About Spiaggia dell’Elefante

Travel 400 meters west from Spiaggia La Celvia and you will discover Spiaggia dell’Elefante (Elephant Beach). This is one of the smaller and most secluded coves in the vicinity of Cala di Volpe. Spiaggia dell’Elefante has a length of only 100 meters, and is intersected by several rocky patches and pieces of residential gardens that reach all the way to the sea. Only a few parts of this beach are actually sandy, but these parts are very secluded. All parts can be reached by carefully strolling through the rocky and shallow waters.

Spiaggia dell’Elefante mostly faces west, and offers magnificent views of the mountainous coastal area near Spiaggia Li Itriceddi, situated 700 meters across the Cala di Volpe Bay. Don’t be surprised to see the occasional yacht passing by in summer. Note that this little cove has no facilities, but it is the perfect beach to experience pure nature, relaxation and stunning views! The best times to visit are in the early morning when the colors are absolutely gorgeous, and in the late afternoon after 5 PM to admire the sunset. You won’t regret it! If you plan to visit this beach by car, it’s best to park your car at the parking area of Spiaggia Capriccioli. From there, it will be a one kilometer walk to Spiaggia dell’Elefante.
