A beach/water experience with a difference. Totally relaxed atmosphere, excellent facilities, private parking, crystal clear water and best of all friendly and helpful staff. A little bit expensive but totally worth it. By the way nice food for lunch as well.

We were on a sailing holiday. We were at San Foca and needed a day of rest after 9 days sailing every day (strong winds and big seas). Our daughter found this place on TA. We took a taxi there (12 miles) and back. Slightly hard to find but taxi driver asked a policeman and got directions. When we arrived... More

This was recommended and booked by our hotel. It was early June and the weather was very windy so it was not busy and we didn't go in the sea after all. But there is also a small pool, a large lawn, lounge area, bar and restaurant so a good place to chill out for the afternoon. Food average.

The day time tranquillity for family groups or friends hanging out. Great welcoming atmosphere by the operating family, Italian & English speaking workers, & the night time transformation into the towns only fantastic vibrant night club!

We found this beach club after a bit of looking around. When we were there it was quite empty but that was actually quite nice. We got a lot of space for ourselves. Rent a sunbed (10-15 Euro) and relax next to the water and cliffs. There is a pool (which we did not try) and stairs that helps you... More

The English translation is "he Sweet Shore" & it certainly is! It is like arriving to a hidden hide away along a long road. How ever it is well worth the trip. Oasis by day, and pumping raging nightclub at night. Music is great! Atmosphere can not be criticised! It is a little pricey for drinks but many places that... More
