Despite taking many seaside holidays, I'm not really a beach person, but this is stunning and little known. It is a very small and narrow beach that is reached by a steep set of stairs from about halfway up Monte Paraiso. It is very secluded...More

From the town square you have to walk up the side road up the hill. Once at the top I found a quite beach. It's worth the walk. But there are lots of steps. May be why few people visit here. Will go again

This is a lovely stretch of beach. As it was December time it was deserted. But it was quiet and a lovely place to relax.

This is a great small beach. In order to get to it you have to walk down lots of steps. There is no beach at high tide so my advice would to check the tides to avoid disappointment. Very clear water good for scuba diving.

Saw this on my visit to the restaurant situated at the top of the cliff. There is a long stairway going down the cliff edge to the beach. Every time we've passed it, there has only been a few people on there. I assume this...More
