The “Grottino” is half way down the scenic stairway that descends, along the headland, to the beach. It takes its name from the cave known as the “Grotta del Saraceno”. It has two terraces and is the perfect place for an evening drink under the stars. Its position, on the way to the beach, makes it a great choice for a cold snack.
