Great deep water solo area. Inside a large Grotto. Up to 12 meter high cliffs to climb. Quite popular. One doesn’t need to be able to do 6b’s to have fun here, you can link your own easier routes.


Deep Water Solo Grotto on the Porto Pino peninsula. The water is super clear so you can see where is safe to climb and where is not in terms of water depth. You can scramble down to the water from either side of the Grotto. Routes include vertical, overhang and roof with a nice stepped rock formation in some spots.

Access issues

Avoid when the sea is wild, could be dangerous while swimming to the wall. The water is quite clear so you can see where the rocks are underwater but take care.


Park in the dirt car park next to the water just down from Ristorante Oasi Verde Candiani. The road is pretty rough on the way in, it’s doable in a normal car but slowly as it’s super bumpy Roman-road style. Once at the car park follow the path on the coast West for 10-15 minutes to Grotta dei Baci.

Where to stay

Theres not much in the way of camping nearby, but there’s quite a few hotels etc. People in Vans stay overnight in the dirt carpak however the local government forbids people sleeping there, so you run the risk of a fine.
