It's a good place to take a few photos. Nice view and sometimes there are people jumping to water from the top of the red rocks.

This small rock is notable because of its red colour, it merits a visit when in Arbatax but not worth the detour.

We'd targeted Arbatax for some reason, as an overnight break during our journey from the Corsica ferry at Santa Teresa, to Cagliari. Perhaps as it was recommended in one travel guide. In truth, the town was overtly industrial, with a little local charm around the...More

Very nice place to visit in Arbatax. You can take good photos of Rocce rosse. Highly recommended visit on Sardinia.
