“small but perfectly formed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

we only had a window of opportunity of an hour of sunshine warm enough so the beach wasn't full. It is only small but unlike the med there were good waves to dive & play in. The beach angles sharply so gets deep immediately so not so good for small children. there are rafts to swim to & jump Dive and any other antics teenage boys get up to. you can snorkle and lots of large fish by harbour wall where sea calmer but deep. We went on Monday and all restaurants & icecream places closed so couldn't stay long. Need to bring drinks at least. but good fun had by all.

“Ouch!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Larvotto Beach looks lovely from a distance but there's no sand, only spikey gravel stones to walk around on. It didn't really bother me because there is no bother rinsing it off or shaking out your towel but if you expecting paradise you may be disappointed. The swimming area is small but safe and everywhere is spotlessly clean.

“Petite Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Loved everything but the lack of sand on the beach. Walking on sharp gravel is no fun in bare feet. Swimming area is small but definitely the warmest water I have ever swam in
