In its crystal clear waters you can see sulphurous fumes, which are the peculiarities of the place. The beach is located between the promontory of Tindari and Capo Calavà and, beacuse of this one, in the evening the sky turns its colours to reddish ones.

Since there is no parking area, only a few people can get there. For this reason the environment is clean and wild as a small oasis in the nature. The colour of the water is emerald green on the left and reddish on the right thanks to the reflections of the promontory of Calavà and of the rock.
