Spent a week in Torre dell'Orso, the sea is beautiful, with clear waters and white sand, warm water, but the beach is extremely overcrowded and the sand is dirty. It must be a great spot off season, but I would not recommend it in August.

The sand and water is amazing. It's extremely crowded. It's perfect for kids. Seems better in early mornings and late afternoons.

Lovely sandy beach in this bay, the water is pretty shallow and the sea a beautiful emerald green. There are sand dunes and cliffs and paths around for walks.
