The beach is beautiful with it's fine white sand and the pines. Very nice when it is windy to be behind the dunes or under the trees in the shadow. Fantastic views too.

Lovely scenic beach, hidden behind a pine forest. People sunbathing and some swimming in the middle of October. Close to Alghero, some 30 minutes walking from the harbor.

We stumbled across this when walking from Alghero. The beautiful pine forest (which is a delight to meander through) leads to the beach which is beautiful. White sand and turquoise blue water. You can walk right along the beach which I would highly recommend.

There is. If you can't find the person to do it, then ask one of the beach sellers, they'll point you in the right direction.
