Chiesa San Lorenzo

Reviewed By Diago_34 - Oxford, United Kingdom

Built by a famous architect, the church can be seen even when closed, because one side is like a large window. Very interesting woodwork, and sculptures.

Blu Beach

Reviewed By Imani M - Manchester, United Kingdom

During the day Blu beach bar is a chic relaxed place. Good prices, nice food and comfy chairs. The yacht club vibe accompannied by turquoise water infront of you make you feel really relaxed. 18:30-22:00 all drinks go up to 10 euro and the bar transforms. The music volume increases and the DJ eventually arrives. The food area is transformed into a dance floor. People arrive from nowhere to have a good time. Worth a visit. It may be worth mentioning that this is one of the few places on the beach with decent wifi.

Spiaggia Bianca

Reviewed By Fra P - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I have to start by mentioning the dj of the bar. Best music ever, from the most famous summer hits to old songs. He made it a special atmosphere.
We came here in the afternoon, around 16. There were mainly locals and it was not posh like other Beaches we have been to.
I had a good time. The beach is small and the water is clean (no sea weeds)

Catena Alimentare di Emmanuel Chapalain

Reviewed By BarbieMegaTraveller - Sydney, Australia

This pedestrian walkway is very special, it starts in the town where there are shops, cafes and bars, leading to the marina which is a beautiful location to see expensive yachts moored.
The walkway is done in a mosaic tile with huge fish, whales etc built into the beautiful tiles as you walk. The walk itself isn't very long, just a good 15 minute stroll and the area around is pretty. You can stop for a refreshment - drink/food at the many cafes, restaurants and bars that line the walkway.
At the end of the walkway is the marina, take a wonder around and view the expensive yachts moored there.

Spiaggia Capriccioli

Reviewed By hhnygaard - Bergen, Norway

The Capriccioli peninsula must be one of the best places along the Costa Smeralda.
Capriccioli beach (actually 2 beaches: Capriccioli West and C. East) is one of around 10 Beaches around the peninsula; all are exellent Beaches. It's a matter of taste, weather & wind conditions which beach one chooses.
The Capriccioli beach is perhaps the easiest accessible by road and with a relatively large parking next to the beach.
There is also a tourist information office in the beach bar, very helpful.
Between the beach bar and the beach, there is a small park-like area with trees where you may relax in the shadows.

Reviewed By Richard B - Spalding, England, United Kingdom

Busy restaurant with limited food choice for the usual English pallet. You need to book. In my opinion the service was slow and some of the staff were in need of training and motivation.

Spiaggia Punta Volpe

Reviewed By DAKAG - Wokingham, United Kingdom

It's not easy to find a beach in Sardinia in August with much spare space but Spiaggia Punta Volpe, at the northern tip of Porto Rotondo, is one. The view from the beach is across to the Costa Smeralda and so there are plenty of amazing ships and yachts passing along the channel. The water is crystal clear, with plenty of fish to spot, and the sand, although not as powdery as some, is still fine. Also you can walk in to the sea without having to navigate stones and rocks.
There are no restaurants or facilities on the beach, but parking is free and the walk to the beach is short. Also there is a life guard on duty.
Spiaggia Punta Volpe is a very beautiful place and was voted best beach by our family in August 2017.

Porto Rotondo

Reviewed By Jean_Richert - Rotterdam

During our 2 weeks stay in Sardinia we visited a few different places on the North East and West costs. We did find Porto Rotondo a bit too touristic to our tasty where there was a lack of authenticity. Most or even all restaurants are expensive and are sort of tourist trap. So if you want to get a real good feel to Sardinian food you'd better search for an agriturismo more into the country side.
