Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways“. Oscar Wilde

The sea in Toroni has this blue – turquoise color and these crystal waters that can please anyone. It is not a coincidence that its 2.5 km long curved beach is awarded with the Blue Flag many times and for 2013. The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded to more than 3850 beaches and marinas in 48 countries all over the world.
