2. Cala Sabina, Golfo Aranci

Near Golfo Aranci, north of Olbia, there is Cala Sabina beach. This secluded Caribbean-style bay is surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation and from the beach you have a view of the emerald-green sea. There is free parking and a beach bar where you can eat, drink, or rent a parasol with sunbeds. From June to September, the beach is open from 7am to midnight. If you want to be ahead of the crowds, we recommend that you go to the beach early in the morning, especially in August it can get very busy here. During the day, usually many boats make a snorkelling stop off the coast of this Caribbean beach. 

Tritt Tip: The Cala Sabina beach can also be reached by train from Olbia! The station is within walking distance of the beach.

A hidden paradise, ideal for those looking for relaxation away from overcrowded beaches of the Costa Smeralda. Cala Spinosa beach is the perfect location for those who like to discover unspoilt, “secret” places. To reach the beach you have to follow the directions for the lighthouse of Capo Testa via a steep path, then you will find Cala Spinosa with its 3 beaches separated by colorful rock formations. The first beach consists of a fine, white sand beach and the next two are a yellow, bronze sand beach. This part of the Sardinian coast is popular with snorkelling enthusiasts, while the views of the white cliffs of the Strait of Bonifacio and Corsica are a photographer's dream.

4. Palau

The seaside resort of Palau, on the Costa Smeralda, has been popular among international and Italian tourists for many years. Near the center of this seaside resort there are two beaches, both worth a visit. The first beach, La Sciumara, is characterized by the coarse, cream-colored sand. From the beach you have a view of the island of La Maddalena. The Porto Faro beach, also called the gem of Palau, is located close to the town, in the Porto Faro district. This beach is one of the most characteristic beaches of northern Sardinia. Porto Faro gets its name from the white lighthouse that dominates the bay, built on a rock at the end of the beach. Also, from this beach you have a magnificent view over the islands of the Maddalena Archipelago.

5. Porto Giunco, Villasimius

The tropical beach of Porto Giunco in Villasimius is characterized by a long strip of soft sand with pink shades that come from tiny pieces of granite and give the beach a tropical look. The beach is very long and there is almost always a possibility to find your own spot. Due to the shallow seabed, the Porto Giunco beach is perfect for families with children. The beach is surrounded by headlands and Mediterranean vegetation, which protects the beach from the wind and creates a unique relaxed atmosphere. Not only families with children can enjoy the beach, but also adventure seekers will love Porto Giunco. The Porto Giunco beach is very popular among surfers, snorkelers, and divers. Hiking enthusiasts can walk through the promontory to the southwest, where the Porto Giunco tower stands.
