Giglio Campese

Giglio Campese is the place to go for beaches on Giglio Island. Cut off from harsh winds and rough seas, this bay has become the poster child for those seeking sun anywhere in the Maremma.

You can easily reach Giglio Campese by bus. Buses leave Giglio Porto and Giglio Castello every half an hour and the ticket will cost you €2 per trip. Once you’ve finished at the beach, you can relax in the bars and restaurants that surround the water.

Of course, if you want wind, you can have that too! All you need to do is head south to the Baia di Campese, where the water is perfect for sailing or surfing.

Torre di Campese

Built in the 18th century at the behest of Cosimo Medici, this tower was originally separated from the bay and used to guard the island from the frequent pirate attacks.


There are plenty of walking and biking tracks that wind all over the island and take in the best of Giglio Island’s landscape, beaches and history.

Diving and snorkeling

The beauty of Giglio Island is only paralleled by the beauty that surrounds it underwater. Most of the waters around the island can be explored by divers and snorkelers.


Cannelle, Caldane and Arenella are Giglio Island’s most popular beaches. Each offers something different to the island’s many local and visiting beachgoers.
