Torre Mozza Beach
The Spiaggia di Torre Mozza gets its name from the 16th-century tower that juts into the Tyrrhenian Sea in the middle of this long sandy stretch. Originally part of the coastal defences the tower was more recently a restaurant and now a hotel.
Torre Mozza beach lies within the natural landscape of the Parco Costiera Sterpai. The park forms a natural backdrop of scrub and dunes to either side of the tower.
Whilst much of the beach at Torre Mozza is a free beach (Spiaggia libera) there are concessions either side, including the bit of beach just west of the tower. Here you will find a couple of bars, a restaurant and umbrellas and loungers should you want to hire one.
That said, the free part of the beach stretches for around 200 metres and the sand is just as soft and golden as in the neighbouring pay beaches.
Sitting just offshore of the Spiaggia di Torre Mozza is a reef which runs the length of the beach. This both provides shelter from the waves and offers some great snorkelling with an abundance of fish and marine life to spot. It is even said by some that the reef may have once carried the Via Aurelia, an ancient Roman road.
