The most beautiful beaches

  3. Cala Andreani. This beach is also located along the southern coast of the island of Caprera. His business card is a transparent and crystalline sea, white and fine sand, shallow and clear waters, in other words a simply perfect beach. An uncontaminated and wild beauty, remarked by the vegetation that surrounds the beach, and by the small pink granite rocks that emerge from the water, also covered with vegetation. At the back of the beach there is a green area that offers shelter and coolness, especially during the hottest hours of the day.
  4. Cala Coticcio. It is located on the east coast of the island of Caprera. And for its beauty and exotics it is also known with the nickname of Tahiti: the sea is in the shades of turquoise, the sand is immaculate, the beach is protected by natural rock pink sculptures. Not surprisingly, it is one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia.
  5. Cala Napoletana. On the north coast of the island, reachable by taking a short flat trail that, before arriving at the beach, will give a beautiful view. Cala Napoletana is small and characterized by the presence of a very white, immaculate sand.
