Where are we in Sardinia?

Website sections:




It is a strip of sand of about 3 km, divided in two by a small cliff and surrounded by an impressive sandstone wall, filled with Mediterranean vegetation and its inspiring perfumes.

It is called the “speaking beach” because of the particular sound that the sand makes when someone walks on it.

It is located on an unspoilt and suggestive environment, and it is a marvellous place to enjoy also at sunset, because of its red reflects on the sandstone wall.

You can reach the beach from the main parking lot going down a sand slide that gives the name to the beach and that in the summer is covered by a wooden platform, making it more easy to pass through. Otherwise, you can go through some less smooth tracks in the middle of the Mediterranean vegetation to arrive in more isolated points of the beach.

Perfect for

Paragliders and fishing.
