Great beach, not too crowded. Parking service available close by for only 5 euro-all day. The 10-15 hike to access to the beach is very steep but worth it for the beautiful panorama.

This beach is just fabulous! Wear shoes fit for trekking, flipflops, high heels or slippery soles not advisable. It's quite a steep descent - and climb back up - but worth it. Our activity watch said approximately 140 meter climb while walking 500 meters. Several...More

Landscape is incredible and nature is the main character. Best place to chill and relax alone or with friends/ family , be ready to face some jellyfish during your serious swim. No big deal, but this is due to a great clean and clear water....More

It is steep, and sometimes a bit slippery, so put on good shoes as only the locals go out here on their bare feet. Remember to keep some water for the walk back up. But once you've made it, the beautiful Adriatic is waiting to...More

Nice beach, the hardest to reach in all the Mount Conero area. Very nice and quiet. A small restaurant with a good seafood menu is the only building you can see in the area.

The bay and the beach are amazing! You can get there through a very steep walk in the middle of the typical Mediterranean vegetation (be careful not to come back when the sun is still too high: it would be to hot! ) that make...More
