“Relaxing, sunbathing and swimming at beginning of May”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Spending your days here is like to re-generate yourself. Calm and relaxed beach, at least at the beginning of May, with few tourist around. The water, in this period, is a little bit cold, but it reinvigorates you and after few days you cannot stay without diving in the splendid colorful water.
We stay at Lido Delfino and staff was really gentle and friendly.

“Not great and the beaches are rocky”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Not a great place to stay, a bit far from the city, no good restaurants and not much to do in the evening; the public beach is small and rocky

“Crowded, expensive, lots of vendors”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

It only looks nice from afar, but it is pebbly, crowded, sun loungers are very expensive (La Pigna charges EUR 8 for a lounger with an umbrella), some parts are reserved for the gueasts of nearby hotels, so you cannot even rent a lounger there. Lots of boats who offer trips, so the water is not very clean there and the air smells of petrol from the boathouses. But the absolutely worst thing is the vendors. On a Sunday afternoon during a 3 hour stay there I counted 18 different vendors + 3 massage ladies. Practically every 10 minutes you have someone standing next to you and begging to buy whatever they are selling.

“Not worth the trouble”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Grubby pebbly beach. Very rough sea to get in and out of, too many peddlers asking for massage, etc or touting shoddy rubbish. If that is a beach club which you have to pay for forget it.
