There are heaps of walking and biking tracks that wind all over Giglio Island, taking in the best of its landscape, beaches and history.

It's definitely worth walking around Giglio Island if you can muster the strength.

The island is relatively small and there are clearly marked walking tracks that vary in difficulty and length.

There is no better way to appreciate the flora and fauna of the island than on foot, especially when much of the island's most beautiful flowers and furry critters live in the small hinterlands between Giglio Porto and Giglio Castello where there are no roads.

You're also more likely to find a secluded section of beach if you wander around the coastline on foot.

For more information and maps stop by the tourist office on Via Umberto at Giglio Porto.
