Elba Island: The Must-Do Activities

Elba Island: What to do when you get there?

When the French exiled Napoleon in 1814 to Elba Island, they might have not considered that they were sending him to an incredible exotic paradise for a one-year vacation!

The Elba Island is green gem in the Tuscan Archipelago, easily accessible from the mainland by daily ferries from Piombino to Portoferro. It is an island full of wonders: crystal clear waters lapping golden beaches, granite rocks rising from the vegetation and overhanging the sea. Warm winds carry flowers’ perfumes and voices from the sea: close your eyes and feel at one with the world!

Discovering the Elba Island is an adventure: the coast is very diverse and can be explored by sailing or by kayaking, testing your endurance in a magical tour around the island.

The clean waters allow you to practice scuba diving and freediving: the best ways to see submarine amenities and prosperous life!

If you prefer land activities, Elba Island has a lot to offer as well! The hilly territory is ideal for biking, trekking, horse riding, and rock climbing!

What are you waiting for? Come and live unforgettable memories by exploring the Elba Island!

Half day private snorkelling trip run by Rio Diving based in Rio Marina, Elba, Italy. Fantastic trip. The staff at Rio Diving were brilliant. They were very helpful and kind and took us to the best spots. All equipment provided. Even recommended the best places to eat and the best beaches that day given the weather.

Très bien pour apprendre la plongée. Cependant, le spot n'est pas très impressionnant. Juste parfait pour les premiers pas en plongée. Mais une fois la technique compris et acquise, pas beaucoup de chose a voir.
