It takes its name from the mighty, tall tower of Piscinnì, which can be reached by a pathway and was probably built between the 16th and 17th centuries by the Spanish. It stands on a promontory, dominating the wild and striking panorama of beach and Mediterranean vegetation all around. Although the beach is part of the municipality of Domus de Maria, it is set between the earthly paradise of Tuerredda and the stupendous coves of Cape Malfatano, two of Teulada's most splendid and famous treasures, in a stretch of coast defined as a rias due to the rapid evolution from one landscape to another, from fine, very clear sand to towering cliffs of clay and granite. In practice, it represents the 'other sea' of Domus, famous for the countless enchanting beaches of Chia, 16 kilometres away from Piscinnì on the scenic panoramic road of the Costa del Sud, which is often the scene of car manufacturer commercials and which the historic car magazine 'Quattroruote' ranks as the fourth most beautiful road in Italy. It is ten kilometres from the town.
