I went to this Private beach which belongs to the Grand Hotel Imperiale at the end of September, during the last few days of the season. The Minerva Beach was so relaxing. The staff was very kind and attentive. The beach club was supervised meaning that when the street sellers came too close to sell their counterfeit bags, a member of staff would come closer to us, which made the hassles leave. We basked in the sun feeling very pleased with the beach club, the aperols and the weather! Ideal for friends and couples!
