The island of Giannutri is also accessible by taxi boat on request and with the mini-cruises that depart from Argentario and the Island of Giglio without regular basis. There is also a heliport on the island (in Ischiaiola). The small airport in the northern part of Giannutri is not operational because it does not meet the minimum security conditions.

Limitations on the disembarkation of private vehicles: In the period between 4 and 24 August 2018 it is forbidden to land on Giglio Island motor vehicles with an Italian license plate. The prohibition does not apply to residents of the Giglio Island and to vehicle owners with an Italian license plate who will spend at least 5 days on the island (4 days in the case of caravans or motorhomes staying in the only Giglio campsite): in these cases the owner must keep in his / her vehicle a self-declaration showing the data of the registrant (name, address, fiscal code), the vehicle data (plate and owner) and the data relating to the stay (host name, location, period of the stay). From 30 March to 30 September the disembarkation and circulation on the Giglio Island of unauthorized buses are also prohibited. The administrative penalty for violators of these bans is between € 413 and € 1658.


The Giglio Island can also be reached by taxi boat on request and with the mini-cruises departing from the Argentario and from other locations on the coast without regular intervals. On the island there is also a heliport (in Arenella at Giglio Porto).


Since it is not possible to transport your car or other motor vehicle to Giannutri without authorization, for those visiting or staying on the island it is customary to park the car, the camper or the motorbike in Porto Santo Stefano not far from the dock of the ferry to Giannutri. Also the occasional visitors to the Giglio Island have the same need in August because of the prohibition of disembarking vehicles with Italian license plates on the island (with the exception of those who transport their vehicle to Giglio to stay at least 5 days or 4 in the case of caravans). The parking fees established by the Municipality for the cars parked in the blue stripes increase in relation to the duration of the parking (€ 0.50 the first hour, € 1 the second, € 2.50 the third and those to follow): a bit prohibitive for those who spend a night or more in Giannutri. More convenient then to take advantage of the long-term parking areas of Porto Santo Stefano, all conveniently accessible from the ferry pier to Giglio and Giannutri:
