Punta Ala is a sophisticated and renowned touristic resort, on a narrow strip of land surrounded on three sides by the sea and covered by a thick pines grove. Nearby is a good golf course. The coastline is a harbour for many boats and yachts, is perfect for sailing, and frequently hosts prestigious boat races. In short, it is a very quiet and high-class place.
It is an exclusive and perfect resort for enjoying both the sea and the countryside, and for sea-sports or relaxing.
Just a few kms away, high on a promontory on the Maremma coastline, rises Castiglione della Pescaia, a beautiful, typical maritime “borgo” of this area. It boasts both wild and protected free beaches, some of them rugged and rocky, and some comfortably sandy. They will meet the expectations of any tourist. For those who are interested in sports, it is also possible to take long walks, either by foot or on horse, among the pinewoods and the typical Mediterranean groves around. In Castiglione one can enjoy an intense social and cultural life too, with various shows, concerts and events. The high part of the “borgo” is dominated by a splendid Castle from Aragon times, and by well-preserved walls and towers that add to the breath-taking beauty of the panorama.
