The bright, light orange color of the sand at Porto Ferro is a result of crushed shells, volcanic deposits and limestone. The clear blue waters of the shore, as well as the green trees surrounding it, serve to make the color stand out even more. Visitors can get a breathtaking view from the 65-foot-high sand dunes that lie behind the beach.
