In October not too crowded. We enjoyed plenty of space to ourselves, nice clear water. One cafe still open. Best thing we found to do around Olbia. Very relaxing.

Sand, beach, blue sea and a view on Isola Tavolara... relax sit back and enjoy. Large parking area not far away. We were here in May and we had the beach almost to ourselves. Superb

If you go on the weekend there is almost no place to lay down, but very nice beach with sand bottom (most beaches have stoney sea ground). Boat rides are available.

First time In Sardinia. First beach we came to. Parked up the street so did not have to pay for parking. The beach itself is quite narrow and very busy but that did not bother us. The sea is so clear!

Hi, the beach is at the opposite side of the side from the Club Elite, you have to drive to Murta Maria and then turn left following Porto Istana beach. You can get there in 30mins max.
