Concierge.com's insider take:
With its gray sand and not exactly limpid sea, the beach resort of Capalbio, south of Monte Argentario, may not look like much to those with Caribbean standards, but for Rome's left-of-center politicos, journalists, architects, and film and TV types it's a popular summer nesting ground. Hangout of choice is the "Last Resort," a chic shack that stands on the very last scrap of Tuscan beach before you hit the border with Lazio. You can rent a couple of sunloungers under an ombrellone for the day (though from mid-July through to the end of August, you'll need to book ahead), play a game of bar football, or just come for a swim, followed by a light lunch that might take in panzanella (Tuscan bread salad) or calamari with potatoes. They're open daily from late May until the end of September, and also on Saturday evenings, when music and lights create a chill-out Balinese vibe.
