Its crystal-clear waters, especially when the southern wind blows, make you want to take a swim.
“Le Viste” is a beautiful little beach, located in the immediate surroundings of the old town of Portoferraio.
It is situated nearby Villa dei Mulini, the winter residence of Napoleon, and it is dominated by the majestic fortress of “Forte Falcole”.
Its crystal-clear waters, especially when the southern wind blows, make you want to take a swim without even think about that.
The beach is 180 meters long and it is characterized by clear sand and little pebbles of various shapes and colors.
The waters facing the beach, are part of “Lo Scoglietto” marina reserve. This little island, at about a mile far away and reachable by boat, is one of the most beautiful places where to do scuba diving, because of fish abundance.
Not only locals but also tourists love this beach as it is easily reachable on foot from the old town.
On the beach there is a restaurant and a sunbeds and umbrellas rental service.
How to get there
The easiest way to get there is to follow the signs for “Villa dei Mulini”. Near the beach, there is a small car park but the space is limited. It is not so easy to reach the beach as there are about 200 meters to be done from the street.
