About Spiaggia di Santa Giusta
Drive a few hundred meters north from Sant’Elmo, and you’ll discover Santa Giusta beach (Spiaggia di Santa Giusta). It faces east and has a length of about 1100 meters in total. On the north side is where you’ll find the famous Scoglio di Peppino (Peppino’s Rock), a natural extension of Punta Santa Giusta. This picturesque rock is about 30 meters long, and shaped like a big whale. It can easily be reached from the beach through shallow waters, and it is low and flat enough to walk on. Around the rock you’ll spot some natural pools and small inlets.
Spiaggia di Santa Giusta has thin sand, with the presence of small pebbles scattered along its sandy shore. Near the shore, its waters are shallow, making this a nice beach for families with children. It has various facilities such as a large car parking area that’s also suitable for campers. In the middle section of the beach, there’s a bar/restaurant where lunch can be enjoyed. Sun beds, parasols, and pedal boats are available to rent.
