They’re rocks, what else is there to say about a photo opportunity? I’m not sure why there is a square hole carved through the middle of the larger of the two attractions, a plaque to explain this would be great idea. Parking is free &...More

It's a good place to take a few photos. Nice view and sometimes there are people jumping to water from the top of the red rocks.

Well as we were doing a road trip around the island we managed to see a lot. This was a rather nice to see but nothing you would miss. Red rocks with many people trying to get a pic. If you go, go early. Free,...More

Although this is viewed either from the sea or a dusty parking lot, the rock formation is beautiful and sometimes there are people who dove off the high points. The view to the sea is also pretty. Somethings amusement parks set up in this lot.

Nice place in Arbatax - the red rocks just by the sea. Interesting stop in our journey, the kids from the town use the rocks as jumping point. We were on the way from Muravera to Cala Gonone so it was close enough to drop...More

This small rock is notable because of its red colour, it merits a visit when in Arbatax but not worth the detour.

We'd targeted Arbatax for some reason, as an overnight break during our journey from the Corsica ferry at Santa Teresa, to Cagliari. Perhaps as it was recommended in one travel guide. In truth, the town was overtly industrial, with a little local charm around the...More
