spewing beetles along the way there ;)

A secret Tuscany beach nestled between pillows

A secret Tuscany beach nestled between pillow lavas in a nature reserve you wouldn't know was there! But you will have to walk through head height French gorse and wild fragrant virgin's bower clematis to reach it.
