“Gorgeous beach but overcrowded in August”
Review of La Pelosa Beach

La Pelosa Beach

Reviewed January 7, 2013

In Sardinia there are plenty of beautiful beaches but this one is overrated (in my opinion) and highly populated in August.
It is difficult to see the shore from the back of the beach due to the number of people.
There should be a limited access of tourists.
It's very difficult to find any parking space, but there is a shuttle service from the main hotels and from Stintino.

Such a gorgeous beach, we've just come back from a few days away and this beach was an absolutel highlight. There were loads of people kite-surfing and windsurfing and inspite of the weather being a tad parky - it was an incredible sight... I loved it and would be fascinated to see what it was like "in season!.... A very special place...

Lovvely beach with wonderful hues, turqoise water and fine white sand. I've heard that it easily gets crowded during high-season but we went in beginning of september and the weather was still very nice and warm (aq bit windy though) but there wasn't any problem finding a good spot on the beach.

By far the best beach I have visited since I swam in Bali, beautiful clear waters pollution free and extremely safe. Downside is the sheer number of people, real estate is at a premium but you can swim off the rocks. Don't drive here you'll end up walking for miles and pay a fortune, regular bus service from Stintino is the way to travel and only costs a euro.

We visited and stayed at La Pelosa Beach for ten days this last August.We had a villa accommodation very close by but we only managed to visit the actual beach 2 or 3 times as it is almost impossible to find a place to park during the day time,so we went at dusk,even at that time is still beautiful,if you don`t get there early in the morning,forget it,you struggle to find a spot to lay your towel!August is a mad time to go there,but you can still appreciate the beauty of the place....the local council is planning a way to actually "reduce"the number of visitors as they are polluting the environment and slowly destroying the beauty of this Caribbean looking marvel.We will surely go back to Stintino,but not during August
