Visited here on three occasions, very friendly. They also manage the beds and umbrellas for this section of the beach which was very reasonable at €10 for 2 beds and 1 umbrella, not sure if prices go up in height of season.. Also free wifi. Very clean toilets as well..

A quieter beach even in August. Clean and has a few bars which were very pleasant with brilliant facilities. Although the most expensive we had paid in the island. The sea was pleasant but the waves were strong for our toddler. We preferred coco beach which we went to via a water taxi and San Montana. Both were shallow and... More

This is one of the worst beaches I have visited. Most of it is privately owned and only a small space is open to the public. The sand is extremely dirty and full of rubbish and the sea is not very clean either. The sand isn't soft at all and hurts your feet and its overall a terrible beach. Chiaia... More

When I booked our hotel, the research I did led me to believe this was a public beach. However, the section of this beach that remains free for public use is about a 20m stretch that is consequently rammed full of families jostling for a spot. The rest is carved up between beach front businesses that have staked out their... More

I found this place totally by mistake Lol got off the bus to go to Forio Port and walked all the way down this massive hill and ended up her and had lunch. Its great for a beach resort, not much there but isolated enough for a day away from it all.

The bars and beach are down a very steep hill. There is a public bus (number 2) that visits every 30 mins or so - or you can catch almost any other bus from Forio, get off at the top of the hill and walk down. There are a great selection of restaurants and bars along the beach - but... More

We are A family of five. We spent one day at this beach. Paid 36 EUR for A small space with four beds and two umbrellas. This beach was not good for small children as the water was very deep
