This is very nice white sandy beach with a crystal clear water. Water is also a bit warmer than at some other beaches on Sardinia.I 've been there on Sunday at the and of June and the beach was very crowded and parking was also nightmare.So don't go there if you are looking for a quiet place. But the color of the water is spectacular and at least once you have to go there to see this beach.

Good things: it's absolutely stunning; one the the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to. The sea is literally like a giant swimming pool and it's perfect for kids because it's shallow. Spectacular,
Bad things: if you're not staying in Stintino, you'll have to drive a few kilometers to get there. There's a lot of space for parking, but it costs 2,00€/hour on weekends (1,50€ on weekdays). Get there the ealiest possible - yes, it does get crowded! We visited it by the beginning of summer and it was already full of people (still ok, though).
Bottom line: it's worth the visit. You'll be amazed.

When deciding to go to La Pelosa (50 min) north of Alghero we knew it would be a over crowded place. But we where wrong it was absolutely packed with people. And this was 10 a clock in the morning, in June. If you go - be prepared. Two chairs and an umbrella was 20 Euro. However putting your towel right on the beach is for free. Walking along the shore to the north you will be able to take some amazing photos of the place with the beautiful water and the ruin in the background. But turn around and... View it as a funpark. Been there - done that. But this is not my take on how a beautiful beach should be like.

I'm not normally a beach kinda person however having been given this location as a place to visit by a guy in a bar I was keen to see it for myself.

Drove the 50 minutes from Algehro and wasn't disappointed! Crystal clear waters, amazing vistas, parking (mid week) not too bad of a little expensive and some of the best snorkeling I found in Sardinia.

I would suggest you forget the main section with the sand as this gets very busy and keep going up to the main car park area. Dump your car and get out down onto the rocks which make for some great sun bathing spots and is near a little cafe for drinks etc.

The snorkeling is second to none. Interesting rocks teeming with fish to deep sandy clearings to get lost in. Its easy to get wrapped up in the beauty of it all and find yourself surfacing near the island opposite and its a shame not to explore it if that happens (just mind the sea gulls!).

This is one of the best scenic beaches I have seen.

However, the beach is really small and parking a nightmare even in the low seasons such as last week when we went.

The water is crystal blue and the view of the tower makes it overall beautiful.
