The best beaches in Sardinia

Sardinia is the best Mediterranean island especially if you like to chill on the beach. With almost 2000km of coastline, there will be something for everyone: uncrowded beaches, but also large crowded beaches, romantic coves, brilliant blue beaches in the Maddalena archipelago, small fishes to admire in the water, cliff jumps, etc.

In almost 25 days in Sardinia (10 days in the North and 15 days in the South), I tested a lot of beaches: more than twenty 😉 I am not pretending to have seen it all but I can give you a glimpse of the beaches of Sardinia and my favorites.

Pelosa Beach in the Northwest

The Pelosa is the best beach (but also one of the most crowded)! And you will read this truth in travel guides. I invite you to check this by yourselves and give me your feedback 😉 To park, we walked along the road towards Capo Falcone and Torre of Pelosa, going up the road, to find a parking spot. The price is reasonable: 1 € per hour. Very close to the tower, you will find the beach of Pelosetta, the extension of Pelosa beach. This is paradise! Playing elbows to have a place with your parasol, it’s worth being patient to enjoy a fantastic lagoon.

The incredible beaches of the Maddalena archipelago

Cala Corsara on the island of Spargi

On the south coast of Spargi Island in the Maddalena Natural Park you will find the Cala Corsara. There is only one way to get to this place: boat! There are 4 beaches that follow one another: the boats drop you on a beach where there will be plenty of folks, if you want to avoid the crowd you should climb a little through the granite rocks and you will reach a new cove. You can now relax 😉

Put your snorkeling mask and enjoy a turquoise water.

Porto Palma beach on Caprera Island

It is with pleasure that we discovered the little beach of Porto Palma on the south coast of the Caprera. As you can see below, the water is translucent.

The coves of Golfo di Orosei

Cala Luna

Another place where you do not feel alone! You can come here by walk (but it seems to me that it is the easiest way) or by boat from Cala Gonone. Cala Luna is located at the bottom of large white limestone cliffs which also form caves. The beach is small but it is a nice entry to start your journey in the Golfo di Orosei.

Cala Mariolu

My absolute favorite ♥ for this beach where we came on a zodiac during a day out. We had a picnic lunch, with not many people, under our parasol and we spent some fantastic hours in a real P-A-R-A-D-I-S-E.

The beautiful beaches of the South

Spiaggia Su Giudeu in Chia

The beaches of Chia are all splendid: « Campana », « Su Giudeu » (above in photo – famous for surfing), « Cala Cipolla », etc. The beach of Su Giudeu is very large with a very clear water.

Spiaggia de Tuerredda

You will have to pay here the parking. You will find a restaurant and bars. Considered as one of the most beautiful beach in Sardinia, surrounded by vegetation, it is often crowded in summer.

Spiaggia di Piscinnì

Not to be confused with the Spiaggia di Piscinas (which I speak to you below). This beach was one of my favorite ♥: few people in July and a great place to snorkel. It is simply a pool with small fishes. Magic !

Spiaggia di Piscinas

This wild beach is a must do! But the road to the Spiaggia di Piscinas is long and winding. Plan your picnic and stay for a few hours. We come here to enjoy this huge beach lined with high dunes and vegetation. This beach is close to  Arbus city, an ancient mining town and you will see on the roadside many uninhabited houses.

Other beautiful beaches:

  • Cala Brandichini, called « Little Tahiti », I did not mention it earlier because the water was unclear… and the parking is very expensive (2.5 € per hour )
  • In Capo Testa you can find nice coves by walking.

ENJOY !
