Features and services
The Polveriera is a beach located about 3 km south from the center of Follonica and to the north by the Puntone di Scarlino.
The gentle descent of the sandy beach and the absolute lack of currents make this landscape, the "sea of children" thanks to the low backdrop, the warm and mild water and the small sandy dunes (the dry ones) that are formed during the hours of Low tide, but also for the shady pine forest behind, equipped for lunch and snacks during the hottest hours of the day.
There are also bathing establishments and refreshments nearby.
This corner of paradise takes its name from an old dusty puddle that today only remains the commercial pier. It is characterized by a cliff about 30 meters from the shore, which seems to be the ancient route of the Roman road "Consolare Aurelia".
In the pine wood you will notice an old cantoniera house, Grandfather House Franco. He collects everything that the sea lays on the coast to turn it into something magical for the children, creating a corner of paradise.
It's just a fairytale house, out there benches, kid-shaped toys and so many cats living in the garden. On the beach there are bars with showers and stalls. A beautiful and fresh pine for riposino, snack or a packed lunch.
