PORTO FERRO BEACH
About 26 kilometres north-west of Alghero, near Lake Baratz
How to Get There
At the crossroads for Capo Caccia on the Alghero-Porto Conte road, turn right and go straight on for about 3 km, turning right at the crossroads for Sassari/Santa Maria La Palma.
After about ¾ km, a sign on the left indicates the entrance to Porto Ferro; the road is paved.
Go ahead for 2 km until entering Via Monte Aratu on the right. After a few hundred metres, the road ends in a large open space where you can park.
It is a beautiful half-moon of fine reddish sand, very long and overlookd by three seventeenth-century Spanish watchtowers. A perfect place for those who like rocks, it is surrounded by dunes and a pine-wood. Very dense Mediterranean vegetation goes right down to the edge of the beach. Exposed to strong north-west winds, it is one of the favourite places for surfers.
Refreshment stands; lifeguards and rescue equipment to protect swimmers.
