Inside the sheltered bay of Cala Spalmatore, with its reddish rocks and striking green vegetation, is one of the largest and most spectacularly beautiful beaches on the island of San Pietro: La Caletta (The Cove).

Characterized by fine white sand and sheltered by a low cliff, with attractive boulders and reefs that go right into the water from the beach.

The crystal clear water is shallow and of an extraordinary light green and blue color, and the beach floor is sandy, making it particularly suitable for children, especially when the sea is calm.  The exception is when the mistral wind blows and sea conditions become unsafe.  It’s the ideal destination for divers and surfers.

It is situated along the Provincial Road 102, south of the harbor of Carloforte, and can be reached by following the posted directions.

The beach has a parking space, a bar, and dining areas, with beach chair and umbrella rentals, but only in summer.

There is a lifeguard rescue service in place during July and August.

Suitable for everyone and accessible to people with reduced mobility.
