La Secca offers a quiet cove with a restaurant and amenities. The beach is pebbly, but there is plenty of opportunity for swimming and the scenery is spectacular. There is a restaurant that offers cold dishes and panini.

We visited with passes from our hotel. The beach was immaculate and great to have the bar and restaurant there too. Such calm water and ideal for someone like me who is not a confident swimmer! Worth a lazy day.

La Secca is a very pretty beach with reasonably good service at the cafe where the food is freshly prepared standard fare. Beware the sun beds are very close together as the beach is small and because it is very safe for children. For us...More
