Ortano Beach


The beach, the islet of Oran and its coves.

Located halfway between Rio Marina and Rio nell'Elba, it offers a sandy beach mixed with gravel. The beach is free and uncrowded, with a portion reserved for guests of the nearby resort. On the beach there is still the pier once used for loading onto ships the ferrous material extracted from mines in the area. A jellyfish barrier is placed in the small bay. The water is crystal clear: rubber shoes are recommended for the rocky bottom. For those seeking maximum privacy, the islet of Ortano and other adjacent coves can be reached by swimming or through the rocks.
