The best beaches and coves in Italy

Spiaggia dei COnigli
Have you decided to spend your summer holidays in Italy ? Very good choice! And it is that beyond having an important cultural and artistic heritage, this country offers a temperate climate most of the year and has beaches that have little to envy those of other corners of the planet. In fact, some of the sands along the Italian coast are considered by many to be among the best on the planet.

Taking into account that Italy has 7,500 kilometers of coastline, it is not surprising that throughout the country we can find beaches and coves of all kinds. Today at Vuela Viajes we want to tell you about the best. Would you like to join us?

Spiaggia dei Conigli

Spiaggia dei COnigli1
How could it be otherwise, let’s start by talking about what for many is one of the best beaches on the planet. We refer to the Spiaggia dei Conigli (Beach of the Rabbits), a beautiful sandy area that offers a typical postcard image. Located in Sicily, specifically on the island of Lampedusa, Playa de los Conejos stands out for its wild appearance, which it has been able to preserve thanks to its isolation. And it is that you can only get there by boat.

Cala Rossa

Cala Rossa
Also in Sicily is Cala Rossa, specifically on the island of Favignana, belonging to the natural reserve of the Egades Islands. Wild in appearance, this wide bay stands out above all for the color of its waters, which ranges from dark blue to turquoise, passing through a magical greenish hue.

Cala Mariolu

Cala Mariolu
In Baunei, a municipality on the island of Sardinia, we find Cala Mariolu, a beach with crystal clear waters and numerous caves perfect for all kinds of people, especially children, since the water is calm and shallow; and for divers. Although it can be reached on foot via a hiking path suitable for professionals, most people access the beach by boat.

La Pelosa

La Pelosa
Another beach that could not be missing from the list is La Pelosa, a sandy area located in Stintio, on the island of Sardinia. Located between two islands, it offers fine white sands and calm turquoise waters. Of course, we cannot talk about this beach without mentioning Torre la Pelosa, a construction that has been kept to the north of the beach since the 15th century. Also, you should bear in mind that diving in this place is almost an obligation.

Tropea Beach

From Sardinia we moved to the west coast of Calabria, where Tropea is located, a town that, in addition to having one of the best- preserved old towns in the country, offers crystal clear waters and fine white sands ideal for lying in the sun. In addition, from Tropea you can contemplate a beautiful sunset.

Cala Golortizé

Cala Goloritze
We also want to talk about Cala Goloritzé, a beautiful beach located in Baunei, in Sardinia. What we like the most about this place is that it is a practically virgin beach, with thick white sand and beautiful views. In addition, its waters are a beautiful turquoise blue due to the underwater springs.

Bay of Silence

Baia del Silenzio
In Sestri Levante, about 60 kilometers south of Genoa, we find the Bay of Silence (Baia del Silenzio), a beach with clean waters that surprises for being surrounded by pastel- colored houses and having numerous fishing boats on the sand , which gives it a touch of the most picturesque.

Porto Giunco

Porto Giunco
Finally, we want to talk about Porto Giunco, a beautiful beach located in the municipality of Villasimius. With white sand, this sandy area is surrounded by crystalline waters that will leave you with your mouth open. Also, very close by is the Notteri swamp, where numerous pink flamingos live.
