Easy, well-marked route from Macinaggio. 300m ascent but nothing difficult.
Walk along the 1st beach, then climb northeast, down to the tamarind beach and on to the ruins of the Santa Maria tower, formerly submerged, and just beyond, the splendid calas Genovese and Francese.
Further on, the path cuts slightly inland with a short climb through the scrubland, before descending towards the sea and overlooking the Genoese tower of Agnellu, which is finally reached via a fairly steep path. Beautiful views of the coast from the south and north. Continue along the coast to quickly reach the beach and the village of Barcaggio.
It is possible to continue along the path to complete the north cape and end up in Centuri (see map).
By hitchhiking or taking the return boat to Macinaggio.
