Le scogliere di Punta di Corvo


Le piccole falesie, presenti in questo tratto di costa e formatisi attraverso il moto ondoso, ospitano delle suggestive cavità: è il caso della splendida Grotta dei Contrabbandieri, profonda cava situata nella costa orientale della spiaggia principale e attraversata da una lingua di mare che nelle prime ore del pomeriggio si illumina di un chiarore spettacolare. L’area di Punta Corvo, dove si trova un vecchio faro oggi abbandonato, è caratterizzata da scogliere frastagliate e piccole insenature ricoperte da palme nane. Queste affascinanti scogliere sono il luogo ideale per chi ama tuffarsi e fare snorkeling.
