MOVING AROUND THE ISLAND

The entire island is at your fingertips, whether it be by land or by sea. There are scooter rentals and e-bikes, scheduled buses and collective taxis, boats to take you to the beaches or a tour around the island. There’s an option for your every need.

Distances are minimal in the three small towns on Giglio Island and it is always recommended, indeed sometimes obligatory in the summer pedestrian areas, to move only on foot. By walking around, you’ll be able to fully enjoy the tranquility of these villages.
Disembarkation of private vehicles on the island during the summer is restricted, nevertheless leaving your car in one of the many parking lots before boarding the ferry in Porto Santo Stefano can really be the best choice to experience a hassle-free holiday . Even though there is some paid parking distributed among the three towns on the island, it is quite difficult to find a parking space during the summer. In any case, there are numerous ways of getting around the island without using your own car.

Shared Taxis
Some authorized minivans allow quick and comfortable travel around the island, normally they stop at the port in dedicated spaces, but can also be booked by telephone; fares vary according to the route and the number of passengers.

Boatmen and boat rentals for beaches and coves

To make the most of a beautiful day at the sea on the island’s beaches, you can choose to be accompanied via boat by port boatmen (Barcaioli). It’s the perfect solution for those who love the sea, it only takes a few minutes to land directly on a beach or cove that cannot be reached otherwise. The Barcaioli also offer the opportunity to admire the coasts from the sea with the circumnavigation of the island, stopping in several places for a swim in the transparent waters of the most hidden coves.
