North East Sardinia beaches


Top 5 most beautiful beaches in North East Sardinia

The beautiful bay of Porto Istana is located in the Capo Ceraso area , a promontory a few kilometers from Olbia. Porto Istana is made up of 4 different beaches and we have included the third in our ranking of the most beautiful beaches in North East Sardinia . A crystalline sea, a white beach and almost never crowded, the proximity to the parking lots and the view of the Tavolara Island made me thrill but the whole family (ps: absolutely suitable for children). A tip, visit it in the period May June and September-October!


We are at Capo Testa, near Santa Teresa di Gallura and after a short staircase, adjacent to the only bar in that area, we arrive at a small beach (usually crowded in the summer) that deserves our attention. The sea is incredibly beautiful, the area is fairly sheltered from the wind and the color of the sand is pure white. The natural side dish is TOP.


I know very well that I have included a beach on the Costa Smeralda and I know just as well that in the months of June, July, August and September it is almost impractical given the overcrowding . In any case, I feel I can describe its beauty (when empty) from a natural point of view. It is one of the exclusive beaches in the area and in my opinion one of the most beautiful in north east Sardinia. The sea is turquoise, the sand is fine and white, and the rocky coastline shaped over time is absolutely prominent.


We come to my favorite. I put this small beach in second place despite the fact that from my point of view it deserves the first place together with Cala Tahiti on the island of Caprera . A greater description of the cove and the route to take to reach it is described in our post dedicated to this area. Check


Blue, turquoise, white, red: these are the colors of this wonderful cove. The blue that becomes turquoise of an absolutely fantastic sea, maintains a limpid appearance and transparency is visible at a depth of several meters (even 20). White is the color of the sand, white and fine. The reddish outline of the rocks that close this tiny bay difficult to reach on foot (by reservation and with 45 minutes with hiking / trekking shoes) but definitely worth a visit. PS: We are on the island of Caprera.
