Great beach, not too crowded. Parking service available close by for only 5 euro-all day. The 10-15 hike to access to the beach is very steep but worth it for the beautiful panorama.

This beach is just fabulous! Wear shoes fit for trekking, flipflops, high heels or slippery soles not advisable. It's quite a steep descent - and climb back up - but worth it. Our activity watch said approximately 140 meter climb while walking 500 meters. Several...More

Nice beach, the hardest to reach in all the Mount Conero area. Very nice and quiet. A small restaurant with a good seafood menu is the only building you can see in the area.

Mezzavalle is an amazing beach in the Conero area between Ancona and Portonovo. I visited several times between May and July. The water was always clear and the beach never got crowded. It’s a perfect place to relax. Definitely one of the best beaches in...More
