CALA VIOLINA
SUP EXCURSION

TUSCAN COAST

one of the most beautiful beaches in southern Tuscany

Cala Violina is situated in the Gulf of Follonica, the Bandite di Scarlino Nature Reserve and the Coast of Scarlino Protected Natural Area of Local Interest: it is one of the most beautiful beaches in southern Tuscany. Cala Violina is part of the municipality of Scarlino, in the province of Grosseto. The name comes from a local legend whereby the sand emits a sound when you walk upon it, reminiscent of a violin melody. This is only possible in the winter, because the beach gets quite crowded during the summer, especially at weekends.

Due to the huge influx and to the fact that the cove is not very big, the SUP board is the best way to get to Cala Violina, In fact, there is a limited parking space: once it fills up you can’t access the beach and many people can’t access in most of the high season. The water is shallow near the shore and also there is a shaded picnic area above the cove. Not only the cove itself, but also the views are super: in front of you there’s Elba Island on the Tyrrhenian Sea; on the right there is Punta Francese, which divides Cala Violina from Cala Martina; on the left there’s Punta Le Canne, which divides Cala Violina from Cala Civetta. On this side there is also Punta Ala.
