Setting was beautiful and not crowded. The sand was coarse but overall nice. The weather was great and the beach had a bar and restrooms. There are not many signs but not difficult to find.

Hi again James, Bosa is a must, south along the coast. Regular bus service I believe. Spectacular coastal views. Bosa is small town full of character with castle, narrow streets and river.
