Soak up the sun at Sardinia’s most famous attraction: the beach. Choose from secluded, quiet stretches of sand or vibrant, social beach scenes.

Spiaggia del Lido di San Giovanni: just a few steps from the hotel, the shallow water is great for kids, and the sand is the perfect place to relax and admire the turquoise sea.

Spiaggia del Lazzaretto: this beach is one of the Alghero area’s most famous. Expect some crowds during the summer, but the spacious sand has room for everybody. Chair and umbrella rentals are available, and the beach is lined with cafes, restaurants, and bars, so you can easily spend all day there.

Spiaggia di Mugoni: On the edge of the Regional Natural Park of Porto Conte, this beach is possibly the most beautiful in the area. Make the scenic 20-minute drive to this tranquil oasis and feel as if you’ve been whisked to tropical paradise. Since this beach is situated within Porto Conte Bay, the water is calm, and fragrant pine and eucalyptus trees line the beach.

Spiaggia delle Bombarde: Likely the area’s most well-known beach, Le Bombarde is famous for a reason. The sparkling water is crystal-clear in shallow areas and a stunning shade of turquoise from afar. At Le Bombarde, all of the beach amenities are available, from restaurants to watersports rentals and tours, including scuba diving and windsurfing.

Spiaggia di Balai: only 45 minutes drive, find soft sand, beautiful water, and some of the island’s best snorkeling here.
