Stunning beach, difficult to reach and no toilets

Absolutely stunning beach with turquoise blue sea. Great for snorkelling with calm sea and beautiful soft sand. But, very bumpy, rocky sandy footpath from car park to beach (10... read more

I'm not kidding. This is it. If you where asking yourself where to find the best looking beach of Sardinia, or even Europe, Look no further! Not everything is excellent, getting there can be a bit of hassle. But maybe that's good. It prevents to many people getting here I guess. My favorite place is the far most left side... More

Very nice place it's very hard to go there but it worth it. I think that this beach isn't for small kids <3 with stroller. To go there is difficult. I snorkeling there but I will need deeper place there are but I was scared with the traffic of the boats. But I recommend this beach like carribean beach.

We reached this beach early in the morning around 6 AM, because we wanted to see the sunrise, and wanted to do snorkelling. After reading some blogs, we decided to go to this particular beach for snorkelling, but no we were not satisfied. It is dirty, there were lot of polythene bags in the water, and all sort of rubbish.... More

This was the first beach I visited in Sardinia. I have seen all the pictures in Google before, but on my own eyes it looked much more better. It is neccessary to walk for a while from parking place (I have absolutely no idea why the Sardinians think that for van/furgon I shall pay same price as for campervan ->... More

Absolutely stunning beach with turquoise blue sea. Great for snorkelling with calm sea and beautiful soft sand. But, very bumpy, rocky sandy footpath from car park to beach (10 minute walk) - quite precarious in parts for younger/older visitors. The sunbeds were the most expensive we've found all holiday at €15 euros and no toilet facilities at all on the... More

Okay, its my own fault for going to sardinia in August. I know this! However this beach was horrendous. Now it is of course an absolutely stunning beach, that is beyond any doubt. Its just that once you dump 1000 other people on to it then it kind of loses that charm. If you like crowded beaches then its one... More

So having been in Sardinia now for a week we know that we need to get to the beach by 9.30 am.. Otherwise the carparks get full as do the beaches. We managed to park okay there is a surprisingly large carpark for this beach.. It costs €7.50 for the day or €1.50 per hour There is one major path... More

This is where the prince, The Agah Khan himself that is, first set foot to this Island in the early 60s when he was mooring outside with his huge yacht. This is back to the roots where it all began. A very charming beach hard to reach and sometimes overcrowded but well worth the visit. Sweet little cove tucked away... More
