Sea lovers will certainly appreciate the Argentario cape. It is almost an island embracing the mainland, where crystal waters merge with historical towns like Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole making it one of the most charming areas of Tuscany, and probably the best of Maremma.
In Porto Ercole and in the nearby Cala Galera it is possible to rent boats for daily trips to small bays that can hardly be accessed by land and to the beautiful islands of Giannutri and Giglio. Ferries from Porto Santo Stefano also lead to the islands.
Orbetello is a suggestive town by the sea connecting the Argentario cape with the mainland together with two strips of land, Giannella and Feniglia (tomboli della Giannella e della Feniglia), where there are extensive equipped beaches. Feniglia is an area protected mostly by a natural park that visitors can only access on foot or by bicycle. The vast pine forest overlooks the uncontaminated sandy beach.
And finally Capalbio, an enchanted village at the borders with Latium, charming visitors with its medieval atmosphere. The artist Niki de Saint Phalle created here the famous Tarot Garden (Giardino dei Tarocchi ).
Active people can make a new experience going out fishing with local fishermen who involve tourists in their daily activities and then sell fish in the local market.
Other modern resorts include Marina di Grosseto, where the quality of summer tourism was recently improved thanks to a new port and Principina Mare, a town in the middle of the Parco dell’Uccellina (Uccellina Park), also known as Parco Naturale della Maremma (Maremma Natural Park) a beautiful pine forest. Finally the wonderful beach of Alberese and the suggestive cliff of Talamone.
