Not far from Cala dei Benedettini is Cala degli Inglesi with a postcard view.
The Spiaggia dei Pagliai is the most photographed of the Tremiti Islands and can only be reached by boat. The name derives from the rocks and cliffs formed in the white limestone that give the idea of huge piles of straw resting on the water. Cala delle Roselle so called for the roses that bloom in this area and Cala delle Arene, is located along the east coast of the island and is an unmissable sandy beach.

Marinella beach is one of the best known and most popular on the island of San Nicola with its narrow and elongated shape, made up of a white cliff that slopes down to the sea, easily accessible from the sea.

Among the places to visit there are certainly the hidden caves along the coast: the Swallow Cave, so called because swallows nest there, the Cave of the Violets, one of the most beautiful caves for its extraordinary blue-green water reflections and the Sea Ox Cave, where limestone cliffs can be seen plunging into the crystal clear waters.
