The Island is surrounded by the warm, sparkling, turquoise-blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. From the highest peak, Monte Capanne, there is a view of the coast of the mainland and the islands of Corsica, Capraia, Pianosa and Montecristo.
With an area of 224 square kilometres, it has a coastline of 147 kilometres, with 14 kilometres of beaches.old church on elba islan
