All beaches with reservation in Sardinia

Sardinia, with its crystal-clear waters and breathtaking beaches, attracts thousands of visitors every year. However, in order to preserve the natural beauty and to manage the influx of tourists, several beaches have introduced a closed number system. This system provides for a limited number of accesses per day and the need for advance booking at particular times of the day (usually during peak hours until 6 p.m.).

We have tried to compile a list of the beaches with reservations in Sardinia, with information on how to make a reservation in order to best enjoy these natural wonders. Beaches with reservations in Sardinia are becoming more and more numerous and administrations are adapting to offer a simple and practical system, as in the case of La Pelosa beach in the municipality of Stintino.

In many other cases, booking is not so intuitive and one has to wade through different regulations for each municipality or authority. In most cases, it is also necessary to pay an entrance fee to the beaches, which varies according to location and in some cases also includes the option of including parking.

To enjoy these natural wonders to the fullest, we recommend booking a boat tour or a guided excursion, which will allow you to admire the beauty of these beaches in a simple and organised way. You can choose the tour that suits you best and book independently accompanied by a local guide.
