Description of Malpasso Beach

The beach of Malpasso is one of the several eastern coves located along the pristine coastline of Costa dei Gabbiani. Malpasso is characterized by a small sandy and pebbly shore, which is exposed to the winds blowing from the northeastern quadrant. The beach, which is immersed in the green of the low Mediterranean maquis, is quiet and uncrowded, as it is not easy to reach by land and therefore ideal for those seeking tranquility.

At both sides, the beach is sheltered by headlands: at West, Punta Cala Nuova separates it from the neighboring beach of Ferrato Due; while the eastern headland divides it from Calanova beach.

Access to Malpasso beach

To reach Malpasso beach, you must take a path along the dirt road that from Straccoligno leads to Calanova. You find the entrance next to a bend on a scenic area, about 1.2 km away from Straccoligno, where begins a challenging downhill path through the Mediterranean maquis, until you reach the small beach.
