Monte Argentario - Itay



It is the biggest creek on Mount Argentario. The water is limpid and crystal clear and it is excellent for Snorkeling and for those who love relax and a pleasant swim.

To the back of the beach the suggestive macchia scrub characterized by holm oak and tall trees. Cala Grande is one of the points where the splendid contrast between the blue sky and sea, and the green vegetation unite together in an unique and moving painting.

To the south Cala Grande is marked by the beach of the Colonne where high rocky cliffs are the most northern point of the Mediterranean Sea. Just a little further on there is another splendid creek called Cala Moresca by virtue of the frequentation of Turkish and Barbary coast pirates.


This is one of the most beautiful beaches of Mount Argentario. Crystal clear water and rugged real and genuine nature all around.

The sun is always very intense and strong on the beach of Cala del Gesso, ideal for those who love an impeccable suntan. In front of the creek there is Argentarola (small island characterized by an underwater cave called Grotta della Pumadorine) and to the far right, instead, there is a Spanish tower of XVI century.


Situated just after Cala del Gesso, the Cala del Bove is a coarse cliff-side, genuine without a beach. However the rocks are smooth and it’s possible to stretch out over them to enjoy the splendid panorama which extends in front of the Creek.

The name Cala del Bove id due to the fact that in the past the said “Bovi” or monk seals in the local dialect, frequented this part of the coast.


Back in history it was the favourite hiding place of pirates where they hid their treasures. Just like Cala del Bove there is no beach at Cala Piccola but cliffs and rocks. But this doesn’t reduce its fascination and appeal to tourists. The coral cliff is particularly beautiful. A shoal rises up from 45mt deep to near the surface and makes the creek one of the most appreciated points for those who love immersions.


Situated on the southern coast of Mount Argentario it has been the theatre of many episodes dating back to the Barbary coast pirates. The Mar Morto and the cala are the roughest and wildest of Mount Argentario.

It is characterized for its so-called “pools” or small creeks rich in life forms and wonderful sea beds. The Mar Morto is one of the most exposed areas of the headland, therefore very hot. A little further on we can find Le Cannelle, another area characterized by a beautiful sea bed, as well as a destination for surfers on windy days.

Approaching Porte Ercole, the south-east area of Mount Argentario, is characterized by four wonderful beaches. The Acqua Dolce is one of the residents’ favourite and is glorified by the limpid sea water and real beaches.

The Sbarcatello is an area of the beach right after Acqua Dolce and the peculiarity of a holm situated right in front of the beach. It is a large cliff which was, in the past, armed with a cannon to defend the creek. A little further on there is the so-called Spiaggia Lunga suggestive and desirable to pirates back in time.


Just before Porto Ercole, the Viste is one of the beaches most frequented by tourists and residents.

The area owes its name to the panorama able to offer a truly breathtaking view to tourists who look out to scan the horizon. It’s characterized by pebbles and sand and for its limpid and crystal sea water.


Porto Ercole is another main town of Mount Argentario. It’s a gracious seaside town once inhabited by fisherman. The same fisherman can still be encountered along the marina today.

Inside the walls, at the foot of the Spanish Fortress is the old settlement, whereas today the houses and activities have all moved towards the bay. The sea water of Port Ercole is crystal and to really enjoy the beauty of the area it’s advisable to hire a dingy to admire the coast from a better point of view. The cove which precedes Porto Ercole is the so-called Cala Galera, destination of VIP and famous people.


The beach of Feniglia, near Ansedonia, is the piece of land which links Mount Argentario to the mainland. The main part of the beach is free, but the peculiar characteristic which is much more beautiful than Feniglia is without doubt the Tombolo which extends behind for 7 km and includes the Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve, a protected area which can be crossed on foot or by bike.
