CALA ROSTELLA I CALA MURTRA
 
Two small coves, running for 100 and 120 metres respectively, and difficult to get to by land. They are highly secluded, unspoiled and with a cliffy backdrop. The easiest way to get to them is thus by boat, which makes them into little paradises less than seven kilometres from the town. In order to extend the municipality’s tourist provision and cater for all kinds of tourists, nudism is permitted in Murtra cove only.

Services:
Beach and water cleaning.
