The Rocchette beach differs from all the others in Maremma, given the crystal clear sea and sandy bottom that slopes rather gently. Also, it is well equipped with seats and showers and therefore also suitable for children. Rocchette has crystal clear water for a good reason: seawater circulation is facilitated by the presence of a natural channel formed by two rocks on the seafloor.
Between Punta Ala and Castiglione Della Pescaia, the Rocchette beach and its pine forest are truly a spectacle of nature.
The beach they say is the most beautiful in Maremma is that of the Rocchette.
Many disagree because of so many beautiful places in this area everyone finds better what they are looking for.
But it is undeniable that between Punta Ala and Castiglione Della Pescaia, there is a beach that is truly a spectacle of nature. Rocchette beach is very famous in the area, but it is so big that, oddly enough, it is difficult to find it too crowded.
Obviously, summer is the season with the highest turnout. It is possible to arrive by car quite close to the beach but n this period it is recommended to leave the car a little further back to avoid crowding since the road, from the final stretch, is only one carriageway.
In a few steps, you can reach the beach.
The sea is crystal clear, and the sandy bottom that slopes gently makes the Rocchette beach suitable for children. At the north end, towards Punta Ala, you can see rocks from which you can dive, for those who prefer this type of fun.
The cleanliness of the water and its transparency allow long snorkeling excursions to admire the wide variety of fish below the cost. The beach is equipped with several bathrooms with deckchairs and umbrellas, as well as many dining options. Some are also equipped with sports equipment for rent.
But those who want the free beach are easy to find spaces at a safe distance.
Behind the beach, you can enjoy the shade of the centuries-old pine forest. This also makes the Rocchette a place where you can spend a day of fun and well-being. You can shelter from the sun in the middle hours of the day without getting away from the beach.
The beach is named thanks to the Fort of the Rocchette, a 12th-century watchtower overlooking the small promontory on which it is located.
