    Beach, sand, water look very nice. Blue like on the pictures. The problem is a number of people and no showers and one toilet just at the beginning of the beach. Actually I got a rush on my legs after this water. This is why I like less beautiful beaches in Spain. There is always a lot of free showers with sweet water and toilets. They should be installed also here.

    Unlike other Italian cities, where markets have a century-old history, San Benedetto is indecently young. It was founded most recently in 1957. The reason is simple, its predecessor Largo Carlo Felice was demolished by bombing Allied aircraft in World War II. Despite the fact that there are several more markets in the relatively small Cagliari, San Benedetto turned out to be a very large market. Its area is 8000 sq.m. on 2 floors. It is the largest market in Italy and one of the largest in Europe. Maybe the reason is the Sardinians' love for fresh products and the very process of market trading, which you are deprived of in soulless hypermarkets. Probably, the reason for the popularity of San Benedetto is the sellers. They are surprisingly friendly and tactful. We came to buy fruit, cheese, ham and olives for the road. It was already late, some of the traders were already winding down, but the market did not lose its appeal. On the market you can buy the main specialties of Sardinia - Bottarga (dried caviar), Prickly pear, the famous Sardinian honey and, of course, Pecorino cheese. The first three delicacies are for an amateur, but Sardinian cheese is worth trying for everyone. Pecorino sardo can be sweet (dolce) or mature (mature) depending on the aging period.

    Visitando questa spiaggia capisci quanto sia bella la Sardegna e come non sia necessario fare viaggi internazionali per vedere bellezze naturali incantevoli.
    When visiting this beach you realise how beautiful Sardinia is and how it isn’t necessary to travel towards exotic or expensive places to see enchanting natural beauty.

    Clean crystal clear water with white sand. Exactly what Sardinia is famous for. Gently sloping beach where you can wade out quite a way before being out of your depth. Good for non swimmers and safe for kids.

    Private car park at €1.50 per hour.

    Clean toilets if needed.

    Take your own parasol unless you fancy paying €30 per day for front row sun loungers and parasol.

    Lots of lookie lookie men and massage women who can be persistent and irritating. We had fun watching some Germans teasing them.

    Plenty of space available at least when we travelled. It tends to be more crowded at the weekends.

    amazing place!
    Even though it was a little bit cloudy, the water had a wonderful color!
    the sand was so tiny!
    It's amazing but I really don't understand why the north places are so much more famous than the rest of the south of island! I found it much more interesting the south of the island

    Crystal water. Beautiful sand. Wonderful day on the beach. But you have to arrive early before 9.30 am.

    A couple of metres higher than sea level, this beach is beautiful yet suitable for those with good leg strength and balance to climb up the sand when exiting the water. Turquoise, clear, cool water and a beach club where you can have a delicious lunch.

    One of the nicest beaches I have ever seen. Parking is close by but even in April pretty full. Absolute clear waters.

    If you want to go for wind-water sports, this is the place to be in north Sardinia!

    It's usually a bit crowded, but nice people, good conditions and lots of schools.
    Although not all to beginner-friendly, due to deep and choppy water.

    Be have been here for couple hours,
    Just walk through trees and over rocks,parked at the end of the road at the roundabout.The path can be hard to find at first, but once on it, you Will love.The beaches total about 3 nice beach.Rocks are great to climb on and there are a few jumping spots.
    Best to have shoes to climb on the rocks as they can be treacherous.its worth it
