Pin It

Alghero has a beautiful long sandy beach, shaded by pine forests. The medieval walled town was invaded by Catalan colonists in the 14th century. As a result, Alghero is a mix of Italian/Catalan - often nicknamed 'Barcelonetta'. Street signs are bilingual. The centre is exciting and buzzy - with lots of restaurants and bars.

Beaches in North Sardinia

The north of Sardinia is an absolutely beautiful destination if you're fond of walking/beaches! Fly into either Olbia or Alghero.

In the north - key beaches of note are: (these are all better value than the exclusive and ultra expensive smereldas!):

Isola Rossa - beautiful beaches -amazing sunsets which turn the landscape red - hence name of area!

Cala Capra - really beautiful little bay

Alghero Beaches

Sun and clean sand and sea are what a lot of people want to see on their travels and this town and its beaches get high marks on those three ‘S’s’. The unspoiled coast here is lined with pine trees which protect the long stretches of sand, the longest being at San Giovanni. As well as beach lovers this coastline is also inviting for divers and sailors.
