La Feniglia Beach
The Spiaggia della Feniglia, or just La Feniglia is a vast expanse of sandy beach which connects the promontory of Argentario to the Tuscan mainland. With 7 kilometres of sand arcing its way along the bay it isn’t difficult to find a quiet spot, although it does tend to be quite busy at either end of the beach.
If you do make it to the middle you will be rewarded with a pristine backdrop which makes up part of the protected Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve (Riserva Naturale Duna Feniglia). With pine-covered dunes and a large lagoon to the rear, and the clear blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea in front this really is a lovely spot. Keep your eyes peeled and you may even spot some of the native fallow deer or even some flamingos if you’re lucky.
With a paved pathway running behind the length of the beach it isn’t as hard to find a spot of solitude even in the summer months. The best way to explore the beach is to hire a bicycle.
This gently sloping beach is a good family-friendly option as it is generally safe and there are a few places to grab a bite to eat. You’ll find these at either end where you can also hire sunbeds, umbrellas and a variety of water-sports equipment.
