4 • Isola del Giglio
The island's port is located on the east coast of the island. The built-up area, originally made up of fishermen's houses, develops around it and is characterized by the promenade and streets that open into the characteristic Piazza della Dogana, considered the island's living room. Among the monuments of historical interest, the Torre del Saraceno, of medieval origins, and the Church of the Madonna del Giglio stand out.
Giglio Castello is located in the central, highest and internal part of the island, to see the imposing Rocca aldobrandesca and the well-preserved walls. Among the beaches not to be missed are the Campese beach, located within a bay on the west coast about 15 minutes from the port, it is the largest beach on the island and its sand is dark red. It is also known for its beautiful sunsets.
Another beach is Cala delle Cannelle located on the east coast south of the port. The sand is clear and the sea is ideal for those who practice snorkeling. Finally we point out the Arenella beach, one of the most beautiful for its sceneries that alternate light sand and rocks.
