Montecristo Island

The most difficult of the Islands to reach because of its single inlet for mooring; a white granite shore and then only hills. Those who want to do a trekking excursion here require good training. Once on the Island, a profound sense of isolation and detachment from real life is pervasive.

The Island is in fact uninhabited and has no electric power, vehicles, shops, or people. Only the sounds of nature disrupt the silence of this place – wind, waves, sea birds and goats. Montecristo cannot be visited freely, only by way of guided tours organized by the Tuscan Archipelago National Park.

A maximum of 1,600 visitors are allowed per year. A place where nature is not oppressed by man, or concrete and traffic; a place where nature reigns supreme.
