This place was beautiful but way to over crowded! There where people everywhere and you couldn't find a good sit spot without getting a ton of sand all over you, The water is crystal clear and you could probably walk 100m out knee high. Overall Skip this place on the weekends and try to go here when everyone's working.

We took the beach bus from Alghero to this beach, it only took us 15 minutes. It is a very nice beach with cristal clear water, very calm and ideal for small children. We were here in september, when the crowds were already gone, it was great!

Much nicer than the beach closest to the town centre. Worth the 25min walk! La Bombarda Beach - need a bike to get there (10 Euro for the day) is still the best!

Beautiful beach, the water was clear and sand soft. There was few small restaurants for snacks. Also sunbeds for rent.

It's not quite the Caribbean but considering its a little over 2 hours from Stansted it's pretty damn good ! The water is warm after that initial shock and you can walk out a fair way before you can't touch the bottom. Unfortunately if your staying in the town centre it's a bit of a trek to this end of...

Beautiful, clean beach with white and soft sand. On the downside: Persistant and rude vendors distribution you constantly, egen when you have payed for a sunbed on a private part of the beach.

Very nice sandy beach with clear water. Availability of bars and restaurants directly on the beach. The beach is separated from the street by a nice typical "pineta".
