The beach of Cala Violina, one of the most beautiful and evocative in Maremma and the whole of Tuscany, is located in the Natural Reserve of Bandite di Scarlino, halfway between Punta Ala and Follonica. It is just over 20 kilometers from Salvapiano Holiday Ranch and is worth visiting to admire the transparent sea and its very fine white sand, made up of tiny quartz grains.

Cala Violina: How to Get There

It is undoubtedly fascinating in the summer, but it is during the low season that walking on the beach finally clarifies the phenomenon behind its name. If there are no other sources of sound, in fact, while walking on the sand, you can hear a sound, similar to that released by the strings of a violin.

How to get to Cala Violina beach? Starting from Salvapiano Holiday Ranch, you need to reach Follonica and then take the coastal road SP158 delle Collacchie. After skirting the marina of Puntone di Scarlino, you will pass the canal and start a short climb that after 3 km will lead you to the junction for Cala Violina and its parking area.

If you love trekking and are not daunted by somewhat challenging hikes, there are many well-marked trails in the area, rich in truly spectacular panoramic points. Ask our staff for information: you will get the most appropriate advice to choose the itinerary that suits your abilities and needs.
