Stayed literally all day. Take food and drinks with you as there are no facilities. The water is turquoise and safe to swim. Not over crowded.

It is a beautiful beach with a beautiful landscape. There are some stairs to reach the beach, bit it is worth it.

Clean, quiet of the season, breathtaking colour of the sea and sky. One of the most lovely beaches in Europe.

Wonderful beach with golden sand and on a clear day one can see Stromboli. Access is via steep steps down the cliff so not suited for less able people.

The sea is crystal clear, like the photos in the web. I highly recommend to wear beach shoes because there are stones in the sea. However, the beach is a little dirty and there is no bathroom or shower.

Lovely local feel, clean environment, relaxed atmosphere and not too crowded. The vicinity of a beach-style pub a few steps up from the beach was a great asset!
