CALA CATERINA BEACH
Next to the old fortress.
How to get there
On the SP 17, you have to turn at the crossroads you meet about one kilometre after the straight road of Campus.
At the crossroads you find road signs indicating the "Spiaggia del Riso" and the "Porto turistico": follow the road sign for about two kilometres.
Go beyond the "Spiaggia del Riso", the recently built small port, the crossroads of the Old Fortress, then turn when you see a road sign for the Restaurant "Ragno Blu". You can park there. Go along the path, which borders private villas, the beach is about 600 m away.
It is a small bay, divided into little creeks by granite rocks emerging from the sea. The pink sand is the result of the granite erosion: this sand colours the shoreline.
Behind it, there are emerging cliffs, which are covered with succulent plants with small pink and violet flowers, which delicately shade off into lighter or darker colours and offer a beautiful sight, taking your breath away. The depth is mostly rocky; the deep water has intense blue shades. From time to time there are lighter colours in the sandy parts; all these colours contribute to the chromatic variety of the landscape.
There are no facilities.
