My best place
Sep. 2020
Famous all over the world, this small beach is truly a pearl. Crystal clear water and a sunset where the sun's rays enter the door. The initial journey (about 15 min) does not weigh on you when you find this show in front of you.

Impressive natural arch
Sep. 2018 • Couples
Wonderful Natural rocks made by the Sea in a very private seaside carved out in the rocks reachable only walking.

Certainly to see but the only not really good thing is all the garbage on the seabed that could mess up your snorkeling time.

Outstanding lovely and lonely place
May 2018
The place is somewhat hidden and reachable by a short and nice hike. Since it is not too easy to find, you'll be most likely (almost) alone there. A stunning and beautiful place to be. If you are around, you have to go there!

One of a kind experience

The hike up and down to the cave is not easy, but definitely worth it. It's mesmerizing. At the end of July, it was crowded, but still the uniqueness and beauty of the place overrides everything. Wear good shoes. There were many rocks on which we could sit, so we didn't need a beach mat.

Paradise! Not easy to find at first
Aug. 2018
This place is absolutely gorgeous. We had a hard time finding the location because GPS brings you to an overlook. Just go to San Nicola Arcella and follow signs for Bagni Marinelli where you will find a strip of Lidos. You will see at the end of this lido area, there are stairs to climb the rocky Arco Magno, after you reach the top you can then climb down into the clear blue waters of the arch. It's also possible to swim into the grotto or even take a paddle boat over.

Worth the trip

Must do!,,,
If you visit SAN Nichola Arcella take a trip to Acro Magno. We walked across from the beach on the Lido resort side. It took us 25 minutes to get there but only 15 minutes to walk back. We went swimming and it was deserted with only one family early in the morning in mid June. No shops bring water and good pear of shoes. The walk in 2 areas has no ledge and some boulders and loose rock yet I found it manageable and doable. I’m afraid of heights and did it without any challenges. Both my husband and I are in our 50’s and would do it again.

Breathtaking, whole thing to ourselves

1) Bring hiking shoes ( you'll have to hike on and over boulders
2) park on the southern part of the beach
3) Trail starts were the stairs begin.
4) Bring your camera, it is beautiful
5) no fees accept if you have to pay for parking

Paradise

I really love this place. It's wonderful and there is a magical atmosphere: something special and indescribable. However, it's just a bit complicated to arrive. You can park your car in a modest parking near "Lido Marinella". But the real difficulty is to arrive to "Arco Magno". A walk for the most enterprising.
