Close encounters in Elba's own, little Camargue

This typically Mediterranean marsh habitat, so reminiscent of the Camargue, is a special marine biocoenosis rich with fish, crustaceans, molluscs, and about thirty species of birdlife, both resident and migratory. A varied ecosystem, it is an open-air biology laboratory providing close encounters with herons, egrets, flamingos, and a host of our other feathered friends, and above all offering our youngest guests the right tools for a proper education in biodiversity.

Cammino della Rada

The result of a requalification design that has garnered multiple honours, and a virtuous example of how the territory is cared for and used, Cammino della Rada, the “harbour path,” is a highly scenic pedestrian coastal itinerary that links the octagonal Torre del Martello (or Torre della Linguella), the tower standing sentinel over the Medici dock, to the age-old, spectacular Rocca del Volterraio, the dominating eagles nest. The pedestrian coastal itinerary crosses the urban area of Portoferraio and then, step by step, reaches the ancient salt pans, the Terme Isola d’Elba thermal baths, Hotel Airone, the seafaring village of San Giovanni, the Roman Villa in Le Grotte, Schiopparello, the Magazzini marina, the Ottone beach, and the can’t miss small, Romanesque church of Santo Stefano alle Trane
Mediterranean maquis, oak forests, cork groves, tamarisk, and wetlands, but also Roman, Medieval, and Renaissance remains, alternate magically in a perfect semicircle embracing the places characteristic of Portoferraio’s harbour, touching upon areas of natural, historic, and religious interest, as well as industrial archaeology sites.
Carried out in coordination between Elba2020Team, Italia Nostra, Legambente, and Aithale, the design obtained the patronage of the Municipality of Portoferraio, as well as support from Arcipelago Toscano National Park, which introduced Cammino della Rada into the good practices of the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism.
