Cala Violina is one of the most suggestive places of Maremma, it’s a protected area inside the Natural Reserve Bandite di Scarlino.
Pretty long and wide, this beach strip is famous for its white sand with grains of quartz and crystal clear water. It may look as a tropical beach but is just a few km from the farmhouse Brancatelli.The wonderful panorama is completed by the wild mediterranean vegetation that arrives almost on the sand.
To reach Cala Violina is necessary to walk a short path running along the coast from which you can admire a wonderful panorama on the bay of Follonica, the promontory of Piombino, the Elba Island and the promontory of Punta Ala. The path is easy to walk and bike or to horse riding.
The beach is named Cala Violina because, trampling barefoot its sand, this make a sound of violin very faint but audible in the absence of other noise sources. In high season it can become very crowded so the ideal period to visit it and hear that sound is in spring. But even in the sunny days of winter, Cala Violina can give some pleasant moment.
