Best Sardinia Beaches Guide

Sardinia is truly paradise when it comes to beaches.

The beaches on this fabulous island are the best beaches to be found in the Mediterranean and many are among the best beaches anywhere in the world.

Beach in Sardinia/Sardegna

Elsewhere on our site we have put together a guide to those beaches that we believe are the best five Sardinian beaches with some great beach photos too (view the Best Sardinia Beach guide here) .

Our favorite beaches are mostly on the east coast but there are other lovely beaches throughout the island and our Costa Smeralda Beach guide covers the best beaches along Sardinia's most famous coast .

This page though is dedicated to the superb Sardinian beaches our visitors have discovered, beaches like Chia Beach.

Your Best Sardinia Beach

Sardinia

June Daniel's Recommends...

"A recommendation to you if you have not yet found it, is a Hotel called Monteviore Hotel.

The setting is spectacular, the food was some of the best we had and the price good.

The Hotel is situated as you go through the tunnel at the top of Cala Gonone turn left and follow this road for about 10 mins, the Hotel is on the right down a road about 1.5km."

Andrew's reply: Personally I would recommend the excellent value Hotel Bue Marino, which is right on the beach. Boats to the very best beaches in Sardinia and all of Italy leave from just a short walk away. 

Guido & Gabriella LOVE Baia di Chia

"There are lot of beaches in the bay and and a beautiful salt-water lake just behind the bay called Stagno di Chia, full of pink flamingos.

Much of the bay area is delightfully rural and unspoiled and though close to Cagliari a beach vacation here gives the feeling of peaceful isolation." Read more of Guido's review here.

More Beach Ideas...

Alghero has some lovely beaches too..

Another candidate as one of the best beaches in Italy. Ceridwen Harwood sent some stunning photos of Maria Pia beach.

Mary from the USA and I agree on Biderossa beach - Mary writes...

"Most visitors would perhaps choose the fabulous Cala Luna over Biderossa.

For me though the combination of the drive through a forest that opens out into vistas of an intensely turquoise ocean and the perfect sand that seemingly continues for miles makes this stunning beach my absolute favorite!"

Sue recommends Cartoe Beach:

"Cartoe,  20 minutes north of  Cala Gonone, is a beautiful sandy beach with the sea being a translucent Aqua marine colour.

We sat on the north side of beach with only a couple of other people, we could not see one single man made construction and we could see for miles.

The snorkeling was also the best we had seen all along that coast."

Poetto Beach & Cagliari are Joan's choice

Poetto Beach might not be Cala Luna or the Villasimius beaches but it is a lovely lovely beach and an enormous beach too, long and wide, about five miles long I think.

What's Your Favorite Beach in Italy?

I would love to hear from you as to which beach you think is the best beach in Sardinia, Liguria or indeed Italy. Please let me know.
