The Giunco as the locals call it, is the longest beach on the island. It is located less than 2 km from the town, just past Corso Battellieri.
It owes its name from the large amount of rattan plants that border the beach which has the benefit of having very shallow waters that continues for a long distance from the beach. With warm waters and a sheltered position, this is a great area for children to play peacefully.
It is the only beach on the island that has an area reserved for visitors with dogs.
Ideal for families, children and the elderly, it can be reached directly by car and is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
It does not have a lifeguard rescue and there are no dining options.
