Parco naturale di Rimigliano

Along the street Via della Principessa that connects San Vincenzo to Piombino, you can find the Rimigliano Costal Park. The wonderful park is characterised by a tree-lined street facing the dunes and the beach.

San Vincenzo

San Vincenzo is the holiday town par excellence and offers a great weather, a central position within the Tyrrhenian coast, with beaches of fine sand kissed by a crystal clear sea of rare beauty.
The area was already populated in the Etruscan era, although the first historical evidence dates back to around 1300, when San Vincenzo became one of the defensive basis of the Pisan Republic, which had the Torre Merlata built right in front of the beach and today it is still well-preserved and better known as Torre Pisana. For years, this fortification situated within the inhabited center of the town was used to safeguard the territory from coastal raids by Saracen pirates.
The real wonder is the sea with a long coastline of fine and clear silica sand that stretches for about ten kilometres with a lunch Mediterranean scrub behind it and a vast and fragrant pine forest full of paths and relaxing areas both in summer and winter.
Most equipped beaches and bathing establishments are located in the urban center, while the longest stretch of free beach coincides with the Rimigliano Nature Park, characterised by an intact Mediterranean scrub crossed by equipped paths that arrive directly on a very deep and wild beach.

In the center of the town you can find the lovely and efficient tourist port, which has been enlarged in recent years and that allows nautical tourism to find an excellent landing point within the Tuscan Archipelago.
Behind the town you can find the limestone quarries of San Carlo on the slops of Monte Calvi, small hilly village immersed in the countryside. The former mining village is today highly appreciated for its naturalistic and scenic location in the hills of the Val di Cornia.
The development of holiday farms (agriturismi) born in recent years has integrated the traditional offer of seaside tourism in welcoming and consolidated accommodation facilities with that of a holiday in touch with nature, where the promotion of landscape and local food and wine values is preferred.
The cuisine focuses on both meat and fish dishes: in particular in San Vincenzo there is a rediscovery of a variety of blue fish, the bonito, to which a praiseworthy event is dedicated.
