“Great beach and view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The place is a must see but bear in mind that it might as well be very very windy. As a matter of fact it was too windy when we were there so we couldn't really enjoy the beach as much given that the sea was a bit rough, wavy and cold. However, the day after we went back to the beach in early morning when it wasnt as windy so we could enjoy doing some yoga & jogging.

“Natural beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Amazing, quite unique natural formation. The surface is not too hot or slippery, easy to walk and lay on. No shadows so be sure to bring enough water and sunscreen. There is a huge parking lot nearby, close to Lido “Scala die Turci” from where you take a stairway down. Can be crowded, but worth it.

“A must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

When in the area make a trip to see this natural beauty. The day seemed overcast. After a misunderstanding with the owner of the beach lido who extorts money to use the toilet even though you spend money at the bar, it is a must see! Please see photos as it will speak for itself.

“Very impressive white cliff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Totally worth a visit even if you do not come to sunbathe or swim. Admission is free. We saw cars parked alongside the road for free. There is also a parking lot, which costs 2 euros per hour (June 2014).
