The gorgeous sandy beaches are the highlight of the Park, welcoming tourists with their long strips of fine, light-colored sand that creates unique glows and shades as it reflects the bright sunlight from its surface.
However, the environment that best defines this area are the sand dunes. In terms of structure, they are both mobile — undergoing continuous transformation according to the winds and covered by “pioneer” plants — and stationary — covered by the typical fragrant vegetation of the Mediterranean scrub, such as the Phoenician juniper and the mastic tree. The brackish soil of this region is home to plants like tamarisk and glasswort. Right behind these dunes lies a coastal forest of ash trees, Turkey oaks and cork oaks of remarkable size, proof of the botanical biodiversity of the area.
The wonderful beaches make the Sterpaia Park the ideal summer vacation spot: from Cala Violina to Mortelliccio to Torre Mozza, all enriched with excellent tourist facilities designed to have the lowest environmental impact.
The shoreline faces a sea of crystalline waters, revealing a shallow and sandy seafloor that smoothly and gradually descends towards greater depths, where you can freely explore as you discover the sparkling underwater life — together with your children, if you wish.
Both children and adults can go on long walks in the shaded pine forest or on the shoreline, where you will always find convenient rest points and refreshment facilities, perfectly integrated into this natural oasis.
