Waste of time
Sep 2020 • Couples
Tourist trap - avoid! We came here expecting to see the beautiful photos brought to life, however, we’ve been left very disappointed.
Firstly, you have to pay for parking then pay an entrance fee (€3 each). There are no visits, explanation boards etc. so you leave without learning anything about the site!
Secondly, the site was PACKED. This was on a Thursday evening in September so I cannot imagine the crowds during summer... People are standing around in bunches watching the odd few people jump into the “pool”. It’s not relaxing or enjoyable. There were also a group of locals who seemed to take over the main jumping spots so tourists don’t get much of a chance..
Waste of a journey coming here sadly. I hope this is helpful to others.

Beautiful views

A relaxing walk through the ruins was nice. You will need closed toed shoes for this walk as the rocks are sharp and uneven. It took us about an hour at a leisurely pace.

You can swim in the Grotto Poesia and down by the Vecchia rocks
Jun 2019 • Family
All the way to the Grotto, people were swimming in the sea by the rocks. Beautiful little caves and obviously crystal clear water. Peaceful place and free, no need for sunbeds although a couple of folks had set up their umbrellas in the rocks. No toilets.

Very old settelment from the 4th century B.C. on the coast. Visiting of the archeological aerea with wall, necropole and houses in the cliffs. Beautiful place for swimming and jumping into the sea.

Very beautiful natural landscape

The caves that the seaside carved here in rocks are something unique and so is the color of the water. Worth a visit!

Very Touristy

Just not my cup of tea. Having to queue and hang around and pay for the privilege.Too many coaches and on a moody weather day not much to see. It's probably beautiful on a sunny day but just not that day!

not managed....

Left abandoned. The good side is that walking beside the area you can reach the coast side and the Roca, nice spot with much less people to enjoy the sun and a good swim!
