The coast: Sea and Boat tours

The Maremma coastline, on the Tyrrhenian sea, boasts long sandy beaches bordered by dunes dotted with marine daffodils and evergreen shrubs, against the backdrop of a dense pine wood. The beach stretches from Punta Ala to Castiglione della Pescaia and Marina di Grosseto, also taking in Principina a Mare and the bays of Marina di Alberese in the Maremma Nature Park. This is one of the loveliest shorelines in Italy. It is also the setting for spectacular encounters between land and sea, where wild beaches alternate with organised bathing establishments.

Probably the best way to explore these places is by boat, which will enable you to discover little bays and inlets that can only be reached by sea, surrounded by the sharp scents of the Mediterranean macchia and aromatic herbs, wedged between the cliffs. A trip of this sort on crystal-clear waters is an adventure not to be missed.

The staff at L’Andana and Casa Badiola can reserve you a sailing boat or a motor-boat and skipper who can take you for a delightful cruise towards the north to visite Elba, Capraia, Il Giglio and Giannutri, the islands in the Tuscan archipelago, or southwards to discover the Silver Coast.
