Alghero is famous for the beauty of its beaches. Let’s discover them together.
Las Tronas Beach
The first beach that we recommend is, of course, the one closest to our Guest House: only 200 meters and a five-minutes walk separate you from the cove of Las Tronas, near the homonymous and characteristic hotel on the sea. It is a small pebble beach of various sizes, bathed by green-blue water and from which you can admire the Bastions and the Capo Caccia Promontory.
Lido of Alghero and Maria Pia
The two beaches of the town, consist of an almost uninterrupted six-kilometers beach separating Alghero from Fertilia. Sometimes crowded during the day on the summer season, these beaches are stunning in the early morning and at sunset. Lido is a golden, equipped and free beach, whose border is underlined by an unusual row of palm trees. Maria Pia is characterized by a dunal system protected by a pine forest perfect for picnics or outdoor sports activities. The water is crystal clear and the white sand is almost impalpable.
Le Bombarde and Lazzaretto
These two almost adjacent beaches are located ten kilometers far from Alghero and three km from Fertilia. Both the bays are characterized by fine sand and clear blue-green water, and may are the coves between the two and between the Lazzaretto and the tower of the same name.
Mugoni and La Stalla
Heading to the coast northwards, you will come across the wonderful Mugoni Beach, a 2.5 km long expanse of white sand, sheltered by a pine forest perfect for sheltering from the hottest hour of the summer period. The beach is also equipped for the rental of Inflatables/ Surf/ Pedal boats and is also ideal for lunches and dinners on the beach kiosks. The beach of La Stalla is the natural continuation Mugoni’s, it’s a free beach and laps Porto Conte Hotel.
Torre del Porticciolo Beach and Porto Ferro Beach
These two beaches are particularly characteristic and almost adjacent. The first one towers in the characteristic Cala Viola, is famous from the clear deep blue sea and it is a perfect spot for snorkeling, given its rocky seabed. The latter is a three km yellow ochre sand beach protected by a stunning dunal system. Half of the beach is an equipped surf area, and the last one is free and used as Dog Beach. Beautiful are also the coves located beyond the beach, a typical destination for naturists.
Tramariglio and Cala Dragunara
Tramariglio is a beige sand in the Natural Park of Porto Conte which perfectly matches the green color of the sea and the rocky bottom, and is an ideal spot for snorkeling. Not being so popular, it is highly recommended in the most chaotic periods of the summer.
Cala Dragunara, a few hundred meters away, is characterized by the crystalline sea typical of the area of Capo Caccia. It is also the departure of the ferry that lead to the wonderful Caves of Neptune.
