In this fascinating stretch of coast, the dark basalt rocks form splendid inlets and small bays. This point commands a breathtaking view along the coast, from Capo Sferracavallo to the south to Capo Monte Santo to the north, backed by the profile of the Baunei mountains. The seabed consists of a series of stone terraces. The last one, resting on the sandy bottom, is perforated by small gullies and caves rich in fascinating encrustations and teeming with plant and animal life. Much of the seabed is covered by prairies of posidonia oceanica seagrass, a telltale sign of the purity of the deep blue waters. The rocky coastline is backed by a basalt upland covered by lush Mediterranean scrub.
