Just off a small beach in Palau, Admiral Nelson, aboard his Victory, awaited the movements of the enemy French fleet for a long time. When the fleet set sail from Toulon to meet him in this area, a chase began, ending in the historic battle of Trafalgar. Even though the echoes of the events of the imperial fleets are distant in time, that inlet, protagonist of naval battles, , reminds us of the hospitality shown to the English commander and it is named after him. Nelson’s beach is a quiet, sheltered arch-shaped expanse of sand about 80 metres long, nestled between granite cliffs and with lush Mediterranean greenery behind it that almost reaches the shore. A captivating landscape stands out in front of it and, from the turquoise sea reflecting shades of emerald green, the western outline of the island of Santo Stefano appears on the horizon.
