Sardinia offers some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean with a spectacular number of white sandy beaches and crystal-clear emerald water. The beaches in Sardinia are incredibly clean and whether you are in a secluded bay or close to a town, the beaches are of a high standard and the quality of water is generally extremely high. Watersports and diving facilities are widely available on most coasts during the summer.
The nearest beaches to the apartment are Lu Bagnu and the acclaimed beaches of Valledoria, however the beautiful beaches of Isola Rossa and Badesi Mare are only a short drive away.
To the north of Cannigione and Laconia you will find lots of sandy coves. Tanca Manna sits approximately 250 metres from the road behind a saltwater lake. It has a great stretch of sand and plenty of facilities for families. A kilometre beyond Tanca Manna is Barca Bruciata, a small sandy beach which is quiet with no facilities.
Cala Capra beach just beyond Golfo delle Saline is a pretty sandy bay tucked beneath the impressive Capo D’Orso headland.
The Capriccioli headland has five beautiful small sandy beaches. There are facilities for boat hire and also a bar close to the beach. These beaches, including La Celvia, are amongst the most popular in the area.
Just before the Hotel Cala di Volpe is the beautiful Liscia Ruia, an extensive sweep of white sand set down a long unsurfaced road.
Rather off the beaten track is the Spiaggia del Principe which cannot be reached by car. The last stretch has to be done on foot takes under 10 minutes and is well worth the effort. Piccolo Pevero is a small sandy beach with parasol and boat hire. It also has a restaurant (“Il Pulcino”) and a bar.
The Pitrizza beach at Liscia di Vacca just north of Porto Cervo is also popular.
Alghero and North Coast
The Maria Pia beach, still in Alghero is a beautiful sandy bay backed by pinewoods although there are far nicer beaches further along the coast. On the way to Porto Conte, just past Fertilia, try the beaches of Lazzaretto with superb views across to Capo Caccia and Le Bombarde, a strip of pure white sand bordered by crystal clear sea - these beaches are extremely busy in high season and it is recommended that you visit these beaches during quieter periods. Beyond the headland of Capo Caccia there is a lovely long beach at Porto Ferro. Stintino, the north-western point of the island, has some fantastic beaches, including the almost tropical La Pelosa.
