COASTS

Spiaggia Rena Bianca, Santa Teresa Gallura

The beach, named after the homonymous location, is characterized by a white and very fine sand. The sea bottom is shallow and visible to the naked eye. On the outskirts of the small bay, the colors of Mediterranean scrub enhance the shimmering shades of the sea. The site, endowed with services, is recognized by the FEE - Foundation for Environmental Education - since 1987 with the award of the Blue Flag of Europe for quality of water and coast, presence of services, security measures and environmental education, is easily reachable from the residential area of Santa Teresa, thanks to a staircase. From Rena Bianca you can see the coast of Corsica, its white crags, and the city of Bonifacio. Its position also allows you to see the Archipelago of La Maddalena. In the surrounding area you can visit a sighting tower of five hundred, two islets (Munica and Munichedda) within walking distance and, not too far away, an abandoned granite quarry. The welcome is guaranteed by a large car park, bar, restaurant an hotel, and facilities for beach services.

The characteristics of this beach are the dunes, the pine grove and the sand, white and thin, which enhances the turquoise color of the water. The locals nicknamed it Tahiti. The sea botto, thanks to the transparency of the water, can be seen with a naked eye.

Spiaggia Porto Giunco, Villasimius

The Porto Giunco beach - a long, sandy strip - separates the Notteri pond from the sea. That\'s why it is called Beach of the Two Marines. Nearby, at the end of the beach, there is a promontory with a watermill tower, about 50 meters high. The clearness of the waters allows you to see the rocky sea bottom with the naked eye, with its slightly rose sand, for granite residues, due to the erosion of atmospheric agents.

Turquoise and crystalline water gives the Pelosa beach a tropical appearance. Thanks to the transparency of the water, the sea bottom is visible even without the use of an underwater mask. In some places, Mediterranean vegetation lays the beach. The tower on the islet in front of the beach is a Spanish fortification. Not far from the coast you can see the Isola Piana and the Asinara, today a national park.

On the Sinis Peninsula extends the seaside resort of San Giovanni. Once, San Giovanni di Sinis was famous for the characteristics of fishermen\'s shacks. The presence of the Thracian Punic ruins, the Spanish tower of San Giovanni, together with the fishermen\'s cabins and the beautiful vegetation, make this area a special tourist destination in every time of the year.

The white sand dunes are the most important feature of Porto Pino Beach; They can reach up to 30 meters in height. Just before the coast you can see the two main ponds that make up the wetland of Sant\'Anna Arresi: Maestrale and Is Brebeis. Here, you can see Italian knights, cormorants, mules and even flamingos. Continuing along the coast you arrive at the promontory of Porto Pino, a large area with a pine forest of about 90 hectares, within which, often hidden by the vegetation, are the homes of the holidaymakers.

Capo Pecora is a small promontory on the southwest coast of Sardinia, the Costa Verde. It is characterized by granite cliffs overlooking the sea and small beaches with pebbles and granite boulders polished by the sea. The vegetation is low and bushy, typical of the Mediterranean. Sea water, as in most of the island, is clear and transparent, and allows you to clearly see the rocky sea bottom and the rich marine flora.

Cala Mariolu, Baunei

Cala Mariolu is one of the most impressive resorts of the Gulf of Orosei. Rich in rocks and natural caves (noteworthy is the Cave Grotto, once inhabited by the monk seal) is characterized by the wide beaches consisting of small, slightly pinkish pebbles. The sea bottom is perfectly visible thanks to its crystalline water.

The beach of Cala Luna is characterized by the numerous caves and the river flowing through the beach. When in summer the river does not drain into the sea, it forms a pond with beautiful oleanders. The sea is separated from the pond by a strip of sand. It can be reached by sea but also by land, along the paths that cross the unspoilt mediterranean scrub.

BATH HOUSES

Stabilimento balneare, Sorso

Located about ten kilometers north of Sassari, in the center of a circle of olive groves and vineyards, Sorso is part of the northwestern part of the Sassarese. The country is only a few minutes from the sea, and the coastal stretch is sandy and rich in dunes, with a thick vegetation of pines, junipers and dwarf palms; In addition, there is the pond of Platamona, rich in rare ornithological species. The origins of Sorso are ancient: in prehistoric and nuragic times its territory was certainly inhabited as evidenced by numerous archaeological sites of considerable interest, including the ruins of some nuraghes as well as the sacred well of Serra Niedda. In Roman times there was the villa of \"Santa Filiddiga\", near the sea, which was inhabited even in vandal and Byzantine times. In the Judicial Period, the country became part of the Giudicato di Torres. The old town of Sorso, a medieval site called Bicocca, is articulated in courtyards with simple architecture houses built with limestone tuff from the quarries of the area. At the culmination of the main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, stands the Parish of San Pantaleo, named after the patron saint of the village, built in 1836.

Stabilimento balneare di Pistis, Arbus

Seaside resort just a few meters away from the waters of Pistis, a location nestled in the beautiful western coast of Sardinia in the Costa Verde. Noteworthy are the basalt cliffs and the crystalline sea, which with the white sand and the dunes create quite impressive views.

Spiaggia di Piscinas, Arbus

Situated in an isolated area of great natural beauty, Piscinas Beach, along the greenery of the Costa Verde, is surrounded by spectacular dunes (among the highest in Europe), still alive and shaped by the Maestrale. It is an ideal environment for long walk, especially in the early hours of the morning, offering the possibility to see the deers going to the sea and, in June, the sea turtles laying their eggs. At 200 meters from the shore you can observe, in an unusual and highly suggestive marine landscape, traces of the wreck of an English ship that, loaded with lead and armed with a cannon, rests in the sand since a few hundred years. The beach of Piscinas, like most of those on the west coast of Sardinia, where the sea is rarely calm, is one of the favorite sites of surfers.
