2006 marked the beginning of this event, which takes place by the sea amongst the various districts of Elba. It was developed around 2 aspects: sport and initiatives for disabled youngsters. There are countless sport and marine activities: swimming and fishing competitions, beach rugby and beach volleyball, regattas, rowing, surfing and windsurfing. History also has its place, with costumed processions and an archery contest. A well as ping pong tournaments, with lunches and dinners for competitors. The traditional swimming competition sees all the villages on Elba taking part, making it a real Swimming Palio for the island.
Sea and sport combine in this not-to-be-missed event, and you can either take part as a spectator or as an active competitor. The event usually happens in June and marks the start of Elba’s long Summer season.
