San Vincenzo is one of the most equipped tourist centers of the Etruscan Coast, able to offer the greatest hotel and non-hotel accommodation in the Val di Cornia.
Thanks to its mild climate, its natural conformation, its centrality within the Tyrrhenian coast, San Vincenzo is a place to come on holiday all year round, not only in summer. Its coastline of clear and very fine sand stretches for 12 kilometers and for large stretches it has behind it a thick Mediterranean scrub that reaches the beach directly.
Free beaches and equipped beaches alternate from the northern border with the Municipality of Castagneto Carducci to the southern one with the promontory of Baratti and Populonia in the Municipality of Piombino. Most of the equipped beaches and beach establishments are located in the urban center, while the longest stretch of free beach (about 8 Km) coincides with the beach of the Rimigliano park in the southern area of the Municipality, a natural park that is part of the Val di Cornia system of parks and which is characterized by an extraordinarily intact Mediterranean maquis, crossed by equipped paths that arrive directly on a very deep and wild beach.
At the center of the village is the tourist port, expanded in recent years, which allows nautical tourism to find an excellent landing point within the Tuscan archipelago. In addition to the sea, San Vincenzo offers the possibility of nature trails linked to the presence of the Rimigliano park and the hilly hamlet of San Carlo, a former mining village that is now very popular due to its naturalistic and scenic location in the Val di Cornia hills. The development of farm activities born in the last 10 years in the countryside has integrated the traditional offer of seaside tourism with that of a relaxing holiday, in contact with nature and the landscape and food and wine values of the territory. The ample supply of sports facilities and equipped natural paths has made in the years of San Vincenzo a place where sports tourism in particular linked to the bicycle has consolidated its presence, offering guests of local facilities ample opportunities to practice a sport during their living room.
Its central location within the Tyrrhenian coast allows those who decide to spend their holidays here to easily and quickly reach the other main tourist destinations in the area, such as the Val di Cornia Parks system, including the park of Rimigliano apart, but which sees in the archaeological park of Baratti and the promontory of Populonia and in the archememing of San Silvetsro real points of excellence on the national scene.
A few kilometers away are the medieval villages of Suvereto, Campiglia Marittima, Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, but also the beaches of the Sterpaia natural park in the Municipality of Piombino or the thermal spring of Caldana in the Municipality of Campiglia Marittima. A little more than an hour's drive away cities like Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa and Florence, the latter two distant 70 and 150 Km respectively. The port of Piombino, the main embarkation point for the Island of Elba , is only 22 Km.
