The wilder stretch of coastline between Acciaroli and Pioppi is where you'll find rocky coves and no crowds. This is part of Pollica, the town that also covers Pioppi. While you can hire a boat to get you to the unaccessible coves, the area most people refer to as Pollica Beach is just to the north of Pioppi. Walk along the cobbled waterfront promenade to reach a small and less-known pebble beach, where you'll find no umbrellas or distractions, just a little corner of beach with clear water and some tranquil sunbathing.
