CALA BURRONI BEACH
At the foot of the fortress belvedere.
How to get there
Going along the SP 17 you have to turn at the crossroads you meet about one kilometre after the straight road of Campus. At the crossroads you find some road signs indicating “Spiaggia del Riso” (Riso Beach) and “Porto turistico” (Tourist Port); follow the road signs for about 2 km.
You pass by the “Spiaggia del Riso”, the small recently built port, the crossroads for the Fortezza Vecchia (Old Fortress); continue along that road, ending with a rotunda, which is a sort of belvedere.
You can park there and take one of the paths leading to the beach underneath.
Cala Burroni is the rocky part of the wider beach of Cava Usai. The remains of a small house in ruins are still visible here: you can read the homonymous name written in white on a crumbling wall; near it there are pieces of squared granite showing the origin of the name.
The depth in this side of Capo Carbonara headland is rocky: it contributes to the intense shades of the sea, probably due to waters depths.
The vegetation is wonderful: granite rocks occasionally appear among the Mediterranean plants, which stretch all around.
