L'ARGENTIERA BEACH, CALA FRANA
About 40 kilometres north-west of Alghero
How to Get There
From Alghero, take the road for Porto Torres. After about 20 kilometres, after passing the Joanne Abbas roadman's house, turn left towards Palmadula. After leaving Palmadula, turn left for l'Argentiera (S.P. 18). After 2.5 km, at the end of a long downhill stretch with hairpin bends and curves, you arrive at Porto Palmas.
Continuing straight on, after 2.7 km you reach the small village of l'Argentiera: the beach is at the end of the road. Access to the cove depends on how rough the sea is.
It is a picturesque cove with a half-moon beach whose pebbles and sand derive from debris and dust from mineral-processing. Two fine nineteenth-century mining constructions, abandoned in 1962, overlook the beach.
Bar at 150 metres.
