Beaches of Castiglione della Pescaia
The main beach of Castiglione della Pescaia is easily accessible from downtown on foot, as it spans right in correspondence with its historical centre. It consists of a long stretch of sand somehow divided into two different parts: the part stretching in the direction of Punta Ala is called the Western beach and it is usually very busy as here there are many private beach clubs, restaurants and cafés. Its golden sand, shallow and transparent water make it perfect for families. On the other side of the port of Castiglione, towards Marina di Grosseto, there is the shore opposite the former, that is to say the Eastern beach. The two are strongly similar feature-wise, although this is less widely known and therefore less busy.
Another beautiful beach included in the municipality of Castiglione della Pescaia is located further south in the direction of Marina di Grosseto. This shore, named Marze, is a 6km-long stretch of golden sand, with an endless green expanse in the background, named Pineta del Tombolo. Along this coastal part there are different beach clubs and refreshment kiosks, even though this is a beach that best suits those who love unspoilt nature.
