Giglio island

Ultimate guide (October 2018)
Giglio is a small island in the province of Orbetello, Tuscany. There are several sandy beaches, but most of the coast is rocky with perfectly clear water and good snorkeling. For some time the local attraction was the ship of Costa Concordia, thrown near the coast after a famous disaster. However, the ship was taken for repair in 2014, and as for now, nothing reminds of that incident. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
