Biniancolla Cove

A postcard cove

What will attract your attention if you visit Biniancolla, will not be its beaches. What stands out above all in this cove located south of the island is its environment, which offers a picturesque landscape of typical white houses, with an inlet on the coast that serves as a pier for fishing boats resting in its waters.

It is a place to see, paint and photograph. A place to enjoy simply observing its beautiful scenery. Especially at sunset, when the sun begins to hide behind the small houses and its last rays are reflected in its calm waters, the boats are rocked by the gentle waves and everything invites you to stop. To savor the calm that, for a few brief moments, invades everything.
