Thanks to the rugged 1,897 km of coastline, Sardinia is one of the Italian regions with the greatest number of beaches, coves and bays. Sardinia will certainly satisfy everybody. You will find beaches here with fine white, pink and red sand, hidden romantic coves, beaches with sand dunes, pebbled beaches and wild crags sloping down to the sea. All of them are beautiful and unique and are able to enchant even those who are at home in Sardinia every time they see them.
Below is a selection of the most beautiful beaches which you can visit during your holiday in Isola Rossa:
Longa beach – Isola Rossa (0 km)
A beautiful beach with fine white sand and crystal clear water located right in the Isola Rossa resort, a stone’s throw from the apartments. Ideal for families with children thanks to the gentle incline into the water. The beach is open to the public. A small part of the beach is equipped with loungers and sunshades which can be rented. You will find a scuba diving centre here, canoe and pedalo rental as well as motor boat and water scooter rental.
Li Femini beach – Isola Rossa (0 km)
The smaller Li Femini beach is located next to the tourist port in Isola Rossa and is in particular popular among families with small children thanks to the gentle incline into the water. Only women were allowed to sunbathe on this beach in the past, which is where the name of the beach “Li Femini” comes from (“women” in Gallurese).
La Marinedda beach – Isola Rossa (1 km)
La Marinedda beach with white sand is hidden in a cove between Isola Rossa and the Li Caneddi headland. It is renowned among surfers from all over the world and an international Surf Contest is held here every year. The beach is open to the public.

La Pelosa beach – Stintino (90 km)
The most beautiful beach in northern Sardinia is rightly called the Caribbean of the Mediterranean. Thousands of tourists come here every year to admire the fine white sand and turquoise sea. You certainly won’t be alone here even in May, but La Pelosa is worth a visit even so.
