Acquarilli Naturist Beach (Spiaggia di Acquarilli)
Set in a horseshoe shaped bay on the southern coast of Elba, Acquarilli is a charming little beach that, unlike its neighbours, never attracts a crowd. Spiaggia di Acquarilli is located between the popular beaches of Lido di Capoliveri and Lacona, which are probably the best-known on the island. The reason this little cove remains quiet is that access is a little tricky.
If you are not fortunate enough to be able to park your yacht in the bay then you will have to negotiate the steep path down the tall cliffs. But the effort is definitely worth it.
The beach is made up of a mix of dark volcanic shingle (which gets very hot!) and pebbles which mean the water is super clear - so don’t forget your snorkel. Not only is the water crystal-like but it is a beautiful shade of aquamarine.
Given the low footfall and sheltered, secluded nature of Acquarilli beach it is perhaps not surprising the beach is recognised as being clothing optional. In fact in 2015 the beach became officially naturist back in 2015.
It is generally accepted that the nudist part of the beach is to one side of the rocks in the middle of the beach and the “textile” to the other, although there is no rule to say this.
