If you have time, take 20 minutes to drive -carefully- there. The environment is beautiful with bushes, rocks and a pleasant Mediterranean atmosphere. The beaches are rocky and quite picturesque: an unforgettable experience.

Lovely sandy beach with beautiful clear water. Easily reached by car or bus from Santa Teresa. Take a walk around the lighthouse where there is a small cove where you can swim.

Spent an hour or so here, interesting rock formations and good views. Wear sturdy shoes! Lovely clear green seas. Interesting to see the different rock types side by side, would like to know how it formed.

I have been shocked by first look at this place, The hills spreaded of huge and stange shaped rocks, the sea paratically cut in two by a stretch road . It is impossible to describe the beauty of this breathtaking place if you do not see it in real . Quite far out from normal touristic places ( unless you... More

Beautiful location to take a stroll and enjoy spectacular views of the surroundings, including alien-like rock formations and a gorge down to the sea.

Simply breathtaking and stunning and well worth a drive there. Go prepared with good footwear to climb the rocks and a camera. The scene looks like something out of a Jurassic park film but all natural.

There are few beautiful small beaches at this peninsula, and they are very beautiful. Worth seeing and visiting !!! Coming to some of them is bit tricky so bring food and drinks if you think you might need them (climbing up to reach the road again needs some effort). Also we didn't found any shops at the peninsula only one... More

Simply put this place is amazing and not to be missed. You need comfortable shoes, no flip flops. There is a fair amount of hiking you can do on the paths and amongst the rocks. We spent a couple of hours here but you can do as little as 20min for a very quick photo stop or spend much longer,... More

Water the colour of emeralds weather fantastic. Some of the beaches in quirky corners could be cleaner. Humanity depresses me sometimes But we had the large luck to be staying with a local so had the most fabulous afternoon picnic in a wonderful corner.
