A breath taking view named after the extraordinary particularity of the porphyry cliffs that rise from the sea. The Red Rocks Bay opens to the east of the Arbatax port, a tourist neighbourhood of Tortolì, with a background of white rocks and tall red granite boulders that give this place a unique and fascinating look. Their reflection give the water an ever changing colour around emerald green. This is where the final scene of cult film by Lina Wertmüller, Swept Away (1974), was shot. The overall combination is unique in the world, although other red porphyry cliffs dot the Ogliastra coast, such as is Scoglius Arrubius, two stacks twenty metres tall, symbol of the magnificent Cea beach, a few kilometres to the south.
