“nice mostly sandy beach”
Review of Spiaggia di Citara

Spiaggia di Citara
Ranked #6 of 27 things to do in Forio
Attraction details
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Im told this is one of the better beaches on Ischia. Not entirely rocks-free (there is some in the water but not sharp), and the water was not crystal clear at the time we visited, but all in all a nice sandy beach, with a large public space, lots of bars and restaurants and even a supermarket (the supermarket though with eyewatering prices). reached also by public transport

beach is small. We went to thermal bath Poseidon. this is nice but expensive.
It could be reached with the Bus, but public transports are not working well, hence Taxi is reccomended.

Nice beach but with very gritty sand (quite painful on the feet). The public areas are very good, particularly the area accessed from behind the minimarket as this seemed to be families rather than youngsters.
the swimming off this beach is very good indeed with large rocks to aim for and dive off. the snorkelling would be good too as there were plenty fish to see. it's very popular.

the only downside is the smoking, but this was a problem we encountered everywhere. about 50% of those using the beach smoked so it's a bit smelly and the sand has fag butts in it.
