A very nice beach with a beautiful view on the Scala Dei Turchi! The beach is pretty big and it was crowded (in june at least). There is also some accommodation if needed and the sand is really thin if you like it this way.

Beautiful, impressive. You can climb on this rock sculpted by the sea and bathe in the sun on the top. Touristic, though, there are a lot of visitors. Powerful wind on the top
