The beach called Punta Nera really means two tiny beaches set like jewels in rocky, lush green cliffs. One is only 20 metres long, the other only 40, and both are 5 metres wide at the most, and consist of fine shingle mixed with sand.
They are sheltered by a promontory on either side: the slightly wider one on the left separates them from Buzzancone beach while the one on the right. Punta Nera, gives its name to the area.
Thanks to the pristine and rugged environment around them, plus the fact that access there isn't very easy, they are both beautiful and very quiet.
Take the grit road from Straccoligno beach and head for the "Costa dei Gabbiani" tourist resort then follow the signs for Calanova beach.
Go under the barrier that tells you you have reached the private property of the tourist resort (you may go by car but only if you are staying at the resort, otherwise you have to go either on foot or by bike). About 1,6 kilometres farther on take the path down that turns off the main road - it's a beautiful walk through lush Mediterranean bush right down to the beach but it.s not very easy,
