“Way too crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

Yes it is a nice beach and a nice cycle from Alghero but in my opinion just way too crowded, found a much better beach soulth of Alghero, longer cycle, cheaper sun beds and far less crowded. Good beach bar too

“Not very crowded, offers a good view of the old town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

The place isn't very crowded, there are a no. of snack and drink bars within small distances, the old town is clearly visible from the beach. We were at the beginning of the beach- which wasn't very crowded but as we walked towards the lido beach it became quite crowded. The sunset was beautiful though.

“Much space”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

It was huge, no problem finding a spot to lie down. The water is very clear. Watch out for the foodplaces on the beach though.

“Nice beach, walk from town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

The beach is about 40 mins walk from Alghero old town and although it's nice, I'm no sure it's significantly nice enough to warrant the walk when the lido Bach is near. There s a little cafe and plenty of sunbeds to hire. It is quieter than the lido beach as it is away from the main road. It's a bit quicker to walk along the beach (as long as you're happy to clamber over a few rocks) than it is on the road.
