Establishment
“45 minutes drive from Rodani's Villa, Tuerredda is definitely the best beach of the South West Coast. Crystalline water, white fine sand beach and right in front of it, a small islet that you can reach by swimming. Local tip: being the most beautiful beach, in the peak season may be very crowded. Better to go there in the early morning if you wish to reserve your favorite spot, otherwise, if you prefer to enjoy a more peaceful spot, you can move to the close Spiaggia di Ferraglione, a small secluded cove nearby Tuerredda.”
