Sardinia is blessed with hundreds of beautiful beaches and this has to be one of the best in the Alghero area. Not busy, and a big sweeping bay of beautiful sand and some rocky areas for snorkelling. If crowded Benidorm type beaches are not your...More

Very quick disembarkation from our trip from Toulon. Almost no signage at the first roundabout so ended up round the town lost even with sat navigation! We were aiming for Alghero and eventually found it was off the first roundabout! Needs more clear sign
