This beach is at the foot of the promontory of Capo Stella.
The beach is more than 750 metres long and about 25 metres wide, and consists of smooth, small pebbles of different sizes, mostly grey and pinkish, though one or two parts of the beach are sandy.
There is also a crane for hauling small and medium sized boats, that can then be moored in the tiny port on the right hand side of the beach.
The entire beach is free, apart from a small part in the middle, which is under licence of a nearby hotel that runs the bar and the restaurant.
The beautiful, crystal clear water goes from blue to turquoise and it's impossible to resist going in for a swim
There is a small pine grove behind the beach but unfortunately it is privately owned so access is not allowed.
On the beach you can rent sun beds and sun umbrellas, as well as canoes and windsurfs, and there is also a surfing school.
The beach is normally very quiet and rarely crowdedbecause of its being so near the much larger Lacona beach, only a few metres away on the other side of the promontory, much more popular among teenagers and families with small children.
Facing east, the view stretches as far as the uneven coastline of the Calamita peninsula and the tiny Gemini islands, and on your right the promontory of Capo Stella
If you hire a pedalo or a boat it is well worth going for a swim at the tiny beach called Capo Pini on the left, just past Capo Marinaro. It is also perfect for going snorkelling.
It is very easy to go there by car and you can get right down to the beach, just follow the road - it is clearly signposted - on the eastern side of Lacona at the start of the Capo Stella peninsula. Unfortunately there is no proper car park so you will have to leave your car at the side of the road.
