Elba Island Vacation

By: Robert

If you are on the lookout for a beach holiday or an island vacation, then the island of Elba in the Mediterranean is one of those places that you should definitely look into. One of the seven islands in the Tuscan archipelago off the coast of Italy, Elba is a paradise for beach and island lovers. The island boasts of more than 50 glorious beaches and you can take your pick from rocky cliffs to fine white sand. You can visit the island almost throughout the year so if you want to spend your holiday on an island, then you can just pack your bags and come to Elba.

Apart from its beautiful and varied beaches, this island which is the third largest in Italy has numerous oak woods dotting the landscape. You can go hiking in the woods or trekking on mountain tracks if you want to do something else apart from lazing on the beach all day. Cycling in the woods and around is another great option that you can choose for spending more time in Mother Nature's bosom.

Or else you can always retire to its sun soaked beaches with crystal clear water and indulge in your favorite water sports or sail around leisurely. The island of Elba is a nature lover's paradise and the preservation carried out by an environment friendly government and population can be easily perceived in every nook and corner of this island.

For those who are interested in visiting historical places, the island has more than enough attractions in the forms of fortresses, ruins, palaces, villas and historical museums. If you are among those people who equate a beach and island holiday with clubbing and pub-bing, then you will not be disappointed at Elba, since the island has a rich and thriving night club culture vibrant enough to satisfy the most social of animals. While some night clubs will welcome you in whatever state you are, most of them will require you to be properly dressed so do not forget to pack your party dresses and shoes when you go on this trip.

Accommodation is aplenty in Elba and you can take your pick ranging from high end hotels to simple bed and breakfasts. However, it is a wise idea to book in advance before coming here, especially if you are coming during the peak season of May to September, since this is the time when accommodation is not only costlier, it is also tough to manage of you have not booked before. However, this is the best season to visit Elba and if possible, you should always book your trip sometime during the summer months, because this is the time when the weather is the best and the amount of things to do the highest. This is the period when night life and cultural entertainment is at its max and the whole atmosphere is festive and holiday like.
