How can you spend
your stay in Argentario?
From Porto S. Stefano it is possible to reach the Islands of Giglio and Giannutri. Half moon shaped, Giannutri is a very little island (resident population of 6 people) considered a jewel of the Mediterranean Sea for its wild beauty. The Island of Giglio is bigger and more populated with its two villages, Giglio Porto and Giglio Castello and its beautiful landscapes and beaches.
Both islands can be easily reached by ferries that in summer run regularly from Porto S. Stefano. There is also a private local shipping company that organizes short daily cruises to both islands (Porto S. Stefano, departure at 9.45 am, return at 7 pm). Lunch (fresh fish from the local fishing boats) is also served on board.
For those who like scuba diving, both in Porto S. Stefano and Porto Ercole there are several diving companies that provide professional assistance and organize scuba-cruises around Argentario and the Islands . The immersion beneath Punta dell’Avvoltore is well known among the scuba-divers. It is considered one of the ten best diving spots in Italy, where it is possible to see red coral and several fish species.
