Go 1 kilometer south-east from the Golfo Aranci port, and you’ll find Spiaggia dei Baracconi. Spiaggia dei Baracconi is a 260 meter long, thin strip of pebbly sand that faces south-west, offering nice views of Capo Figari, the Gulf of Aranci and the small Figarolo island. The waters here are clear and shallow, nice enough for some laid-back snorkelling or scuba diving. In the far distance, you might even spot some bottlenose dolphins, they frequently visit the fishing grounds 600 meters off the coast. The beach offers no services but has a parking lot right on the beach, big enough for several cars and campers. From Baracconi you can easily reach Cala Moresca, one of the best beaches of Golfo Aranci. It’ll be a 650 meter walk along the footpath. Given its small width, it’s best to visit this beach early in the morning during high season.
