I adored this beach. The sea is crystal clear and of a wonderful turquoise, and the little, rice like sand is magical. It is a small piece of heaven. I had the impression that even the fish I saw while snorkeling were friendly here :)...More

Perfect wide beach, with white sand. Beautyfull area with a good surf training center. Important: you have to pay for parking only in the front street. Other, smaller streets are for free!

Nice beach a few km form Cabras and Riola Sardo. Wild as most of the Sinis beaches, sometimes windy.

Drove two hours from the east coast to Is Arutas, well worth the trip. Beautiful white beach and crystal clear water. A bit crowded, but that is understandable, the beach is great. Parking fee at the parking lots, only cash no credit cards. There are...More

Just a place you have to visit at least once in your life. This was my 3 time and I'm still in love with this beautiful beach.

Trying your luck on well known beaches in July is asking for trouble. Hence our pleasant surprise too find that the beach was admittedly crowded, but parking was still easily accessible and we had enough space to lie out and let the kids roam. The...More
