Le Cannelle Beach (Spiaggia delle Cannelle)

Le Cannelle Beach - Italy
© Richard Grant

The Spiaggia delle Cannelle lies on the eastern coast of the little Tuscan island of Giglio. Backed by steep Mediterranean slopes this beach of fine white sand is caressed by crystal clear water which ranges from bright blues to emerald.

Despite its remote location off the coast of Tuscany, Le Cannelle always draws a crowd in the summer. You will generally find a mix of day-trippers from the mainland and others who are staying on the island. Either way access is generally from the island’s main settlement - Giglio Porto. 

From here you can make the 20 minute walk, take a water taxi or drive the panoramic hilltop road which follows the coast.

Le Cannelle is an ideal family beach; there are plenty of amenities at hand and the gently sloping sand means it is fairly shallow. It’s also a great place to snorkel with plenty of rocky nooks and crannies to explore.
