Cala Violina: The beach is known for the sound of its sand that, when you step on it, resembles that of a violin. For this reason, it was assigned the name of Cala Violina.
Surrounded by Mediterranean bush, to get there you need to walk for a while in the greenery, where you will be able to get glimpses of other small coves that precede it.
How to reach Cala Violina, the two paths
There are two paths to Cala Violina, the first stretch is the same for both.
Make a left at the traffic light of the cape towards Castiglione and then turn right before the wide steep curve. Drive along the road for about 2 miles and when you arrived at the restaurant “Il Cantuccio” you must continue on foot or bicycle. Cross a zone of Mediterranean bush with breathtaking views on the various coves preceding it and after about 4 km you will arrive at Cala Violina. Taking the alternative path, turn left at the traffic light of the cape and drive up the steep road. After about 300 meters there is a crossing on the right, you will arrive at the parking lot through a dirt road. From there continue walking for 2 miles in the Mediterranean bush.
One of these coves is called Cala Martina, known as the place where Giuseppe Garibaldi set sail to get to Porto Venere.
At the traffic light of the cape turn left towards Castiglione and then make a right right before the slope. Continue straight for approximately 2 km to the restaurant “Il Cantuccio”. Continue on foot or bicycle through the Mediterranean bush with breathtaking views on several coves. After about 2 km you will reach Cala Martina.
