The Tuscan Archipelago includes seven big islands and three small islands each one with its own identity and original features for flora and fauna. The entire territory is protected inside the eponymous National Park that aims to preserve the unicity of each single island and to maintain the marine environment free from corruption.
The largest and most populated island of the archipelago is Elba, located just a few miles from the promontory of Piombino and linked to it by an hourly ferry service.
Elba is even the most tourist island of the archipelago: it offers many beaches with sand or gravel, a trail network of great extension, mediterranean vegetation, an excellent gastronomy, archeological sites and many possibilities of sport and relax.
The islands of Gorgona, Pianosa, Giglio, Giannutri, Capraia and Montecristo are just as spectacular and have to be visited. But because they are located in a national park in a few islands the public access is controlled by the State. Landing on Pianosa is restricted, and Montecristo can be visited only with a special permit and it’s strictly forbidden entering the water.
