Padulella Beach


Crystal clear water and marine reserve make this beach an oasis in nature.

The water is crystal clear, the beach is of rather coarse white pebbles, like almost all the beaches on the coast north of Portoferraio. Opposite is the Protected Marine Reserve that runs from Punta Falcone to Punta di Capo Bianco and reaches the islet of Scoglietto. The beach is equipped, with free parts and quite busy. A nearby cove, located on the right side of the beach, is within easy walking distance by sea.
