“Sand, Sun & Shade”

Spiaggia di Maria Pia
Ranked #5 of 98 things to do in Alghero
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 10, 2012

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.

Nice soft white sand, some activities. The sea was a bit uninviting when we arrived as the weather had turned cold.

Nice beach... white sand... clear water... very good for young kids! The other thing which was very nice was the pine trees which you have to go through to get to the beach - they add a nice touch to it!

Graced with beautiful turquoise sea, which is much needed after a sun-bathing session. Soft sand & plenty of choice for sun loungers & bars to replenish liquids.

The beach is very close to the centre of Alghero. Went there once only as it was too crowded. You won't get much space or peace and quiet on that beach. Great for young, single people though!
