  • The Gulf of Mirabello is as beautiful as its name says, water blue and enter can be far away because it is shallow over 200 m. I recommend hotel Miramare from every window views of the Bay.

  • Our hotel over looked Mirabello Bay, I often work early and sat watching the fishermen going to work, plenty of coming and going there.
