I'd never heard of this beach until Fred at http://www.fred29.it/tempo-libero.html mentioned MTBing around there. I wanted to road bike to it and check it out. It's an easy flat ride, 70 km in 2.5 hours. It took an extra half hour coming back, maybe I was tired.
The last km or 2 of the road is hard packed dirt but is no problem on a road bike. There are a couple of trails to the beach through the pine forest, and then a wide, flat, hard-packed sand beach. This was great to find because the other local beaches are very commercialized: high rise hotels, souvenir shops, snack bars etc. This beach was all natural, a little like Fort Pickens National Seashore at Pensacola. Lots of heron, egrets, cormorants, ducks, seagulls and even a pheasant in the pine woods.
I rode on the beach a few hundred meters on my 23mm slicks till I reached a wooden boardwalk back to the entrance. Very pleasant ride and a new place to explore- I may come back with the dogs in a few weeks.
