The 10 best beaches in Northern Sardinia

We take you to discover the most beautiful places on the coast of Northern Sardinia.

The Sardinian beaches that we have chosen for our blog are perfect for all types of travellers: from the lover of privacy to those looking for fun, passing through families with children in tow and solo explorers looking for total relaxation.
Long coasts of white dunes, coves sheltered by pine forests and juniper bushes, sandy beaches with unbelievable shades of pink. And everywhere, a clear sea encompassing all the different shades of blue.

Here is our short guide to the most beautiful beaches in Northern Sardinia:
La Pelosa (Stintino)
Without doubt, La Pelosa is the most famous beach in Northern Sardinia. Turquoise waters, pale blue, white and soft sand like talcum powder.

When you arrive in Stintino you appear to have landed on some distant and exotic Caribbean island.

But be warned, as of 2020, the beach has a limited number of visitors and to visit it you have to book your place using the app.
2. Ezzi Manu (Stintino)
The perfect destination for those looking for isolated but evocative areas. Near Stintino, there is the Ezzi Mannu beach with small white pebbles and a turquoise, clean sea.

Surrounded by dunes, covered with vegetation, this place is immersed in a naturalistic context of undoubtedly wild and solitary charm.
3. Porto Ferro (Alghero)

About 30 minutes from Alghero is this beautiful wild bay, a paradise for surf lovers. The sand slopes gently into the crystal clear water.

At the bottom of the beach, there is a Saracen tower and an old fortification dating back to the Second World War.

4. Li Cossi (Costa Paradiso)

In Gallura, you will find this beautiful, super-romantic bay hidden among the pink granite rocks: one of the most beautiful and fascinating beaches in northern Sardinia.

It can be reached by a natural and panoramic path with breathtaking views.

The whole area is famous among lovers of scuba diving and snorkelling.

5. La Marinedda (Isola Rossa)

It is a sought-after destination for surfers, as well as hosting an international surf contest every year in August.

A beautiful bay with white sand dunes surrounded by red granite cliffs.

The beach offers numerous services, including rental of sunbeds and umbrellas, bars and restaurants.

6. Monti Russu (Vignola Mare)

A somewhat isolated beach and therefore less frequently visited. A paradise for those seeking relaxation and tranquillity.

The only small problem is parking because there are few spaces available nearby.

7. Naraccu Nieddu (Aglientu)

Also called Lu Litarroni, it is a beautiful wild beach and is reached by a path through a large pine forest.

There is a nice little kiosk on the beach with tables and hammocks beneath the pine forest.

This very long beach is truly for everyone. The beach also has a space for nudists and is also dog-friendly.

8. Rena di Ponente (Capo Testa)

This is a long sandy beach sheltered from the wind and characterised by fine white sand.It offers a super-clear sea with iridescent colours ranging from turquoise to blue and emerald green.

The water slopes gently and it is a superb beach for bathing children and for those who enjoy long, relaxing walks along the shore.

9. Cala Brandinchi (Olbia)

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in North Sardinia, a real natural saltwater pool with the colours of Caribbean beaches.

Not to be missed, because it is absolutely worth it. The only downside, if you want to call it that, is that it is almost always crowded.

10. Cala Corsara (Arcipelago della Maddalena, Isola Spargi)

It can only be reached by sea in a rubber dinghy or by a tourist boat. A magical place surrounded by granite rocks and a thousand shades of the sea.
