Such a pretty pine grove by the beach

This is a very accessible beach starting with a refreshing, brief aromatic walk in the pine grove toward a pretty beach.

Not my favourite one in Sardignia but still offers super white sandy beach and clear blue water excellent for snorkelling :) You can go by bike from the city centre ~15-20min since there is a bike lane all the way there.

I love a beach as good as this so close to a charming historic town. You can rent sunlounges or just put your towel on clean white sand. You can have a snack at a nearby cafe or bring a picnic. If you've forgotten your hat or your sarong, a polite African gentlemen will turn up with something to sell... More

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.

If you would like to have a beach with sand dunes near Alghero this is the place for you. It’s easy to find a place for you own and away from the wind behind the dunes. The beach looks very clean not only at the waterfront.

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...
