Description of Sassi Neri beach

The environment surrounding the bay is very beautiful and interesting from a geological point of view. Composed of fine dark gravels, the part of the coast is composed of three small beaches along the cliffs exposed to the open sea.

Behind it stood a long time ago, one of the three mines of Mount Calamita, of which you can still see today the excavation areas, even if part of them are covered again by the Mediterranean maquis. Here is a few meters from the sea even an artificial lake of fresh water, where rainwater has taken the place of the mining site.
