The Scarlino area overlooks the sea and stretches from the Alma river to the first houses of Follonica, lying on a coast (9 kms) rich in cliffs and beaches. The hills are covered partly by the Mediterranean scrub and partly by a green meadow scattered with olive trees, vineyards, orchards. These are also old cottages and farms, today all restored, either as real working farm and confortable holiday cottages. The natural environment is still intact, including the famous coves immediately after Portiglioni, up to the Punta Ala port.
Those who wish to discover a sand sounding like a violin, can reach Cala Violina either by foot or by bicycle where unexpected, beyond the green landscape, there is the sea: a blue colour in contrast against the white beaches of Cala Violina and Cala Martina in front of the Isola d'Elba and the Sparviero, From Spring to Autumn this wide and clear sheet of water, is animated by yachts and motor boats, leaving the port of Puntone, that in 1999 has seen the start of the work to trasform it into the tourist part "Etrusca Marina". However Scarlino is also about archeology and history; some Etruscan finds were discovered between Scarlino and Puntone together with the remains of a Roman villa.
