Formicoli

Formicoli

(S. Domenica di Ricadi)

Formicoli is a silent beach even if it is quite haunted especially in August. About 300 metres from the coast you find rocks which reach out of the water. This series of rocks is called Formicoli and it’s said that these remain from an antique roman port. There it is really interesting to go diving or snorkeling or just to stay in the warm sun.  Molto interessante fare diving o snorkeling o solo godersi il sole caldo.
