1. The Best Sardinia Beaches in the North-West – Alghero
Lazzaretto beach – Alghero
Road SS 127BIS between Fertilia and Porto Conte
This is one of the most popular in the area. It tends to be quite crowded during August and over the week-ends. It’s a small beach surrounded by low rocks and Mediterranean scrub. The water is usually one of the coldest of the area but as soon as you get used to the cool temperature, it’s fantastic to explore the seabed full of sealife. Around the Torre del Lazzaretto built in XIV cent. you can find some really nice coves and bays. It can’t be missed!
