Sport & Activity activities

Try our nine-hole golf course, play tennis in one of our red sand tennis courts, discover the Biodola sea bottoms, or simply enjoy a sunset walk in our sea view garden, among the hibiscus flowers and the majestic trees.
Whatever your favourite activities are, here at the Hotel Hermitage all you need to do is to choose.

Tennis courts

Arrange a tennis match in one of our 9 tennis courts, 8 red sand ones and 1 synthetic. Or take some lessons with our FIT teacher and you will be an experienced tennis player by the time you leave the hotel at the end of the summer.


The Hermitage Golf Club offers a 9 hole golf course which is located at the back of the hotel. It is immersed in the scented Island of Elba vegetation and stands out due to its unique view of the gulf of Biodola, Scaglieri and the Island of Capraia.

Nordic Walking

For those who love walking, take the “Percorso della Salute”, an authentic and professional path and running track which is located inside the hotel’s private park. The path is 3.5 km long with a 15 mt overall gradient. It is marked with specific signposts and it stretches partly through the Mediterranean Maquis and partly along the beach. During your walk you will have the chance to enjoy stunning views and also to pass through a World War II bunker.

Pilates classes, acquagym and yoga

A Stott Pilates certified instructor can organize private lessons for one, two or a small group of six people. These are ideal for those who have a sore back, treating an injury or just wish to workout in private. Get in shape by training with professional equipment including two deluxe reformers (a machine including a reformer, cadillac and mat).

Sailing and windsurf school

If you feel like trying something a little more challenging and physically and mentally stimulating, take our customized sailing or windsurfing lessons, individually or with your children. Mastering these activities will show everyone you’ve earned your ‘sealegs.’
