Choose a hotel by the beach

Ostriconi is a beautiful natural beach, nestled in a wide bay and hidden from the surroundings by a small sand dune and rocky outcrop. It gives the impression of a completely deserted beach in a beautiful setting.

Swimming and beach facilities

Ostriconi beach is well known, but never overcrowded. Its width always allows for at least a little privacy and the beautiful natural surroundings will keep you here for the whole day. However, count on the fact that you won't find any refreshments or services here, so bring plenty of snacks with you.
