This attractive relatively small beach (perhaps 250m long but 40-50m deep) has the benefit of direct access by public transport, and is almost deserted in the early part of the day. Very gently sloping, ideal for children.

The beach here was very average. It wasn't bad but it also wasn't incredible--just a beach. Not crowded, not empty, not too many shops/restaurants nearby. We visited in October and caught the town during siesta so there wasn't much going on. The whole area is very quaint and scenic but I would hardly call this an essential site in SE... More

Quiet little town, beautiful beach in centre, great little cafe's. the perfect place to recharge your batteries. We stayed 5 days after 2 weeks travelling throughout italy and it was great to relax. Hopefully they never lose their charm and become over touristy. Friendly locals and close by to other towns. Must try caffe creme in cafe. We stayed early... More

There's really very little to do Cava D'Aglia - and that's why we liked it. We tried a few of the beaches in the area but kept coming back to the bay in the centre of the village - the water was so clean there were even fishes by the beach.

Where was everyone? :) The town was quite quiet (though I can imagine peak season to be teaming), it was out of season, so with a meal in a friendly and inexpensive then back to the quiet beach to paddle the swim in a sea that must have been around 22 deg., walk up the clean and sandy beach to...

We spent 4 days in Cava d'Aliga, using it as a base for visiting the baroque cities nearby. The beach seemed really univiting, lots of seaweed and a run down restaurant. We therefore opted for the beaches in Azzize and Sampiero. The place itself doesn't offer much at all in the way of shops or restaurants. Our mainstay was the... More
