Leonardo, the bartender at Hotel Miramonte, is very good. If classic cocktails with a killer view and amazing aperitivi are your thing, stop by the bar at this wonderful hotel on Baia de Silenzio. You will not be disappointed.

Recommended by locals. Free but then without chairs/parasols etc. Sandy/shingly but nice area to soak up the sun & have a dip. Take your snorkel or goggles to see variety of aquatic life
