It is one of the most unspoiled and wild beaches in the area, dominated by Torre Civette, a white tower overlooking the promontory, from which it is named.
Cala Civette is popular with diver, snorkelers and swimmers as well as keen amateur fishermen.
Since it’s a pain in the butt to get to – the only access points were recently closed by a Russian landowner – the beach is blissfully empty most of the time. So if you have the patience and dedication to walk through the pine forest and down to the coast, you will be rewarded by stunning scenery, fine sand and crystal clear water.
In the summer months, there is a free parking lot, which can be reached from the main road. Keep an eye out for the signs.
