Northern Gallura Beaches
Whether you are a Costa Smeralda habitué or first-time visitor, we are certain you will agree with us that some of the world's most spectacular beaches are what distinguishes this place. Our infinity-edge pool imbedded in macchia and bizarre rock formations certainly offers perfect relaxation and refreshment on a hot summer day, but frankly, it has to take second place to exploring the snow-white sandy beaches boarding the turquoise blue Mediterranean. This short intro to the Costa's most spectacular beaches will wet your appetite.
This is Sardinia's capital of wind and kite surfing. An easy 20' northbound from our house with the car, you will find an attractive, long sandy beach with plenty of space to set up camp with your family, even on a busy Sunday. Its THE place where Europe's wind and kite surfers congregate. And when the famous northeasterly - the "Maestrale" - kicks in and the waves rise, high powered action is assured.
Tired of the nearby beaches? Is the Maestrale blowing the poolside umbrella away? Then its time for you to enjoy the elements at Rena Majore. You got plenty of space to enjoy this gorgeous sandy beach situated to the west of Santa Teresa di Gallura, some 50 km from the house. If you got yourself a surfboard then this is one of the places to go while the Maestrale is blowing. You won't regret the 40' drive.
Those of us who love walking or running on an "endless" sandy beach, Liscia Ruia (aka "Long Beach") should be the choice. It is in the same area as the Cala di Volpe and Romazzino beaches, but a bit further south. During July-August, the Long Beach bay is the Mecca of the yachting glitterati. You will find upward of 50 of the worlds most beautiful yachts here as it is much cheaper here than at Porto Cervo harbour.You access this beach from the Abbiadori to Cala di Volpe road turning right to a small dirt road right after the turn off of the main road to Olbia.
