The sandy beach, 200 meters long, is well equipped and managed by the "Consorzio Capo Sant'Andrea". The ground, sandy and shallow, allows children to play without problems.
On the right side of the beach, a path, carved in the rocks, leads to the smaller Cotoncello beach, nearly a small natural swimmingpool with shallow water, ideal for those with small kids. The surrounding rocks offer numerous possibilities to settle down and sun bath.
On the left side, an easy trail, in the middle of the rocks and with small wooden bridges, leads to the Sant'Andrea cliffs, where the contrast of the spectacular rock formations and the deep green water is absolutely magic. The cliffs are granit stone formations, disapearing softly in the cristal clear sea. Our granite and quartz reefs are unique in their kind for their geological importance and their incredible beauty
