The Shiny Coast

The stretch of coast that goes from the village of Rio Marina to Cavo is rich of Pyrite and Hematite.

In the past there were many open air caves, that can be still seen along the coast. The name Costa che Brilla (Shining Coast)is therefore linked to the presence of these minerals that under the light shine beautifully offering a unique and fascinating show. Also the beaches of that side of the island are characterized by bright black fine sand making this stretch of coast truly special.
