Situated in the west of mainland Italy and south of Corsica, Sardinia is a dream come true with its 2000 km of coastline. Like every island, Sardinia has many beaches, each with their own specificity. Among them, the Pelosa in Stintino is one of the most famous.
The Pelosa, one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe
The beach of Pelosa Stintino is located in the Gulf of Asinara, in the northwest of Sardinia. As a tropical beach, it has the reputation of being a natural paradise. A beach of powdery white sand, turquoise blue water and a lagoon as far as the eye can see, make it a real postcard landscape. The lagoon is perfectly limpid, as if you were in Tahiti or Bora Bora. A beach that is equally suitable for adults and young children. Even 10 meters from the beach, you will still have your feet in the water. A perfectly safe place, with no risk of drowning. Thanks to the reefs in the surrounding area, the sea remains calm, even when the wind blows strong. This makes it a perfect place to relax and unwind.
A crowded beach, but well worth the detour
Success comes at a price. Here, it comes at a price and is reflected in the influx of tourists, especially in the summer months. As the Pelosa beach in Stintino has become a real attraction, it is extremely popular. Its popularity means that, on average, thousands of tourists come here every day to refresh themselves. But believe it or not, trying to make your way among the umbrellas is well worth the detour. On the other hand, for those who want to enjoy the beach 100%, there are a few tips to try. The first is to come early in the morning and not in the afternoon. For those who just want to see the scenery, spring is ideal to do so. At this time of year, school holidays have not yet arrived. Thus, the beach is very little frequented, ideal for taking in the fresh air of the horizons.
Discover the surroundings of the Pelosa
Around the Pelosa beach are the reefs of Capo Falcone, a Saracen tower overlooking the bay. But there is also Piana Island and the rocks of Asinara, places both historical and beautiful. Stintino itself is full of beaches, with white pebbles, etc. In short, the surrounding area has beautiful places to visit all year round.
