Best Beaches in Italy
Maria Pia Beach near Alghero Sardinia

One of our visitors, Ceridwen Harwood, recently sent us some lovely photos of Maria Pia beach in Alghero Sardinia. This must be one of the best beaches in Italy.

Ceridwen describes the beach as:"Absolutely beautiful and it seems to stretch on for miles and miles".

I have to say that I do agree with her completely - this is a stunning beach.

I particularly love the shady trees just behind the beach itself - see the first photo further down this page.

These trees are great for a lunchtime picnic, an after-lunch nap or a bit of cool shade after a long morning of lying in the hot Sardinian sun.

Please scroll down for the photos and our tip of the best hotel to stay near this beach.
