Due to its beauty and the integrity of its environment, this extraordinary bay has been declared a Natural Monument of the Region of Sardegna by a regional decree. It is famous for its wonderful limestone arch rising straight from the sea and for its needle or sugarloaf – a 100 metres high limestone monolith of extraordinary beauty towering above the little bay.

For those who visit the bay for the first time, it seems that you can almost touch the sea bottom which is situated at a depth of about 30 metres under the transparent sea water. A sight that tempts you to plunge into the sea from the boat. The beach is made up by a myriad of white pebbles and therefor it is unique of its kind. The water is slightly colder than in the other bays because of the numerous ice cold currents coming from the near river. Picking up the pebbles and approaching the shore by boat within a range 300 metres is absolutely forbidden.

Only some metres further to the north, there are two more wonderful beaches which can only be reached by the sea.

HOW TO GET THERE

this beautiful bay can be reached not only by boat but also by land taking an enchanting, strenuous path which is extraordinarily interesting and unforgettable. it leads through shrubs of bushes, holm oaks and white limestone faces.

coming down from the mountain, you can catch a glimpse of the intense blue sea while falcons are circling in the incredibly clear sky above you.
