Sea and beachesA stretch of fine sand, over 7 Kilometres long, the Poetto skirts the city , leading a glance which gets lost in the horizon. Framed by the Sella del Diavolo, unmistakable headland warding the port of Marina Piccola, the Poetto is called "the beach of the hundred thousand people" (spiaggia dei centomila).
Right beyond the gulf, along the coast, bays and inlets conceal, Calamosca, Cala Fighera, Capo Sant'Elia, nice to discover by boat.
