Elba Island

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me about their experience on Elba Island. We are considering going there the beginning of May. Is it crowded by that time already? Are there any sandy beaches you could recommend? Any picturesque towns that are not especially crowded? Favorite places to stay (particularly apartments)? (We're looking for quiet and relaxing for the end of a month-long trip.) Do you need to have a car? Thanks!!!

I just googled "elba tourism" and lots of info came up. Since no one here has replied to you maybe you should google.

I have a similar questions about the Island of Elba that Cindy had back in 2009 and there doesn't seem to be too much info on it. Anyone know anything new to share about going there? Main question would be... are there some beautiful swimming beaches? Are there other interesting things to do if it may be raining?
