The beach of Porto Corallo has coarse sand and is hemmed by vegetation that reaches down onto the beach. In the water there are numerous tracts of rock.

The name harkens to the presence of coral colonies, the gathering of which has gone on for many eras, and they are set in the preparation of marvellous objects, especially in combination with gold.

Behind the beach, reigns a Spanish tower of the sixteenth century, that had the function of sighting the fleets of pirates that infested and plundered the area of Villaputzu.
