The beaches

From the house there is only a 150 meters walk on smooth cobble stone to the nearest beach, Cala Portavecchia, a small bay by the Adriatic Sea. This is a child-inviting beach facing east, used by the locals. The beach is narrow with fine sand and a couple of hundred meters long. On the foot of the town wall, running on the northern side of the bay, you can sunbathe and dive directly into the sea. Within walking distance there are another three small beaches: Porto Bianco, Porto Rosso and Porto Paradiso.

Cala Portavecchia is our beach
