On the Costa Verde, also known as the silent coast or the Italian Sahara, this beach is one of the wildest along these magical, deserted shores. Abandoned and ancient mining communities and 2km wide dunes lend it an eerie quality, completely under-developed compared with the Costa Smeralda. Come here for intense starlit nights and long, often windy, romantic walks.

Piscinas Beach

Halfway down Sardinia's glorious Costa Verde, near Montevecchio, lies Piscinas Beach, a vast tract of undulating sand dunes constantly re-sculpted by the Mistral. It's spectacular and peaceful, but there's a strong undertow and the water deepens quickly as you move away from the shore, so swimming is risky.
