Sports and outdoor activities in the Tuscan Maremma
Diving, excursions and many opportunities to discover the area
Among the activities preferred by visitors to the Tuscan Maremma are water sports: the seabed of our territory, with the islands of Giglio and Giannutri, are among the most popular places for diving, scuba diving, diving and snorkeling. Some of the islands, beaches and coves can only be reached by sea. The beautiful seabed shows the whole show of the Mediterranean.
The best known diving spots in the Argentario are:
• II Siluripedio,
• the Cacciarella,
• Cala Grande,
• the Argentarola,
• the Punta del Bove,
• the Scoglio del Corallo,
• the Secca di mezzo canal,
• the islet,
• the Blue Grotto.
Giglio Island offers one of the most fascinating and beloved seabed in all of Italy, made up of openings between the rocks from which you can observe marine animals such as moray eels and lobsters, majestic groupers and anchovy shoals below the surface.
Even the less known Giannutri Island, inserted in the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, offers perfect backdrops for diving enthusiasts, during which it is possible to see dolphins, whales and turtles.
Horseback riding in the Tuscan Maremma
For lovers of outdoor excursions there is nothing better than a horse ride. A unique experience to discover all the beauty of the scenery of the Tuscan Maremma and the most suggestive places of the Orbetello and Argentario lagoons.
In the surroundings of Stella del Mare Camping Village you will find equestrian centers that offer courses and activities suitable for all levels, both for adults and children.
Inside the Maremma Park, about 30 km from the Castiglione della Pescaia Camping Village, it is possible to take various horse trails, from the easiest to the most demanding, to get to know the Park and its most fascinating places in a simple and pleasant way.
Cycle tourism in Castiglione della Pescaia and in Maremma
The bicycle is the perfect way to get in harmony with the nature of the Tuscan Maremma. The network of cycle paths that connect the Maremma, with a great variety of itineraries, reflect the different aspects of the territory, including hills, avenues full of trees, the Mediterranean scrub and the plains that extend towards the sea.
The best known route, the Grand Tour of the Maremma, is a real journey of about 366 km to discover all the corners of the territory: countryside, dirt roads, ancient medieval villages and beaches. A ring itinerary, a little tiring but very suggestive, which crosses the splendid towns of the Sorano tuff and extends up to the Maremma Park.
The cycle path that connects Marina di Grosseto to Castiglione della Pescaia is an asphalted extra-urban cycle path, which crosses part of the municipal area of Grosseto and that of Castiglione.
The track is completely flat and "mixed", that is, accessible also to pedestrians.
