CALA VIOLINA

And if we told you that we will make you ride next to a beach in front of a pristine sea would you believe it? What if we told you this beach sounds?

We are talking about Cala Violina which takes its name from a detail that makes it unique: tiny grains of quartz that play a melody at every step.

This beach, enclosed between two promontories, is located within the Scarlino Nature Reserve and can only be reached on foot or by bicycle.

A PERFECT GRAVEL ITINERARY

Thanks to a scrupulous work done in the past months, you will be able to enjoy in total safety a tested itinerary that will lead you to discover the best of this territory.

You will pass by the famous beach of Cala Violina, the picturesque village of Castiglione della Pescaia, the Diaccia Botrona Nature Reserve, the Teatro delle Rocce di Gavorrano and much more.

Obviously, all from the saddle of your gravel bike.
