One the very best beaches in Sardinia, definitely worth the visit, but you need to think in advance. Book a visit one week in advance, buy a straw mat in supermarkets to save the money (even if you won't use it) and prepare to pay €30 for double bed with umbrella. Parking is brutal if come late and then a long walk to the beach. The beach is crowded, but there is a limit of 1500 people - that is why advance booking is needed. If all that does not put you away you will be rewarded with turquoise water, white sand and perfect photos. Beach bars accept cash only, but there are few restaurants with fantastic views on the surrounding hills overlooking Pelosa beach.

It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia. But it can be very crowded. Visitors have to reserve well in advance during peak season. Parks fill so better to go early in the morning or take a taxi / shuttle bus.

The beach is small but fabulous and the water clearer than a swimming pool. Astonishing! You should reserve a spot for the price of 3.50 Euros per person. I didn't know in advance but I could immediately buy the entrance online. This makes you eligible to use showers and toilets which are very useful. I also appreciated the smoking area.

Extremely massive and crowded beach.
It seems that you have to make a reservation online and pay and entrance fee + the parking (2 or 3 euros per hour). There are also many restaurants on the beach and almost everything was covered by umbrellas and sunbeds.
Water is nice and all but this beach is just too massive for me.

Hi everyone, i've been in Sardinia since when i was 2 years old and i do love that place, but...... La Pelosa beach is crazy beautiful, the water's colors are breathtaking but I had a really bad surprise one week ago when i went there.. you must pay 3,50 euro each person if you want to walk on La pelosa's sand, and if you want to hang over there you must have a straw mat under your beach towel (you can easily buy it over there for about 15 euro).
plus you have to pay the parking.
well..that would be 18,50 euro just to hang out there, plus the parking cost, ( let's say about 6 euro)...honestly it is not right that we have to pay so much money just to hang out on a public beach.. i was with my boyfriend, imagine a family of 4 member, it would be a rip off.
beside of all this, the beach is amazing.

Stunning!

The beach is beautifull and the old Watchtower in the background is really cool!

We had a few hours here before we went roadtrippin again.
Make sure you reserve a spot at the beach because the chances are rare you can come around at the spot without one. They staff who checks usually send people away.

Enjoy the view and goregeous beach!

A beautiful beach although a lot of people in summer. You have to make a reservation on a webpage prior to going because authorities are limiting the number of people. The water is awesome and the white sand gives you a Caribbean impression.

We were here just a few days ago. We bought tickets for 3 days in a row, just in case, and were able to go just once, due to ticking other itineraries. Buy tickets online on lapelosastintino.com. Do aim to arrive in the morning. Parking is along the streets and get full up quickly. Bring coins for the parking meter. There is some coin changer machine but it's sparse, or download the parking app (sorry, I forgot which one). After parking, go to the Information point to 'check in' and get your bracelet. The toilet and shower facilities at the Info point are also clean. There were many people, but not too packed. The volume of visitors is limited anyway. But I'd recommend hiring the deck chairs/umbrella. This is the safest option for 'social distancing' as everybody has their own space, which is at least 1-2m apart. Cash/card. Didn't find the option to reserve any deck chairs online. But as long as you arrive early e.g. by 11 am, there should still be some. There are restaurants along the beach. Go park the car, secure your deck chairs and then head to the restaurant of your choice to make a reservation for lunch/dinner. They get full up quickly. Awesome beach for little kids as it's like a super huge paddle pool! Super clear, clean water. Buy/bring a float. The photos we got from La Pelosa were just amazing.

Overrated tourist trap. If you like to be among vain people posing for the camera then this is the place for you. Hardly anyone actually swimming in the beautiful water. I went snorkeling and saw several different fish sadly most of the other tourists were too busy checking each other out. Small beach. Major tourist trap. No soul. Plenty of vendors selling tourist souvenirs.

This beach is probably advertised as one of the ‘must sees’ when being in the North of Sardegna. And for a good reason. The water and the beach are really beautiful. I can however imagine that it can be really crowded. I was there last July, when tourism was starting up again after COVID-19, but still more than enough people.
