I went twice to Elba and the second time we combinated it with the Cinque Terre there will also come a blog about the Cinque Terre 🙂

You can also combinate Elba with Corsica it’s a few hours with the ferrie from Elba to Corsica!

You’ll find spectaculuar beaches and clear water, there are long sandy beaches as well as many small hidden bays and coves. There is essentially something for everyone 🙂

We stayed at Hotel Biodola in Portoferraio it was amazing ❤

Pets are allowed and the location scores a 9,6 and the hotel a 9!!

This are some photos of the beach by the hotel, we went in may so there were not many tourists 🙂 And there was even wifi on the beach!!

The food in Elba is also really good ( of course it’s Italy 😉 )

The  food is wonderfully fresh, local seafood everywhere you go, with many prepared local dishes with locally grown produce 🙂

You can also hike at Elba with amazing views there are countless trails that cross the entire island ❤

Here are some photos during the hike 🙂
