Great location on Macinaggio beach, just a short stroll into town where there are plenty of restaurants and bars. There is a spar minimarket a five minute walk away, which is scruffy but adequate for self catering. We enjoyed the apartment, with its roomy terrace and comfy bed. The kitchen had good appliances (dishwasher, large fridge freezer) but was very lacking in other equipment. No sharp knife or grater, for example. We asked for these... but didn’t get them. Our water heater was in the cupboard in our bedroom and at times it woke me up in the early hours when it kicked into action. But I am a light sleeper.
Macinaggio beach is a bit seaweedy but the sea is lovely, especially at the far end of the beach from the Adonis. There is a great walk over the headland which leads to beautiful Tamarone beach, and from there you can continue to stunning coves such as Cala Genovese, which we loved (see photo). The hills behind Macinaggio are scattered with beautiful villages, well worth a visit for the views.
We loved the area for its ‘end of the road’ feeling and its access to unspoilt, undeveloped coastline. The apartment was fine, and the location was great, though it’s a shame they don’t make a bit more effort with the external landscaping around the outside of the property.
