Situated in the heart of the Vicentine Plain, an extensive area of farmland and pine forests, dotted here and there by deep, verdant gullies, this is a large, peaceful beach. High schist sea cliffs frame the beach, which is reached by a huge wooden staircase. The scent of rockrose is intense and mingles with the sea air as you approach the beach. The huge stretch of sand is almost 500 metres long and is very peaceful. At the far southern end it is possible to climb several dozen metres up a gully, carved into the rock by a tiny, crystal-clear stream. Thanks to the way the rocks lie in the sea, rock pools form at low tide allowing for peaceful bathing and the opportunity to observe intertidal species such as anemones, limpets, barnacles, gobies, prawns, starfish and many others.
