Discovering the lower Maremma: the Silver Coast, the Maremma coastline rich in beaches and seaside villages

Those who love Tuscany, especially the Maremma area, can take advantage of the opportunity to spend a few days at the sea when staying in Capalbio.
In fact in Capalbio coast and silver coast, it is possible to enjoy enchanting beaches that can satisfy every need.

The beautiful Silver Coast and its beaches

It is not known whether the name Costa d'Argento (Silver Coast) derives from the nearby Argentario or whether it is due to the particular colouring of the beach, which in some places has a silvery tint and in others black, betraying its ferrous origin. What is certain is the fact that this stretch of coastline from Talamone to Capalbio and the border with Lazio is very popular with holidaymakers.
Also to be considered is the variety of the coastline, which alternates significant sandy shores with severe cliffs that sometimes conceal small, intimate ravines where one can spend a whole day at the sea.
Certainly, during a holiday in Capalbio, one can visit characteristic seaside villages such as Talamone, Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano to discover the beauty of places that have maintained their original essence.
On the other hand, the untamed nature combined with the tranquillity of free sandy beaches and a clean sea are elements that invite one to experience a holiday of serenity and relaxation, without forgetting that those who wish to take advantage of comfortable locations where they can find all the conveniences of the case, can go to one of the many bathing establishments present.

The beaches of Maremma

Like the VIPs in Capalbio, the Costa d'Argento is an attraction capable of stimulating holidaymakers. For example, in the surroundings of the characteristic Maremma village, the coastline has a beach consisting of dark sand that in some places is free and in others occupied by establishments where one can find refreshment places such as bars and restaurants to taste traditional Tuscan cuisine.
The beaches of Macchiatonda, Chiarone and Torba are the main beaches of Capalbio and are also suitable for families with small children because of the sandy shoreline However, some care must because the water soon becomes deep.
The shoreline is characterised by a large pine forest and lush vegetation that maintains the wild and natural setting.
Then there is the Argentario promontory that acts as a divider between two panoramas. Argentario turns out to be almost all rocky with severe cliffs plunging into the Tyrrhenian Sea not without delightful sandy coves. The downside is that most of these oases are not easy to access but if one is willing to go to the trouble to reach them, the reward is crystal-clear water and breathtaking scenery.
The ideal thing is to hire a boat with which to explore the coast, where there are several caves and the islets of Argentarola, Isola Rossa located on the Porto Santo Stefano side, and Isolotto, which remains near Porto Ercole. It is advisable to take this suggestion into consideration as snorkelling enthusiasts will be amazed by the immense prairies of coral and posidonia that can easily be admired underwater.
In the municipality of Porto Ercole, the Acqua Dolce beach is enchanting. Its pebbly shoreline allows the sea water to take on an even more crystalline hue even when, after a few metres, its seabed becomes sandy. In this case, the beauty comes from the unspoilt nature that makes the place truly spectacular.
One of the most important beaches on the entire Costa d'Argento is La Feniglia: a 7-kilometre-long stretch of golden sand that acts as a trait d'union between the Argentario and the mainland, forming a nature reserve with many accesses to the sea. The seabed is shallow and sandy and it is especially good for children and long walks along the shoreline.
Other beaches we suggest are La Bionda - a lovely little cove protected from the open sea by a barrier of rocks that allows one to bathe peacefully - , Bagni di Domiziano, ideal for children because it has a shallow sea bed, and La Giannella, a good 8 kilometres long, which connects Argentario to the mainland on the northern side.
Also not to be missed is Spiaggia Lunga, which has a silky, sandy shoreline sheltered from the winds by its half-moon shape and a gently sloping seabed. The emerald-coloured sea blends beautifully with the surrounding nature.
