On the golden sandy beach of Lido di Capoliveri (just a short distance from the apartment - approx. 700 m), there are several bars, cafés, pizza- bars, and restaurants where you can take time off from sunbathing and swimming and enjoy a meal of tasty sea-food, genuine lasagne, superb pizza and a bottle of Elba's white wine. The beach also caters for a variety of water-sports: scuba diving, surf, kayak, canoes, sailing. A mini-market at one end of the beach will supply all day-to-day needs (anything from postcards and beach-balls to fresh bread and Parma ham) and also provides a variety of meals to take away (roast chicken, lasagne and various local specialities etc.).
If you feel like some evening entertainment, try taking a stroll in one of the harbour towns where you can enjoy delicious Italian ice-cream while looking at the beautiful yachts moored in the harbour. And if you do decide to come without a car, you can always rely on a taxi to bring you home to a welcoming well-lit patio where you can enjoy a cool evening drink overlooking the glittering lights of Porto Azzurro and Capoliveri in the distance.
