The coast from Puntone di Scarlino that continues towards the Punta Ala beaches is marked by the coves of the Bandite di Scarlino Nature Reserve. Cala Violina is certainly better known than its nearby sister beaches of Cala Martina and Cala Civette due to its reputation and the peculiar violin-like sound coming from the trodden sand, making it a very popular destination during the summer, often leading to overcrowding of the beach. Cala Violina is easily reached from the road that connects Puntone to Castiglione della Pescaia, where you can leave your car in the large car park (for a charge) and then cross the woodland for two kilometres until you reach the beach. Otherwise you can leave your car at the end of the Puntone marina and then take the panoramic walking/cycle path for two kilometres to Cala Martina, and then another two kilometres to Cala Violina. Don’t forget take everything you need for the day: in these areas and on the beaches there are no facilities such as bars or restaurants.
