The beach of La Padulella
If you love beaches with light sand, La Padulella will be one of the necessary choices. It is located near Capo Bianco and there are beautiful white cliffs to frame it. The right day to visit it? Surely when the wind comes from the south: the color of the sea will seem even more bright.
This is the closest beach to the Hotel Acquamarina. The brilliant white of the tall cliffs all around the beach that seem to plunge right down into the water stand out against the crystal clear, turquoise colour of the sea. The beach faces north, so its beauty is even more enhanced when a southern wind is blowing because it makes the sea even clearer,
and thanks to the white sea bed it goes from emerald green to turquoise and blue. it is about 170 metres long and consists of small, white, smooth pebbles ; depending on the winds, you will sometimes see heaps of dried posidonia on the beach brought in by the tide.
This beach is within the Protected Biological Area that goes from
Punta di Capo Bianco as far as Punta Falcone and the Scoglietto out at sea (included). In 1971 it was classed as a marine protection area, and this, plus the fact that there are many sand beds to the right of the beach, means the sea is rich in fauna so is perfect if you want to go snorkelling.
