Cala Sapone is magic, changing its beauty as the sun and wind shift from morning to sunset. Snorkeling along the sides, swimming across the natural pool and having lunch or a aperitivo at Mario e Pinella are our daily routine when we are in Sant'Antioco....More

This beach had a nice combination of rocks and sand. Many of the rock formations were very pretty and seemed to be a magnet for climbers. The sandy portion was very popular. Very clear, blue water. Public parking is up the hill, and some of...More

It looks like a nice bar & trattoria but we regret having seafood at Mario & Pinella's. Both are having stomach problems and it is even overpriced.

The beach is nice during the week. It is a small one. kids can play because it is getting not to deep at the begining. Good for a stop over on your route to st. anticioco or the or the other direction.

This cove by a campsite has a sandy beach at the "end", and two sides of rocky shelves which are great for sunbathing. The car parking is plentiful and free before 1st June and cheap afterwards. Mario and Pinella's beachside café makes it well worth...More

We discovered this cove while driving south from Calasetta. Very scenic with fishing (row) boats. There are flat rocky surfaces where we saw many sunbathers. I'd be weary of swimming due to the number of jellyfish we spotted. There's a very un-Italian looking beach shack/restaurant...More
