Nature in Sardinia

Beach

Arutas Beach

Who could resist a shimmering white beach?  This one is made from ground marble and is known locally as the beach of the grains of rice.

Sailing

Cala Gonone

Beautiful pink sands with cliffs and caves to explore by boat.

Windsurfing

Chia Beach

Ideal for windsurfing or a stroll, the pale sands are lapped by turquoise waters and are regularly voted amongst the best in the world. There are lagoons full of pink flamingos close by, too.

Neptunes Grotto

Neptune’s Grotto, Alghero

These impressive mysterious stalactite caves (they’re the ones that hang down) were discovered by chance by a local fisherman in the 18th century and can be reached by land or sea.

Villa Simius

Villasimius

There’s a beach and a saltwater lagoon here.  Grab some lunch in one of the beachside cafes or find somewhere more secluded for a peaceful picnic.

Nature Forest

Torregrande

The pine forests behind this beach provide welcome shade as the temperature rises.

Fishing boats

Porto Pino

This gently shelving beach next to a pretty fishing village is the ideal spot for families.

Porto Conte National Park

Porto Conte National Park

Get your boots on, pack your knapsack and get trekking through miles of rugged countryside, cool forests and hidden bays. Don’t forget your binoculars - it’s great for birdwatching too.

Restaurants

Poetto Beach

This is the longest beach on the island and place to see and be seen.  Grab a place in one of the fashionable bars and restaurants and watch the world go by.
