Fantastic beach!

An incredible beach with stones and white wall, clean water. We used the public beach. Lovely, to visit.

Refreshment stop during the boat tour.
Sep 2019
We stopped her for a break during our boat tour of the Gargano coast. We did not disembark due to the large pebbles and the fact that I am slightly infirm of foot but the beach was well occupied and looked very pretty with its wooded white cliff top surroundings.

Beautiful beach BUT overall AVOID
Aug 2019 • Family
The beach is so beautiful and we had a wonderful day so nature would get 5 stars. You can take a sea kayak out to the caves or a pedalo and the water is clear. Overall though you must AVOID this beach.

1. There was clearly a man-made rip off going on in the car parks. We read it would cost €5 on trip advisor but they had cheekily pasted that over with a cheap piece of paper saying €10. I wouldn’t have minded paying that if they had spent some of the money upgrading the beach facilities. However, in my opinion they are just fleecing tourists who had no choice pay through the nose and very little, if any of the money appears to be being spent on proper humane facilities for the people using the beach.

2. The second reason I would say AVOID this beach is that the most disgusting thing was that we could only find one workimb portaloo toilet open to the public on the beach. There were 4 loos but 2 were out of action and in the third the flush didn’t work so human excrement was visible. The one loo that flushed had no loo seat so wouldn’t pass any hygiene standards. There was no loo paper. People were having to resort to providing their own tissues!

3. We thought that this was utterly sad given it is known as such an area of beauty as to us it meant that people would be forced to go in the sea. When swimming we couldn’t get it out of our heads that we could be swimming in litres of urine rather than seawater. It somewhat spoilt the experience. Such a shame for one of the most beautiful Beaches on the Gargano Peninsula.

4. We really hope that someone intervenes urgently and sorts this problem out to stop overcharging of tourists and the nearly zero hygienic public toilet services available on this still sensationally beautiful beach.

amazing & dog friendly
Aug 2019
beautiful beach but get there early as it can get crowded

the beach chairs next to the public area allows dogs, which is hard to find in this area. the staff is super nice and the cost is quite low compared to nearby spots (25 € for one umbrella and two chairs, no towel). bring cash!

there are two options for parking:
(1) park further away and take a free shuttle to the beach for 5€
(2) park more closely and walk down a long flight of stairs for 10€

we opted for 2 but only do that if you don't have a lot of stuff to carry and everyone in your group is fit enough to go down the stairs and climb back up. the shuttle/navette looked quite full towards the end of the day so there was a line to get back to the other parking lot. parking lots were cash only.

this is a pebble beach as are most of the beaches in the area so may be worth investing in water shoes

there are fish and we saw someone come back to shore with 3 sea urchins after having gone out with flippers and a snorkel!

Hidden Gem. Clean beach. Perfect
Aug 2019 • Family
A very clean pebble beach. We came here twice eventhough it was an hour drive from where we were staying. This beach is in Vieste. Once you turn off the main road and head down towards the beach. The road is quite narrow. You will arrive at a parking lot, it costs 10 euros. Park your car and then take the minibus down to the beach for free. It's a 3 mins ride. On site there are sunbeds and 2 snack bars, toilet facilities (no paper) and a paid shower (.50cents)
The free area extends to the right of the snack bar. However, if you go further towards the end you will not have sun by 2pm. It's better to stay beside the sunbeds because you'll get sun till 6pm or later.
You can rent kayaks and even jump on the taxi boat.
A really great beach to go to. Mostly Italian locals and Italian tourist. The atmosphere is quite relaxed the snack bar and ground staff are very friendly and helpful.
Really recommend.

Beautiful beach but crowded in season
Aug 2019
The beach is wonderful with a very clean water but the part with umbrellas is very small so you feel like sardines in the box there. The service of two little restaurants is ok unless you get there at the same time as the boat arrives with lots of tourists.

Beautifull Beach
Jul 2019
You Will need to drive quiteva bit from the main Road to go there. And once you think you are there you are left with an option of going to the Beach with a minivan (10euro) or walk 800 meters. At the Beach you Can rent an umbrella for 22 euros. It is a pebble Beach but exetremely beautiful. Good facilities at the Beach as Well

Lovely beach where the water just drops immediately and the stones are amazing for us from Australia not used to non sandy beaches. Was a little cold when we were here but still went for a swim in the beautiful water. We walked from the nature trail starting near bay of zingare

Pretty beach, but the walk down was better than the destination
May 2019 • Couples
We followed the Gargano tourism map walk from the highway to the beach (approximately 2km through olive trees). When we arrived at the beach it seems there is private parking nearby and a lot easier access than the path led us to believe.

It doesn't matter as we really enjoyed the walk, which gives great views across the cliffs and plains around Mattinata.

While the beach was essentially empty on a rainy midweek day in May, I imagine in summer it is busy and unpleasant.

The beach itself is pebbly and has large overhanging calcite cliffs. It looks impressive but I don't know if it makes it a nice swimming beach.
