Wonderful Natural rocks made by the Sea in a very private seaside carved out in the rocks reachable only walking. Certainly to see but the only not really good thing is all the garbage on the seabed that could mess up your snorkeling time.

The place is somewhat hidden and reachable by a short and nice hike. Since it is not too easy to find, you'll be most likely (almost) alone there. A stunning and beautiful place to be. If you are around, you have to go there!

The hike up and down to the cave is not easy, but definitely worth it. It's mesmerizing. At the end of July, it was crowded, but still the uniqueness and beauty of the place overrides everything. Wear good shoes. There were many rocks on which...More

This place is absolutely gorgeous. We had a hard time finding the location because GPS brings you to an overlook. Just go to San Nicola Arcella and follow signs for Bagni Marinelli where you will find a strip of Lidos. You will see at the...More

I really love this place. It's wonderful and there is a magical atmosphere: something special and indescribable. However, it's just a bit complicated to arrive. You can park your car in a modest parking near "Lido Marinella". But the real difficulty is to arrive to...More

You need to do some walking and climbing some stairs for about 20 minutes or so but it is all worthy (you can also get there by boat or swimming). I recommend you to visit this in July at sunset.

The place is really nice, but you will never find it post-card like in August. Unfortunatelly, flocks of shrieking tourists come there either by foot or by tourist boats and spoil all the magic scenery. I recommend visiting in low season to enjoy it fully.
