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.

The Villa Las Tronas Hotel & Spa is our hotel pick near the Maria Pia beach. It is about half a mile from the beach and is set on its own headland. Have a look at the photo page on this link for an idea of the marvellous setting and to learn more about the hotel.
