Description of Le Tombe beach

Le Tombe, are three small beaches close together and they own the name to the presence of some Etruscan tombs found nearby. This beautiful wild beaches, free of any service, are composed of dark pebbles polished by the sea. In order to reach them by land you need to cross the location of Le Tombe through a challenging trail which is about 2 km from the tourist resort of Pomonte.
