The cliffs of the Conero
In Sirolo, in what is considered the pearl of the Riviera del Conero, Velare beach is found, also known as the Spiaggia Le Due Sorelle because it is shut off to the north by two twin stacks. This is a stretch of gravelly coastline with white pebbles and rocky spurs, whose origins are shrouded in legend. It is said that in its waters an enchanting mermaid lived, who attracted sailors to the Cave of the Slaves with her song, to imprison them forever. To help her, it is said that there was a sea demon, transformed by the gods into a rock broken into two parts: the two stacks.
It was once accessible by land through the impassable Passo del Lupo, now blocked off. Now, you can reach it by sea with ferries, boats, inflatable boats or canoes. From the coast, you can come to it between the Spiaggia dei Sassi Neri and the Spiaggia della Cava Davanzali.
The beauty of the beach lies in its unspoiled nature and the absence of services, which guarantee total silence and privacy. For diving enthusiasts, the remains of a merchant ship that sank here in 1962 can be seen.
