Innamorata Beach


Innamorata Beach

The beach of the legend of Mary, the lover who disappeared into the waves in an attempt to reach her beloved Lorenzo.

There are no words to describe the genuine enchantment of this beach and the colors of its sunsets that frame the romantic legend of Maria, the lover who disappeared into the waves in an attempt to reach her beloved Lorenzo, who was kidnapped by the pirate Barbarossa. The legend dating back to the 1500s is re-enacted every year on July 14 with an evocative torchlight procession. From the beach you can swim or paddle boat to the Gemini islets, or you can take the path that starts to the left of the parking lot and in a 5-minute walk leads to the tip of the Ciarpe right in front of Gemini. Pay attention to the last stretch that is not easy. By car we can take a drive to the woods behind Punta Calamita where the Iron Trail begins.
