It's a good place to take a few photos. Nice view and sometimes there are people jumping to water from the top of the red rocks.

Well as we were doing a road trip around the island we managed to see a lot. This was a rather nice to see but nothing you would miss. Red rocks with many people trying to get a pic. If you go, go early. Free,...More

Although this is viewed either from the sea or a dusty parking lot, the rock formation is beautiful and sometimes there are people who dove off the high points. The view to the sea is also pretty. Somethings amusement parks set up in this lot.

Our visit to Arbatax was very disappointing in that the town has had a real downtown over the last decade from whence it was a thriving ferry port. However we were delighted to discover these very unusual outcrop of rocks just a 100m opposite the...More

Nice place in Arbatax - the red rocks just by the sea. Interesting stop in our journey, the kids from the town use the rocks as jumping point. We were on the way from Muravera to Cala Gonone so it was close enough to drop...More

Very nice place to visit in Arbatax. You can take good photos of Rocce rosse. Highly recommended visit on Sardinia.

The rock formation itself is quite nice but the unfinished walling and fenced off areas that the local commune abandoned 20 odd years ago, severely detract from making this a nice location. There is good swimming and diving for those that don't mind a rocky...More

Beautiful red rocks mixed with marble and volcanic rocks on the coast. It's possible to go in the red rocks by a little tunnel.
