Not at all crowded and very clean beach. We enjoyed it but you will need beach shoes as the pebbles are challenging and the steep descent into the sea is not for children. But on the plus side that created lovely jumping waves. Amenities available.

A bit pebbly under foot but long stretching views in both directions-many of the pool bars were still being constructed in the middle of June but those up and running provided a great spot for sundowners! +++

The beach is beautiful and the water very clear, possibility to have lunch at the beach, but to much different music and too loud

This small beach is nice and quiet, the sand is black and there are few rocks the sea is clean, you can take a spot in a private sector or go for the public beach, both very clean.

It is a big quiet wide beach, not too crowdy, not to much private spaces. Half sand, half stones. We spend a really good time there.

Fantastic place to spend the whole day by the sea. It is a public beach with sandy surface and just one small dining spot

I would rather say this beach was terrible, than nice just because it's not yet discovered. There is no such thing as pleasure while sitting in an empty spacious beach, with black sand. The water was really cold in mid of July... The personnel from...More

The beach was almost empty and was respectably clean. Swimming early each morning in the warm water with the sun and the magnificent views of Etna looming close by made the exercise so rewarding and pleasurable, with only a two minute walk back to the...More
