Sardinia: the 10 most beautiful beaches
To visit absolutely during your stay
Many of our guests ask me what beaches to visit during their stay. Which are the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia, or which are the best beaches around Olbia and reachable in a few minutes from the Hotel Stefania.
In all honesty I must admit that answering this question is always difficult for me, because fortunately the beaches of Sardinia are practically all wonderful and I am so in love with my land I find it difficult to recommend one rather than another. I often get an impulse response, answering with the first beach that comes to mind at that time for its beauty, and a minute later I call my guest to add that even the next cove is worth a visit, or that five minutes by car could enjoy a glimpse of Caribbean colors or a romantic beach to visit at sunset.
You will understand then that drawing up a ranking of the 10 most beautiful beaches in Sardinia for me is too difficult a task. I therefore limited myself to writing this list of 10 beaches to visit absolutely during a stay in our hotel, and in any case to do so or I had to force myself and exclude some that really deserved to be on the list ... but I had promised myself mention only 10 so as not to go too far, so I will do and I will leave the other beaches for other posts.
Here is the list of my 10 favorite beaches around our Hotel Stefania
1. Pittulongu beach
The beach in front of the Hotel Stefania, is also one of the most beautiful in the area, and I assure you that it is not just me to say but also tens and tens of visitors that every year remain enchanted by the beauty of this wide beach of white and very fine sand, lapped by a sea that slopes gently. Playa di Pittulongu, also known as Puntale Lungo, is a splendid and extended 'crescent' of sand set between the points of Muriscinu and Filiu, on which our hotel overlooks.
2 White Beach in Golfo Aranci
The White Beach is located in the municipality of Golfo Aranci. From the Stefania hotel you can reach the beachl by driving north a few minutes by car and continuing along a off road next to the Spiaggia Bianca residence. Once there, there is a parking (to be paid). To get to the beach you walk a few meters through some sand dunes dotted with wild lilies and the Mediterranean fauna, then you are in front of a sandy white cove, almost dazzling on sunny days. The seabed is low for several meters and the water has colors ranging from blue to turquoise to emerald. Here you can enjoy an enchanting view, at the sight of the Island of Tavolara, of Golfo Aranci and of the whole coast up to Capo Coda Cavallo.
3 Cala Sabina
The beach of Cala Sabina is located along the north coast of the promontory of Capo Figari, also in the municipality of Golfo Aranci in Gallura, in the north-eastern coast of Sardinia.
Cala Sabina is a beach of fine white sand that looks like flour. The beach, about 300 meters wide, is surrounded by dunes covered with junipers and the Mediterranean scrub. The seabed is low for many meters and the color of the water is Caribbean.
The famous Marinella Beach, is located in Porto Rotondo, along the beautiful coast of northern Sardinia, in the province of Olbia Tempio. Reachable from the Hotel Stefania in about 15 minutes by car.
The beach of marinella is one of the widest beachin the area and is fortunate to be sheltered from the wind blowing from the west, one of the predominant wind in the summer. The beach is made up of very fine and very white sand. The seabed is shallow and slopes gently, making this beach particularly suitable for bathing and children's games, while behind it there are all kinds of services from restaurants to water sport establishments.
5. Cala Sassari
Near the White Beach, there is Cala Sassari is another white fine sandy beach not far from the Hotel Stefania. It is a small bay beach, with clear turquoise water and turquoise and equipped with private sunbeds and umbrella.
6. Cala Banana
Another beautiful beach just 5 minutes from our hotel by car. Cala Banana is an almost never too crowded beach. After the Lido di Pittulongu, you will find a junction marked with a Nodu Pianu tourist sign. Follow up to a fork where you have to keep your left. Continue to two small clearings at the side of the road, park and follow the off road that leads to the beach. Cala Banana is a small beach surrounded by the meditteranean nature, lapped by a mirror of crystalline water with a shallow and sandy bottom.
7. Porto Istana
Heading south, past Olbia and the old salt pans, at the northern limit of the protected marine area of ??From the beach set out on the mule track that allows you to climb up to the old traffic light of 1890 of the navy at about 340 meters high to enjoy a breathtaking view. Precisely from this place Guglielmo Marconi in 1932 experimented with sending radio-telegraphic and radiotelephonic signals.
