Bagnoschiuma, Antignano, is a "spiaggia attrezzata" which means there is no charge to access the beach, but there are sunbeds and umbrellas for hire if you need them. Big pebbles and uncomfortable access to the sea if you don't have plastic sandals with you, but clean water and great sunsets! Road-side parking or parking area on the other side of the road, next to the cemetery. A short walk down to the beach along a rough path.
Via del Littorale 210 (opposite the cemetery)
