Preferable to nearby Giudaloca for its sandy shore. Plenty of space for people who don't want to use the ombrelloni and lettini. As there was a bit of a swell the day we were here, there were actual waves to do a bit of body...More

But in general you have to pay a few euros to enjoy the sand. Someone told me there are some free pieces of beach but I didn't arrive there. Every lido has their own price and most of the beach is divided into lido's plots.

The beach is located very close to the train station and about 1km from the town. It's a very wide and long beach, lovely clear water. It's often windy here with waves so check the weather!
