Crystal clear waters and lots of nature: get to know the most beautiful beaches of the paradisiacal Italian Island: Sardinia!
Although still little explored by tourists, the island of Sardinia brings together everything a tourist can want: practically deserted beaches, exuberant nature – in and out of water – and really impressive shades of blue coloring the sea. Located to the west of Italy, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea , the island is 250 km from Rome departing from Olbia , the closest town to its coast.
With such beauty, it is very difficult to choose the best beaches of such a luxuriant place, but it follows a list of those that you can not risk to leave unchecked in your trip.
Crystalline and shallow waters alongside weather-shaped rocks form a veritable scenic setting in the Mediterranean. Cala Goloritze is considered one of the most beautiful beaches to know in Sardinia and has become a real postcard of the region.
The access can be made by a trail of about an hour or by means of boats without motor that stops to 300 meters of the beach, causing the tourists to have to dive and to swim until the small strip of sand. Let’s agree that playing in these incredible waters is no effort at all, right?
Do not be fooled by a relatively narrow strip of sand, Cala Coticcio beach will provide one of the most incredible visuals of your life: an incredibly blue sea, clean waters and many colorful fish.
Like all paradise, access is not so easy: it takes 40 minutes for a trail with many climbs and descents or take a boat trip from Porto Cervo or the Port of Palau, both on the Emerald Coast of Sardinia. Needless to say, all the effort is offset by a breathtaking look, right?
To the north west of Sardinia is La Pelosa , one of the most famous beaches on the island. And the fame can be quickly understood when what you see is a wonderful setting with waters that mix various turquoise tones. In the middle of the blue expanse, an old tower, where a prison functioned, leaves the atmosphere even more surprising. As one of Sardinia’s most popular beaches, be prepared to compete in this paradise with other people to secure your spot, especially during the high season.
Spiaggia del Principe
Praia do Príncipe , also known as Portu Li Coggi , is one of the best beaches on the Costa Smeralda . Located near the small village of Cala di Volpe , access is carried out by a brief 10-minute walk through the rocks. The incredibly white sand beach and crystal clear waters is paradise for those who enjoy snorkeling.
A sea that looks more like a painting in shades of blue already attracts attention, but Cala Mariolu keeps even more beauty beyond the surface. A true underwater paradise can be explored on a dive offered by local instructors.
In the depths of its waters it is possible to observe the habitat of several species and, with luck, to see even dolphins swimming in free life. Along the way, caves, tunnels and bays complete the landscape.
Spiaggia La Cinta
La Cinta Beach , located in the northeast of Sardinia , is one of the most popular on the island. With a stunning look, it is ideal for families with children, since its waters remain shallow in the first few meters. With a blue sea and white sand, it is possible to rent beach chairs for sunbathing, as well as pedal boats, as a narrow strip of sand separates the beach from the lagoon Stragno di San Teodoro . La Cinta is also a great place to practice windsurfing and kitesurfing.
Cala Luna , one of the wonderful beaches of the eastern coast of Sardinia, has a peculiar look that gathers calcareous cliffs and exuberant vegetation. The beach is only 3km away from the amazing Bue Marino Caves , so it is worth to combine a boat trip to get to know its stalactites, stalagmites and rock engravings. Isolated, access to Cala Luna is only possible by a 4km walk from its neighboring Cala Fuili or by boat, from the Cala Gonone marina .
Want a little more privacy and comfort to enjoy the paradisiacal scenery of Sardinia? Carla Pitrizza is a private beach belonging to the sophisticated 5 star hotel Pitrizza . Within only 80 meters of distance, it offers crystalline blue waters and beautiful natural scenery next to the structure of the luxurious property.
