Motor boats, sail boats and canoes

Sailing along the coast of the Island of Elba , a voyage of discover…

The ever changing shoreline, small sandy coves or shingle beaches, sheer white rockface or dark black sand. Every little bay is unique in itself and multiple types of rock and sand transform the colour of the sea. You will be amazed by the depth and range of colours you will see whilst navigating round the island in a soft breeze.

There are numerous places to rent speed boats. If you don’t feel up to navigating a boat on your own you can take an organized boat trip. Several different excursions leave from the village harbour every day. You can visit the surrounding islands of the archipelago or take a round trip of the island or even a short afternoon trip along the coastline. We suggest you also try canoeing in the bay with a professional tour guide. Several excusions take place all over the island and you certainly do not have to have canoed before to take part!

Sailing schools. Marina di Campo has its own sailing and surf school where you can participate in weekly courses or if you prefer, one-to-one lessons. This is a much loved pastime on the island and all the local children learn to sail in the summer!

Some of the beaches and small coves on the island cannot be reached on foot and there is no better way to explore these stretches of coastline than by boat. You will find yourself surrounded by the blue sea and green vegetation and will be able to taste the real essence of this beautiful island.
