Sea and relaxation

Experience the sea of Elba, as a family or as a couple. A romantic sunset by the sea, sipping excellent island wine, basking in the intimacy and atmosphere that only Elba will give you. And if the family is large, with the little ones the absolute protagonists of the vacation, you will discover the convenience of having the beach just a few minutes' walk away, crossing the shady paths of Sant'Andrea, for example, or the picturesque marinas, such as those of Porto Azzurro and Marciana Marina.

Vacationing on an island like Elba has a whole other flavor, and one cannot just call it "a beach vacation." If "vacation" means to disconnect, to go outside the usual patterns of life, as well as to move to a different place than usual, in Elba even more than in other places it means daring a change in our habits.

Give your lifestyle a boost. Often, immediately after a long winter period spent in the city, you find yourself so addicted to your habits that you see change as an arduous and difficult path. But the unique beauty of this island will help you regenerate: turquoise sea, an exceptionally long coastal perimeter full of coves, creeks, and beaches of all kinds: sandy, pebbly, or even black, composed of the finest minerals. Immersed in the scents of the Mediterranean scrub, between baths, you will begin to feel a sense of well-being pervade you and pause to think about your codified habits and how they seem far away. So once you decide it is time to turn your lifestyle around, you will be spoiled for choice: you could enroll in a course of sub to Pareti, or to one of Kayak in Procchio, or even to one of Wind Surf at Lido di Capoliveri. Or, why not, even all three at the same time!

Harmony of body and mind. There are many diving schools on the island, but also other courses taught by experienced professionals who will introduce you to a yoga of well-being. Doing sports surrounded by unspoiled nature is a priceless feeling: as the secrets of an underwater world you did not know, and of surprising small coastal habitats of heart-filling beauty are revealed before you, you will rediscover the harmony of your body and, consequently, of your mind.

Not just a vacation. Vacation can also be this: doing different things than usual and gaining a new awareness of well-being. You will find, then, that that ache that has been plaguing you for a long time will have disappeared, and you will realize that, at the same time, your recurring thoughts will have disappeared, leaving room for feelings of relaxation that you did not expect.

We don't want to say that this island is miraculous-perhaps all islands are a bit miraculous-but certainly Elba, with its concentration of minerals, is imbued with a magical atmosphere, more intense than anywhere else: ideal for those in search of a more intimate inner listening, to improve interaction with the world. If you are looking for a change, you are in the right place.
