The beach gets busy but do it like an Italian and get stuck in, they just plonk themselves where they like and after a while so did we. The beach is clean and safe for small kids with little current and gradual sandy slope.

This beautiful beach is sheltered and has the clearest of water - ideal for snorkelling. Busier than Porto Selvaggion but delightful nevertheless.

Great place in the small town. Water clear and warm. Lots of people during the weekend but you can find a place or rent a sunbed.

Lovely little beach which is kept spotlessly clean. You can hire sun beds and parasols and there is a beach bar which provides drinks and snacks. The sea in crystal clear - really beautiful!!

Cosy small beach. Beautiful clean sea with bar on the beach. You can choose to tend a deckchair and umbrella or just lay on the beach. The water are shallow and the beach is sandy. Good for kids.
