Cala Violina


Cala Violina takes its name from a detail that makes it unique: little grains of quartz that play a melody at every step. Sound beaches are an ancient phenomenon, already related by Marco Polo. There are just a hundred similar places in the world, and Cala Violina is one of them.

Cala Violina, in the Mediterranean scrub of the Scarlino nature reserve, is a strip of beach facing an uncontaminated sea, enclosed between two promontories. Cala Violina can be reached only on foot or by bike.


The beach of Cala Violina is a natural heritage of a really high value: for an unforgettable experience and in total safety 700 people can access the beach in a day. To book your place in Cala Violina, follow all the instructions that you find on this website: a contribution of 1 euro is required for the booking fee. Children under 12 must have a reservation, their ticket is free. Free ticket and no reservation required for children aged 0 to 12 months.

For organizational reasons, please note that:


Cala Martina and Cala Civette remain free to access and can be reached on foot or by bike through the paths of the Costiere area.


Once in Cala Violina you will find the stewards to welcome you who will give you all the necessary information: remember to respect the distances set by the anti-contagion rules, the rules for the beach and, above all, the nature that surrounds you!
