You have no doubt read our guide (click to view) discovering the best beaches in Tuscany which, although titled beaches near Rome, is all about Tuscan beaches. I know the name might be a little bit misleading but to be honest, the best beaches near Rome are the beaches in Tuscany.
Anyway enough of my waffling, let me share some gorgeous photos of these beaches taken by my friend Alberto Franceschini. Alberto, lucky fellow that he is, lives right in this part of the world and the comments, under each headline, about the different areas and the beaches are his.

Porto Santo Stefano is the gateway to all the best beaches of this coastline and the jumping off point for boat trips out to the island of Giglio. If you'd like to spend some time here then have a look at these hotels.
Doorway to the Maremma Nature Reserve. For a map and hotels click here.
Hills, with stunning views of the islands of Giglio and Elba, flow down into beautiful beaches in this south-western corner of Tuscany. This is my pick when it comes to hotels in Castiglione della Pescaia.
This is a nature park in Alberese near Grosseto, with miles and miles of unspoilt beaches. Many animals are still to be found in this unspoilt wilderness area; there is a good chance of seeing foxes, wild boar, deer and many species of birds. On many of the hiking or horseback trails you'll see the towers that can be viewed in some photos.
If you are planning on visiting Tuscany you might well be based in Florence. If you are then try one of the hotels we recommend. There aren't many because we don't like most of them - see the list of those we do here.
