It is a sandy beach, but the bottom of the cove is mostly rocky throughout the small gulf. In the center of the cove is a dense plantation of sea anemones, creating an attractive underwater environment. However, on the north side, the rocks are covered by red earth residues, which can significantly reduce visibility. This beach offers a fantastic underwater world, making it ideal for snorkeling. You can explore the sea and observe large schools of fish, octopuses, cuttlefish, and other marine life, but please be cautious of currents when swimming toward the sea. Visitors can enjoy a fantastic view of the bay from the nearby Torre del Porticciolo, known as La Torre del Portitxol, in the Algherese Catalan dialect. If you can, stay here until sunset! It’s also interesting to know that there have also been sightings of fallow deer in the area. Despite its beauty, Spiaggia di Porticciolo is not usually too crowded, providing a more peaceful and serene atmosphere. A small establishment within the campsite provides a bar and rescue service. To reach Spiaggia di Porticciolo, you have two options. The first is a descent directly from the parking lot, which can be challenging but not overly complex. Alternatively, you can pass through the campsite to access the beach. The beach itself is sandy, with the initial meters of the sea being a mix of sand and stones. However, large stones appear shortly after, but it is still easy to enter and exit the water without needing shoes. Overall, Spiaggia di Porticciolo is a fabulous beach with diverse marine life, beautiful underwater scenery, and a stunning view from the nearby tower. Off-season, it offers a less crowded environment so that you can enjoy a peaceful and enjoyable day.
