Rugges Cliffs, fine sandy beaches and a turquoise sea – Italy is one of the best travel destinations in Europe for an extensive beach holiday. But which beach is actually the most beautiful? We are showing you the hidden gems.
La Cinta Beach in Sardinia
A three-kilometre-long, white sandy beach awaits sun-seeking bathers on Sardinia. The beach, which is one of the longest on the island, slopes gently into the turquoise, crystal-clear sea and is therefore a popular destination for families with children. There are also a few cafés and restaurants on a small beach promenade, which invite you to delicious meals and small snacks in between.
Cala del Gesso in Tuscany
On the peninsula of Monte Agentario in Tuscany, Italy, bathers will find the beautiful, natural beach of Cala del Gesso. And although the beach is one of the most beautiful in the whole country, it is rather empty than overcrowded even in the summer months.
San Vito Lo Capo In Sicily
A long sandy beach, which, in combination with rugged rocks and a lively promenade, is a real hotspot for bathing holidaymakers in Sicily. Not far from the small seaside resort of San Vito, holidaymakers will find a real paradise by the sea on the beach of San Vito Lo Capo. Tourists can relax there, do water sports and enjoy culinary delights in one of the many restaurants.
Capo Vaticano in Calabria
Small bays with turquoise blue, crystal clear water and a fine sandy beach surrounded by a few rocks – holidaymakers can enjoy this magical sight at Capo Vaticano near Topea. Located on a rocky outcrop, the cape is a popular destination for beach holidaymakers who would also like to see some of the underwater world off the coast of Italy.
Spiaggia Porto Selvaggio in Puglia
The town of Porto Selvaggio is located in the Italian region of Apulia, in the Marina of Nardò. It is known for its rugged coastline and natural bays – surrounded by dense and fragrant pine forests. To get to the pebbly beach, travelers also have to take a 20-minute walk along a forest path. Another special feature: there are also cold fresh water spots in the bay.
Piscine di Venere
The Piscine di Venere is not a classic beach. But it still has to be on this list because it is a natural swimming pool with shallow and warm sea water, at the tip of Capo di Milazzo in Sicily, separated from the sea by a reef. Snorkelers can see starfish, sea cucumbers and colorful fish there.
Cala Rossa in Favignana
Favignana, the small neighboring island of Sicily, is home to the dream beach of Cala Rossa. The fine sandy beach consists of two picturesque rocky bays. The two bays with crystal clear water are perfect for swimming. However, since the beach is very narrow, relaxing on the beach is rather difficult.
