We chose Maria Pia as our city beach for two reasons: (1) you can get there by bus from Alghero for 1 euro, bus 'AF' and (2) the pine trees atop the dunes provide natural shade, privacy and shelter away from the crowded sunbathers near the water.
Not so great is that the dunes are also used as trash dumps by lazy beachgoers so sections of them are quite littered with soda cans, junk food wrappers, cigarette boxes & butts.
Take some time to find your spot and enjoy the day and crystal clear waters.
