Between the island of Corsica and Italy’s western shore - the shore of Tuscany - the deep blue Ligurian Sea is spotted with a string of gems known as the Tuscan archipelago. The most prominent of these islands is Elba, a delightful destination that combines aspects of the breathtaking Tuscan countryside with the pristine and secluded island culture. Elba holiday homes and Elba villas provide a perfect destination for family vacations as well as romantic weekend getaways, and is commonly cited as a favorite among both international and Italian travelers. Things to do on Elba include a wide range of water sports, land sports, historical sightseeing and pulsing nightlife. Or, for those who wish to simply relax and bask in the Elban sun, endless stretches of white sandy beaches are yours for the taking. Soak in the views from the balcony of your holiday villa Elba, and then hit the beach. Marina di Campo is a wonderful beach in Elba. Not only is it beautiful, but it stretches out for quite a ways, allowing for people to find seclusion away from the crowd – or pitch their parasols, scoop ice into the lime daiquiri and begin some serious people-watching.
For history buffs, a perfect attraction is the Villa de San Marino, where Napoleon summered. For those who view pleasure-filled holidays as more than just a pastime, it’s recommended that you visit this attraction in order to gain some historical perspective on how the masters enjoyed Italy. A more serious look at footprints of the Emperor’s reign over Elba can be found at his old home, Palazzina dei Mulini, which includes a vast collection of amazing artifacts that were owned by Napoleon. Head back to your holiday rental or Elba villa for a short nap, because soon it's time to paint the town red. When the sky flares into breathtaking reds, oranges, purples and, finally, black, and when the beachside resorts light up and the music starts to trickle out of the bars, this is the signal that another night of fun and entertainment has begun on Elba. Porto Azzurro has a recommendable collection of nightclubs and discos to keep the party rolling till the wee hours.
An Elba travel never gets boring. Yachting, fishing, swimming, snorkeling, windsurfing, jet skiing, canoeing and a variety of other water sports in Elba are commonly enjoyed by visitors, while land-based sports such as beach volleyball and tennis at the resorts – and cycling through the lush splendor of the island’s countryside – are all delightful things to do with the family, or in pairs, on Elba.
