La Pelosa Beach in Stintino is certainly one of the most famous attractions of all Sardinia, practically a masterpiece of natural phenomena. The white and fine sand creates unique transparencies in the whole peninsula.

Low seabed and water at the ankles for many meters. The nuances between sky and sea are of all kinds of blue and azure, passing by streaks of green, practically as in an island in the Caribbean Sea. Taking a bath in these parts improves the mood and makes the skin soft and smooth.

Pelican Beach, Emerald Coast

A beach also outside the mainstream tourism but characterized as much of northern Sardinia by white sand and blue sea.

It is often a quiet place, which makes it ideal for those seeking intense moments of relaxation and inner peace.

Le Saline beach, Olbia

Unlike Cala Spinosa, this beach, located not too many kilometers from Olbia is characterized by sandiness and width that allows greater comfort and excellent summer sunbathing.

In Sardinia, there are two beaches called in this way, one near Santa Teresa di Gallura and one in the seaside resort of Portisco, not too far from the famous Porto Rotondo, and this is the one we consider (without detracting from the other, but there is a choice).

As the name suggests this beach is characterized by its fine white sand. The landscape in the surrounding area is spectacular, from Marina di Portisco, with its island of the same name that is a synthesis of what you can find in Costa Smeralda: Beautiful sea, breathtaking scenery, and hospitality typically Italian. In short, yet another beach is not to be missed.
