Here, like in Porto Ferro, there is an old watch tower and from the parking area you have the opportunity to walk on several paths admiring the nature, the sea view and reach also the beautiful Cala Viola. A nice place not just for sunbathing and swimming but also for discovering beautiful places.

The climb up to the tower is well worth it. We didn't swim in the sea there because it was full of seaweed.

It is great to visit the many towers around the old town of Alghero and some of them are open (one as a bookstore/information desk and another hosts shows of some sort.) The towers themselves are good landmarks also just in case you can't remember where you are just keep in mind where the towers are and you wont go... More

It's quite difficult to descend to this beach because it doesn't exist a normal way. It has a nice cliff to walk in... But I strongly recommend to go there. A nice view surrounded by weathered granite walls.

We went here early evening and watched a sunset across the cove. Fantastic views on the ridges over the coastline and a very rugged feel. Early evening was quiet and the sea was still warm for a swim. The cove was choppy when we went but still swimmable.
