A paradise for seafood lovers and families. Shallow crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches and the perfect weather for a summer holiday.

Nothing works in Torre Lapillo. Everyone is trying to cheat you money. Rules are not obeyed on, you can park however and wherever you like. The beach is overcrowded and not as clean as pictures around show.
