Where to Camp in Elba Island, Italy

Written by Clarice Subiaco

Who said that camping cannot be exclusive and elegant? If you love Italy and are passionate about nature and sea, Elba Island is surely a perfect fit.

This beautiful island is located in the Tuscan archipelago and is rich in nature and exclusive places.

To help you out finding the most exclusive campsite I just wrote down a brief list:

Camping Scaglieri Village: located in Portoferraio, the principal harbour of the island, this camping village overlooks the beautiful bay of Golfo della Biodola, characterized by its typical Mediterranean scrub on the homonymous village. Here you can find different accommodation solutions such as a well equipped camping, but also cottages, chalets de luxe, apartments for those who love to be spoiled during their vacations. The camping gives access to the beautiful beach of Golfo della Bidola, which provides surfing, diving, canoeing services.

Camping Lacona: located between Portoferraio and Porto Azzurro, this campsite is only 100 meters away from the beach. The whole surface of the campsite is overshadowed by characteristic maritime pines, eucalyptus and other species typical of the Mediterranean scrub. This campsite is particularly suitable for those who travel with kids: during July and August there is a intense entertainment activities (sports, baby-club, shows, etc.).

Elbadoc Camping Village: Located on the north eastern side of the Island, near the bay of Rio Marina, this camping village is characterized by a lush nature that surrounds it. This place is ideal for those who want to stay in a very intimate space and find some peace and relax from the everyday life. It also provide space for caravans and beautiful wooden bungalows for those who need more comfort.

Camping in Casa dei Prati: located in Capoliveri, this camping village overlooks the enchanting Gulf of Lacona. It provides its visitors with all services and facilities: playgrounds for kids, gym, pools, soccer and volleyball fields, and much more. Ideal for those who love sports.

Camping Arrighi: located in Porto Azzurro, this family-ran camping village is only a few meters away from the beautiful beach of Barbarossa. It opens from April to November and provides large spaces for tents and caravans and free access to electricity. Inside the campsite there is also a superb restaurant which will delight visitors with its home made pizzas.

Stella Mare: Immerse in an untouched nature, this campsite is located directly on the beach of Capo di Stella, Laconia. This location combines safe sandy beaches, suitable for kids, to little rocky hidden bays for those who prefer a little bit of adventure. The village of Laconia provides also many facilities for water sports such as scuba diving, kite surf, etc.

La Foce: located on the Gulf of Marina di Campo, this campsite is ideal for relaxing holidays since it is surrounded  by the beautiful natural park of Marina di Campo. It has more 100 pitches for tents and also maxi-caravans for 4/5 people with view on the crystal sea, veranda and air conditioning.

How to arrive: to reach Elba Island you need to take a ferry from Tuscany (Piombino) to Portoferraio, Cavo or Rio Marina. It only takes 30-40 minutes and I suggest this website for booking since it provides times and prices for different companies: www.traghetti-elbareservation.it/en
