Porto Torres was one of our stops on a recent cruise and we wandered around the town and found this lovely little beach at the bottom of a small cliff. There is a cafe at the top and also there was a water sport place,...More

Beach was close to where we stayed and it was nice. Quite crowded, but not too much. As it faces north and there are rocks around it, you won't see the setting sun in the evening

We visited spiaggia di Balai beginning of September. Amazing scenery and crystal clear water. It can get very busy so make sure you arrive early. Easily accessible by car (no narrow dirt road etc.) Relatively easy to find parking around. Smoking is not allowed on...More

We went here in the beggining of July and it was already very crowded for our taste. Otherwise it was nice to jump in and swim a bit. There were some small waves, but not to much. At the edge of the beach there is...More

Our family really enjoyed this beach. At 3, 4 pm it gets crowded, but it didn't affect us. There you can find two set of rocks for jumping, one small and one approximately 6 meters high. I recommend visiting this place!

Great beach, one of the best on Sardegna. Clear water, blue sea, white sand. It is good for swiming. Most of beaches on Sardegna that tourist visit are not good for swiming because there is not deep water. Definetly visit this beach

This was a stop off for us on the way back from Stintino and as such it was perfect. Just outside of Porto Torres (which on a drive through didn't look too promising), there's parking and lifeguards (I mentioned the waves!). It wasn't busy, though...More
