Our opinion on the Vana Cove

Adresse of the Vana Cove : Ostriconi - Sentier des Douaniers 20226 Palasca

Cala di Vana, a small sandy cove sheltered from the winds, is at the end of Ostriconi Beach. This sandy cove, not very well known and only accessible by the coastal footpath, is a haven of peace. The ruins of a Genoese tower and an old barn are located nearby.

To get to this cove, follow the directions of Ostriconi Beach. One will have to cross it in a northerly direction then take the coastal footpath. It takes one hour on foot to get there (the distance is not long but one frequently walks in the sand which is a bit difficult).

This cove, wedged between two points, is fairly well protected from the winds (but one has to be careful when the sea is rough as Ostriconi is famous for being very dangerous).
