The Coves of Argentario

Bagni di Domiziano

Bagni di Domiziano is a hidden cove, not easily identifiable from the road. The access path is barely visible, half-hidden among the olive trees. Nearby you can find the ruins of an ancient Roman villa, dating back to 36 BC. This beach is also suitable for children because the shore declines softly and the seabed is shallow. It is mainly sand with low cliffs. Posidonia marks the seabed.
How to get there: Drive from Porto Santo Stefano on the road called ‘Strada Statale 440’ and get to the marker Km 10 + 050. Leave the car and take the short path that leads to the beach.
Parking: There are barely a dozen parking places on the side of the road; you cannot park along the highway.
Winds: exposure to North Wind and Northwest Wind.

La Soda

The Soda is a small pebbly beach enclosed by two cliffs and set up mostly by light-colored gravel. Divided by a small pier, on the right there is the free beach, on the left the beach resort. It is particularly loved by fans of diving and spearfishing.
How to get there:direct access at the marker Km 10 + 900 of the road called ‘strada statale 440’ out of Porto Santo Stefano.
Parking: a dozen parking places on the site; you cannot park along the highway.

Pozzarello

The beach ‘Il Pozzarello’ is basically made of little pebbles. The seabed is rocky and sandy; the sea is usually calm and transparent.

La Bionda

It is a small cove, surrounded by rocks, where the sea is usually calm and the water is transparent and clear. There is no establishment or beach service.
How to get there: from Porto Santo Stefano through three former railway tunnels or by Pozzarello along the former railway in the direction of Porto Santo Stefano. Tunnels are closed to traffic in either direction at this time, so if you have trouble walking you are better off from the Pozzarello side which is closer, but going from the other side you have a better chance of finding a parking spot.
Winds: exposure to Northern Wind.
Parking: at the parking before the tunnels entrance, or the few parking spots at Pozzarello.
Special Notes: one of the favourite beaches of the residents.
