The beach, situated after the Lido, is incredibly beautiful and not crowded at all. It can be easily accessed below the car park, allowing you to explore it at a leisurely pace. From there, you can enjoy a stunning view of the Gulf of Valinco and even spot a Genoese tower. The water is crystal clear, although the ground is covered in somewhat uncomfortable stones, so it's advisable to wear proper footwear when visiting.

We walked past this beach and noticed that the sand is quite rough and the overall atmosphere is not very pleasant. However, just a short distance to the south, the sand becomes finer and the natural surroundings become more stunning.

The beach was incredibly beautiful, and we decided to have lunch there. The water was fantastic! However, there were a significant number of wasps.
