The beach is well-equipped, with a large parking right behind the beach and a family-run restaurant where you can order a delicious espresso, a cocktail or a wide variety of sandwiches. Toilets and showers are available. It is also possible to rent a boat at Porto Tramatzu to go around the coast and enjoy the fantastic views of Isla Rossa and other beaches in the area. Kayaks and pedal boats are available for rent as well. The area is also excellent for snorkeling. Porto Tramatzu can get busy in August, as there is a camping north of the beach.
