LA SPIAGGIA LUNGA
Forte Stella dominates Spiaggia Lunga and thanks to its golden sand and the clear sea is a very sought-after beach.
The beach is free but you have the possibility to rent beach umbrellas and beach chairs.
How to get there: go through the Provincial Road 66 (Via Panoramica) from Porto Ercole up to Km 1 +550. From here, you will find a steep and difficult path up to the beach, reachable in 20 minutes.
Parking: on the Via Panoramica or Porto Ercole.
Winds: exposure to winds from the south and east (Ostro, Libeccio and Levante); the beach is very sheltered from the northwestern summer breezes.
