Punta Ala is a very famous and prestigious sea resort and is located on a small promontory which takes its name from the place.
It is located in the municipality of Castiglione della Pescaia virtually opposite the Island of Elba.
Punta Ala owes its name to General Italo Balbo, who chose it for his residence and that he borrowed the name from the slang of the aviators.
Punta Ala is certainly a tourist destination sought after and this is due to the important tourist facilities (golf, hotel, residence) but also to the beautiful marina which is home to prestigious boats.
The local Punta Ala Yacht Club also organizes many races, some of which are of international importance and is the cradle of Luna Rossa.
Punta Ala provides the visitor with lots of interesting historical and architectural: the Tower Hidalgo, dating back to the sixteenth century and which still dominates the town, Castello di Punta Ala, always the sixteenth century, but built by the Medici, the Tower of Appiani, built on a small island, the small island of Lo Sparviero is located a short distance from the coast.
Also worth a visit the Church of Our Signora della Consolata, a modern church built in 1961 and designed by Walter Di Salvo.
In addition to Walter Di Salvo, other important architects have contributed with their projects to make Punta Ala what it is today, remember among others, Ignazio Gardella, Ludovico Quaroni and Luigi Rafanelli
The beaches of Punta Ala are two: a small one that is in front of Isolotto dello Sparviero which is composed of a lush lawn, a portion of the free beach and a bathing establishment, while the other, very large and long lies beyond the pine forest.
We find many beach resorts that stretch between the Tower Hidalgo and Cala del Barbiere.
