A beach so special it was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Goloritzé is tiny and located on the northeastern coast of the island.
It is one of ten sublime beaches in Italy chosen. Scala dei Turchi (Sicily), Italian for 'Stair of the Turks', is another: it features a cliff that looks like a staircase, attracting many tourists after it appeared in a series of popular detective stories.
Spiaggia delle Due Sorelle (Marche) is Italian for 'Beach of the Two Sisters', named after the two rocks sticking out of the water that look like two nuns praying. Meanwhile, Baia delle Zagare in Puglia is exclusive, allowing just 30 visitors a day outside of guests at its namesake hotel.
