Along the Costa d'Argento, in Talamone, you'll find the Bagno delle Donne, not a beach but a small strip of gravel, about a kilometer long, opening up to an incredible turquoise sea cove.
The Bagno delle Donne, at the end of a staircase winding through a cove of rocks, captivates with its natural beauty and relaxing atmosphere. It's a paradise for sea and nature enthusiasts. Fully equipped, this beach welcomes visitors of all ages with cabins, umbrellas, sunbeds, a light lunch bistro bar, and showers directly connected to the sewage system. This is one of the details that highlights the environmental awareness and commitment to preserving the sea.
This is a highly frequented beach in summer; for those who prefer tranquility, visiting during the shoulder and off-season months allows you to fully appreciate its virtues.
The crystal-clear waters reveal an enchanting underwater spectacle. With rocky seabeds and numerous caves, they host a variety of marine species. Colorful fish, octopuses, crabs, coral formations, and sponges create a vibrant and lively picture of life. For snorkeling and diving enthusiasts, in addition to the wonderful natural elements, "La Casa dei Pesci" is not to be missed—an ecological and aesthetic project aimed at safeguarding the seabed from bottom trawling through the placement of Carrara marble sculptures on the seabed. In front of the Bagno delle Donne, there are 19 sculptures, visible even with just a mask.
In conclusion, the Bagno delle Donne is a place where natural beauty and conservation blend. To fully enjoy this marine wonder, it's recommended to wear reef shoes. And finally, a curiosity: this area owes its name to a custom of the past—until the 1950s, men and women were separated on the beaches, and this beach was reserved for women. Next to it, separated by rocks, was the men's beach, and the stretch of sea between the two became a secret place of exchanged glances.
