Between Follonica and Piombino, the Art Nouveau Carbonifera building was built in 1870 for the reclamation of the surrounding area and takes its name from the ancient tower that dominates the beach.
Here you can enjoy the fine white sandy beach, clear water, and shallow seabed, the dunes and their typical Mediterranean shrubland fragrance, and the shady pine forest that becomes a centuries-old oak wood.
The Carbonifera beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature and a day at the seaside. Not far from the shore is an artificial reef, parallel to the coast. Many believe that it’s an ancient stretch of the Aurelian Way. Today, it’s the perfect natural habitat for numerous marine species to admire during snorkelling and diving tours.
Bagno Calypso is the beach establishment that takes its name from Jacques Cousteau’s beloved research ship. Here you can enjoy your privacy, a relaxing atmosphere, and special prices for Be Vedetta guests.
