Sand, beach, blue sea and a view on Isola Tavolara... relax sit back and enjoy. Large parking area not far away. We were here in May and we had the beach almost to ourselves. Superb

Beautiful beach, but SOOOO busy. Would love to go back there in the off season. Couldn't get a sun lounger so didn't hang around.

If you go on the weekend there is almost no place to lay down, but very nice beach with sand bottom (most beaches have stoney sea ground). Boat rides are available.

The beach is beautiful, but I guess everyone knows about it... :) quite crowded, but most of the best beaches are. The water is absolutely amazing, beautiful.

First time In Sardinia. First beach we came to. Parked up the street so did not have to pay for parking. The beach itself is quite narrow and very busy but that did not bother us. The sea is so clear!

came here on our cruise and went for lovely coach ride up the mountain for great views, and then spent some time on the beach.

Spectacular beach with lovely golden sand. Large shallow area making it good for young children but also good for ball/racket games in the water. Snorkelling also good with some rocky outcrops at the sides of the beach with many fish to see.

We didn’t like it because it was full of people. Surely it is beautiful without all those tourists 😊

Really lovely beach. Sea is amazingly. Not crowded when we visited. The area is clean and parking reasonable. Would definitely return.

Hi, the beach is at the opposite side of the side from the Club Elite, you have to drive to Murta Maria and then turn left following Porto Istana beach. You can get there in 30mins max.
