Cala Brandinchi beach has amazingly clear and shallow waters, making this beach perfectly suitable for families with small children. Cala Brandinchi beach faces east and is over 700 meters long – perfect for a relaxing stroll along the waterline! Sandy dunes with pine trees and lovely lillies further define the excellent surroundings of this beach.
