All looked lovely, but really not for small kids. Sharp rocks, uneven underwater surfaces, sea urchins and completely over-crowded beach. There's plenty of other more chilled out places to hang out.

Great little beach off the beaten track. The arch area is very busy but if you walk about 400m away from it there are great little coves that are great for sunbathing, swimming and snorkeling

This place is just amazing to visit and spend a few hours lazing in the warm water. We cut down the path before the Arco to watch people diving off into the deep water below. The beach was packed, and there is only a rim...More

A beautiful beach shining under the hot sun, the wind blowing, shaping the white stone into misterious ancient figures. This is one of the most representative places in Sardinia, far away from the glass prison of Costa Smeralda.

Nice little town with an good icecream, very nice acces to the beach, the arco is spectacular and safe for jumps.

Amazing setting! Tiny and therefore busy, and lots of steps to reach it, but once you have claimed your patch and staked your ombrellone, you get a great view of daredevil stunts as people leap and dive off the arch opposite. It's not rough water...More

If you have teenagers to entertain, just go there. They can swim, and most especially jump from any height they like. Water is blue blue blue and deep. The arch with double sunset is just beyond imagination.

If you find yourself close to this beautiful beach do not hesitate and spend here a couple of hours. You can even jump from the naturally shaped arch if you are brave enough!
