The beach, made of black pebbles, is about 1 kilometer long, and is naturally divided into three distinct parts, separated from each other by rocks: two on the left, past Punta Le Tombe, and one on the right (slightly smaller than the others). The latter, the beach on the right, is also known as the Garden Beach, and is usually frequented by naturists.
The beaches face south-east and are protected by dark rock walls.
The dark color of the stones allows to maintain a warm climate (although it is still a breezy area), consequently the beach is also suitable during the low season when the temperatures drop. The landscape is absolutely unspoiled, there is no beach service, only crystal clear and very clean sea and dark pebbles to relax on.
Totally immersed in nature, it offers a wonderful journey through the colors, landscapes and smells of the Mediterranean scrub that the Island of Elba offers.
Don't be frightened by its name: the beach of Le Tombe (the tombs) owes its name to the nearby discovery of some tombs of Etruscan origin.
How to reach the beach of Le Tombe
The beach of Le Tombe can be reached precisely at km 16 of the provincial road number 25, between the beach of Fetovaia and Pomonte.
Along the road you will find a small parking lot where you can leave your car and then continue on foot along path no. 112, quite difficult, under the sun, which takes you to the beach in about 15 minutes.
Avoid wearing flip-flops, closed and comfortable shoes are recommended.
Although access to the beach is not very practical, along the path, immersed in the Mediterranean scrub, the view of the Island of Pianosa and Corsica will make you forget the effort.
