Forno Beach

Forno Beach - Italy
© Luciano Mortula and licensed for reuse under this Licence

The third and smallest of three beaches in Biodola Bay, Forno beach is also the best. Set in a picturesque little cove surrounded by forested hillsides and overlooked by fine villas this little beach also manages to escape the worst of the summer crowds.

The beach here is fine golden sand and the warm Mediterranean water crystal clear, but what gives the cove its particular charm is the way the houses spill right down onto the beach and the small fishing boats often pulled up on the beach. Many of the villas overlooking the cove at Forno are holiday rentals and offer breathtaking views out over the bay to the mountains beyond.

The gently sloping sands and relative shelter of the beach here make it ideal for a swimming and there are plenty of rocky nooks and crannies for snorkelling. Perhaps the biggest drawback is the lack of parking, although this is why Forno remains that bit less crowded than Biodola’s other beaches.
