The wide beach is of sand mixed with medium and fine pale grey shingle. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, since the beach is used by families and nature-lovers.
Reale beach is 120 metres long and 22 wide with a rocky seabed; the reefs at the ends ensure enjoyable excursions for snorkelling enthusiasts. It faces south east and therefore offers crystal-clear water when the common Maestrale wind is bowing.
The beach offers you a small, fully-equipped beach club and a diving center.
From the left end of the beach, an easy path takes you in a few minutes to the nearby Terranera pool
, divided from a sea with unique colours and a beautiful seabed by a thin strip of sand and shingle. Along the way you will see architectural remains of the old mining operations; the pool itself was formed when the small open-cast mine from which haematite, magnesite and pyrites were extracted gradually filled with sulphur-rich water. A magical place for mineral collectors.
From the right end of the beach a scenic path through green surroundings leads (about 3 km) to Barbarossa beach and on to the centre of Porto Azzurro.
