Prisoner’s Beach

The Prisoner beach is located in the Circeo promontory, in the municipality of San Felice Circeo, inside the Circeo National Park, on the southern coast of Lazio. This beach owes its name to the history according to which during the Second World War a prisoner took refuge in this cove, and hid in the adjacent sheltered and secret cave. This cave has two floors, the upper floor is reached by a small staircase with a balcony overlooking the sea, and has been furnished over time with the resulting materials brought by storms, also because in case of too intense storms or damaging the inhabitants of the place they take care of its restoration. The Prisoner's beach is actually a cove, with white and polished pebbles, transparent and very clean water, so much so that over the years it has earned the coveted Blue Flag banner. To the right of the cove there is a small shady and cool shelter, to enjoy the panorama of the uncontaminated sea and the blue and little frequented sea, even in the summer months. The only slightly annoying note is the large number of boats of all types that decide to anchor in front of this beach. The seabed is beautiful, full of underground rocks and wonderful submerged caves, and therefore much loved by scuba diving and snorkeling enthusiasts. The Prisoner beach can only be reached by sea, by boat, or by canoe, which can be rented at the dock of the nearby Lake Paola . The distance to paddle is not much and the excursion can also be practiced by beginners of this sport. When stopping at the Prisoner Beach, always be very careful, as the area is at risk of landslides. The Prisoner's beach has no service, but, being a natural oasis, it is certainly worth a visit.
