Sottotorre beach is located in the south-west of Sardinia, on the island of Sant'Antioco and on the southern outskirts of the town of Calasetta, just below the 18th-century Piedmontese coastal tower of the same name. Savoy Tower, which recalls the presence of the Ligurian community on the island of Sant'Antioco and San Pietro, coming from Tabarca, a Tunisian African islet, where the Ligurians moved in the first half of the 16th century. Later, in 1738, their descendants settled in Carloforte thanks to the interest of the Savoy family. The population of Calasetta speaks Tabarchino (a variant of the Ligurian language), as also in Carloforte on the nearby island of San Pietro.

It is not a very large beach, but its uniqueness lies not only in its strategic location, but also in the large dunes behind it, covered with majestic, centuries-old junipers that provide shade and rest in the middle of the day. The beach is made up of fine, light-coloured sand, but with grey tones due to the volcanic rocks that surround it on both sides: some of these, on the left of the beach, are less jagged and flatter so that you can sunbathe freely. The beach is beautiful as is the sea, clear and clean, suitable for snorkelling enthusiasts.
