What people are saying
Odd holiday village
Aug 2019
I've been coming here for 25yrs (Italian family ties), and in all that time virtually nothing has changed, in the sense that nothing has improved. The beaches are either private lidos, or free space but all are a mix of large loose rocks and pebbles, and very uncomfortable. They get very hot during the summer heat and you can burn your bare feet. However, when the sea is calm it's great for swimming and it's virtually always clean. The rocks and pebbles make it awkward to go in and out of the water though. There are very few bars, and they have been exactly the same in all the years with no improvements. No idea about how to make cocktails, poor choice of beers, and forget trying to get some good to eat. The main night activity is walking up and down the seafront with groups of friends. The local council do try to put on lively events, live music, foam parties, traditional shows, but these are not well attended and in fact are poorly organised. If you attend an open air disco, for instance, you'll soon realise the DJs are hopeless, and simply rely on playlists on a laptop that are badly mixed and repeated the same for each event. The local shops are pretty much run by crooks, in the sense they happily charge 2, 3, or 4x the normal price for stuff, so you're better off going to a large supermarket in one of the next towns. Finally, there's very little respect for laws or environment, so expect to see roads full of illegally parked cars, vendors and shops with unauthorised activities, and rubbish on the beaches and in the green areas (probably one aspect that has actually been slowly improving though). So if you're coming to stay with family or friends with an established patch, then pehaps fine, but if you're looking for a great beach with fun etc, then don't bother.

The water is second to few in the Mediterranean, turquoise and fresh, gets deep pretty fast. beach with showers (very simple but nice). Close to the castle and bars/cafés and gelatterias. The beach is not to crowded compared to other beaches in Italy.

We were driving along the coast and spotted this location by the beautiful castle that is perched on a rock above the beach. The water here is clear and there are some rock outcrops to give it some character (missing on most of the Ionian). The beach is stones.

There is an upscale restaurant in the castle (3 euro for coperto) but would make a great location for any event.

There are some other seasonal restaurants along the beach but were closed at this time.
