Even if there are a lot of people the beach is nice sea is beautiful and you can swim very far. No waves. No danger. But be carful if you are not a good swimmers you can rent a kayak.

Spent a week in Torre dell'Orso, the sea is beautiful, with clear waters and white sand, warm water, but the beach is extremely overcrowded and the sand is dirty. It must be a great spot off season, but I would not recommend it in August.

The sand and water is amazing. It's extremely crowded. It's perfect for kids. Seems better in early mornings and late afternoons.
