Very nice cozy semi-secret beach with fine white sand and many locals. No bars/restaurants, but fantastic atmosphere!

Our visit to this gorgeous beach was memorable. It was a lovely walk from the car park to the beach through bushland. The signage along the way directing us to the beach was easy to follow and the path easy to walk on. Our 1/2 hour effort was rewarded with the most pristine beach with crystal clear water- I didn't... More

Super beach. Pro and also con is the limited number of visitors. Therefore you have to be early about 10 o clock. Long(1/2 hr) but very nice walk. You will be awarded with a "paradise beach". Make a walk climb to the left off the laguna and you will see turquoise blue water and a beautiful Laguna. Climb the rocks... More

Crystalline sea water, lost in the middle of a reserve, amazing sea surrounded by nature. Deserved everything, the limited parking slot, the 1.5km walk, the worst food camper ever… But the place is amazing!

The location is indeed beautiful but the beach was already far too crowded on an early June afternoon. I wonder what it must be like in the summer! It is a shame as such a lovely cove should be made available only to few people. I understand I am talking nonsense, but one cannot really enjoy such an amazing scenary... More

As local, Ihave been there already few time. Today (Sept 04 2013) we were warned at the entrance gate that the beach and the access road are infested by bee and other flyes called Tafani (search google for pictures and dangers). We decided not to go as the beach is a long way walking to the car park to avoid... More

We were very excited about going to Cala Violina, after hearing so many positive comments from locals. The beach itself is very picturesque, set in a small cove, with lovely views. However, it is incredibly overcrowded in August. After paying 6 Euros to park, we trekked through the woods on a 30 minute hike, carrying beach gear, children and a... More

Rent a dingi and navigate from the Marina to the Cala Violina to spend the day there. Join the beach swimming and enjoy a great picknick there. Discover the Stella di Mare in the Sea while snorckling
