Around noon don't worry if it's too hot! You could buy an ice-cream by a boat that comes to Capo Bianco beach. I think is a smart solution to arrive by the sea, because is very hard to walk along the rocky beach, believe me!!
Well most locals live in buildings such a this one. Old, low,and small houses with painted windows, nice roofs and a lot of chimneys. The yards in fron of them are very small. They are meant for parents to work and kids to play outside.
I think that this thing happens for every trip from Portoferraio to Piombino Porto! While you are coming back home, some sea-gulls follow the hot air of the chimney of the boat. The hot air helps them to fly and they also have the change to be feated by people on the upper deck.
During our trip we saw three sea-gulls and we tried to feat them. It was very funny to see them flying and jump into the sea for eating our food.
