La Secca offers a quiet cove with a restaurant and amenities. The beach is pebbly, but there is plenty of opportunity for swimming and the scenery is spectacular. There is a restaurant that offers cold dishes and panini.

Our hotel had a special deal with La Secca so we had free entry but we would recommend it anyway. During the week it was especially quiet out of high season. At the weekend locals go there quite a bit. It is a beautiful spot well away from the coastal road with a secluded bay and some well-kept hardens. This... More

Very pretty setting and great service. Have a nice romantic dinner there and fairly good food I wouldn't recommend the swordfish tho it was pretty fishy and not fresh. The pasta was very good as were the appetizers. Service also was friendly and prompt. Not a must have but overall a very good

However this is a stony beach in a well sheltered bay. If you visit you should take plastic shoes to get around the beach and in the sea. The paddling is easy and the swimming is good - you can swim toward the mouth of the bay - there is a safety rope at the extreme. The beach umbrellas and... More

We visited with passes from our hotel. The beach was immaculate and great to have the bar and restaurant there too. Such calm water and ideal for someone like me who is not a confident swimmer! Worth a lazy day.

La Secca is a very pretty beach with reasonably good service at the cafe where the food is freshly prepared standard fare. Beware the sun beds are very close together as the beach is small and because it is very safe for children. For us was inclusive sleeping at La Locanda delle Donne Monache hotel

Our hotel recommended this beach which is reached after a few minutes walk from the car park along a path where you see flowers growing everywhere and small limestone and other rocks jutting out from the sea. When you get there you feel you are in heaven. The early bird catches the worm!! The sunbeds are close together. There are... More
