Campo nell'ElbaOne of the most renowned tourist centers on the islands is Marina di Campo (in the municipality of Campo nell''Elba), prized for the wide fine sand beaches, the fertile flat land that arrives at the shores of the gulf, the mountains in the backdrop, and the well-equipped hotels and tourist facilities that offer al types of aquatic sport. From this seaside location, it is possible to reach some of the most beautiful beaches on Elba. It is the perfect place to stay for those seeking an active party scene and nightlife. It is almost like a piece of the Adriatic Riviera has been transported to the heart of the Tuscan Archipelago, but manages to retain the appearance of an old fishing village. The low vegetation in the area has left ample space for cultivation and here one can find the majority of the Elban vineyards that produce in prevalence the white wine that goes so well with the Mediterranean cuisine so rich seafood. When in the area, a visit to the Church Of San Mamiliano should be on the schedule. Located on the road headed for Procchio, it houses a relic of Saint Mamiliano who died in Montecristo in 460 A.D.
