“one of the most gorgeous beaches anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I would have preferred fewer boats in a flow of traffic but that's how gorgeousness goes; sometimes it has to be shared!

“Best beach ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

This is definitely my all time favourite beach! Got on a boat from Cala Gonone, the sand is amazing and water lovely. just make sure you get there morning-ish as the sun hides behind the rocks in the afternoon (approx 4pm in Sept) and the beach is in the shade. It's probably best to hire a boat or enquire at a hotel (i had my trip arranged via Costa Dorada Hotel for 40euros incl some packed lunch and there were only 6 of us on the boat + you'd stop at a cove or two for a swim.. I'd avoid the multi-persons excursions as you're limited to their departure times and there will be lots of people getting off the boat with you, hence less space for you on the beach! ;)

seriously nice place.. ideal for a photo shoot too! :)

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Absolutely stunning beach! I went snorkeling around some big rocks on the beach and actually saw a squid!! Exotic.
I'll call this place "Europe's Caribbean"
