This beach is beautiful but the undertow was too strong for a family day at the beach. If we had more time we would have returned for a sunset drink and evening appetizer.

you do not mind rocks. I loved this spot. The local bus stops here and costs only two euro from Santa Marina. A steep walk down to the beach. Where you’ll find a covered bar that serves salads and sandwiches and ice cream. At the...More

The beach is rocky but very scenic. The water was beautiful and nice to swim in, although certainly helped by swim shoes. Most people seem to be there for the day, renting large blow up mattresses (2 plus umbrella for €10). Cafe served very reasonable...More

Crystal clear water, sun and a breeze. Just awesome to spend the afternoon! Reachable by the stairs and little streets of Malfa.

This beach is beautiful! It is incredibly dramatic looking with the rock formations in the sea. They rent out inflatable loungers so you can relax on the rocky shore, though we just sat on the rocks. The current was a bit strong for our liking,...More

Spiaggia dello Scario is close to Malfa, a long walk down a winding walkway/stairway. It is a beautiful, enticing place. I would not call it a beach, though. It is a rocky shore. The rocks are smooth and well worn by the water, but they...More

The view from the top of the cliff is beautiful, and as you descend it gets even better. It's tricky to enter the water without sea shoes, as the beach is covered in large boulders and smooth rocks. You can hire umbrellas, blow up mattresses...More
