Beaches in SardiniaEdit This
Sardinia is a magical Italian island with long sandy coasts, clear, turquoise water, stunning rocky coves, and inland lakes to be enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. Here are just a few of the fabulous beaches to be discovered in Sardinia.
Portobello and Pula
On the northern coast of Sardinia, called Portobello, there are some spectacular beaches, particularly for families with kids of all ages. Rena Majori beach is a huge, white stretch of fine sand with clear blue water lapping the shoreline. Even at times of year with the most tourists, this beach is not crowded. You can feel free to spread out and enjoy the space, the fresh air, and the view. Sunbathing, sand castle building, wading, and swimming are just a few of the excellent Rena Majori activities. Vignola Beach is also a great bet for families. The water is calm, safe, and clear, perfect for young children to wade in and explore.
Pula is a very historic coast. Roman ruins, Spanish watchtowers and an amphitheater are just a few of the archaeological wonders to be found there. The historical significance of the area only adds to the already woundrous natural beauty of the white sand beaches. There are plenty of beaches for sunbathing, swimming, windsurfing, and more.
One of the most well known Sardinian coasts, Costa Rei is located in the southeastern part of the island. There are many tiny islets off of this coast that are fun to explore. The water is a translucent turquoise, as it is on basically every beach on Sardinia, and the coast is connected to a lake system around which many rare birds can be observed. Apart from the wide, family friendly, white sand beaches, there are also rocky shorelines that make up Costa Rei, and many visitors go to the area simply to check out the interesting rock formations made by Mother Nature, herself. There are windsurfing rentals in the area as well as a nice diving center.
Some of the island´s most beautiful beaches are located in the village of Villasimius. Spiaggia di Porto Giunco is a gorgeous beach in the town with calm, crystal clear waters, and plenty of spectacular seascapes, especially around sunset. Cala Pira Bay is in Villasimius as well, and it is the perfect place to get in the warm water and swim.
