About 17 kilometres north-west of Alghero
How to Get There
Leave Alghero in the direction of Porto Conte. At the crossroads for Capo Caccia, turn right.
Just before Hotel Baja di Conte, turn right in the direction of Santa Maria La Palma and go straight on for 1.4 km.
Turn left on a paved road which after about 900 metres leads to a campground.
Turn right and go on for 200 metres and you've arrived! Leave the car and go down to the beach, following one of the two paths on the left.
Overlooked by a seventeenth-century Spanish watchtower, the beach is a little cove reached by going down steps cut into the earth for about 100 m.
The beach and shore-line are covered with pebbles, but the water deepens rapidly and there is a rocky bottom.
The crystal-clear water is always a pleasant temperature. This little cove is sheltered from the wind and undercurrents.
Behind the beach is an area with low Mediterranean vegetation, excellent for trekking. There is a picture- postcard view from the Tower.
look for your holiday house!!!
