Your're not alone on this beach, and my personal space-sone to strangers totally changed after a couple of days. Nevertheless we liked this beach a lot, the water and sand is really nice. The sellers are not very pushy, and I'm sure we'll miss the coco seller with his funny songs. This is not the quiet, romantic beach from your... More

lovely clean sand and crystal clear waters. Very crowded in August, but managed to find a place! Sea is lovely - great temperature for swimming in - and remained fairly shallow quite a way out.

Great beach, clean cool,waters, tree lined sand dunes, much choice of bars and cafés. Choice of paying non paying. Gets a little busy but only once was it heaving. Think nothing of spending 8 hours there. And I don't like beaches!!!!

About 10 mins in a taxi or there are many buses that you can catch from Alghero. Is a lovely quiet white sandy beach with a very small beach bar. We found a spot after he pineforest. If you wish to rock up with your family with your own umbrellas and picnic this is the one for you!

Maria Pia Beach is fantastic city beach. White sand, turquise water, close to everywhere in the city. Really warm water and lovely breeze make this beach perfect place if you dont want to move from Alghero. Very safe for kids, as well. Strongly recommend if You have no car rented and dont want to explore Sardinia island.

Lovely beach, makes town beach look really second rate. A 10 euro taxi trip from town but well worth it. We walked back and it took about 25 mins.

Nice white sandy beach, popular place for the locals and tourists, water clear, could see fish swimming around! Apart from the usual beach umbrellas and sun loungers, you could find a quieter area further along the beach. Adequate food and drink areas nearby.
