Many consider it one of the most charming beaches of the Conero Riviera, a real corner of paradise nestled amidst the white limestone cliffs overlooking the sea and the green vegetation of the Conero flora. It is a fine gravel beach with clear crystal water where it will be impossible not to dive. Thanks to the reef just off the coast the sea is always calm, a real natural pool. It is particularly suitable for lovers of small wild coves and snorkelers. It alternates free beach areas with private equipped lidos.
HOW TO GET THERE AND WHERE TO PARK
It is reachable in two ways:
– Starting from the centre of Numana, passing by Piazza Nova, next to the hotel Eden Gigli there is a narrow paved road that goes down. In this way we recommend you to park near the centre of Numana where you can find both free and paid parking area (Maxi parking with cheap daily rate and free shuttle bus service).
– Starting from the tourist port, passing by the Spiaggiola beach, you can walk to it. In this way we suggest you to park in Numana Bassa (Low Numana) in the seafront promenade, in the toll parking areas opposite the lidos or in the Maxi parking of Piazzale Adriatico with cheap daily rate and free shuttle bus service.
