"The most beautiful beach in Sardinia
is the one to visit in the right place at the right time!"
My idea for SpiaggeSardegna.eu
Hello, I'm Fabrizio, I have been living in Sardinia for over 34 years, and I wanted to share my experience with you!
All that glitters is not gold
Sardinia is a spectacular island, every corner hides wonders, wonders that are sometimes influenced by the period and the weather, which can sometimes disappoint expectations.
What will you find?
In this portal, I will mainly talk about the beaches of Sardinia, not to diminish the culture or the archaeological treasures present (for that, I invite you to visit Nuraghi.net), but because I wanted to create something that tells about all, but absolutely all the beaches of Sardinia.

When can a beach be considered beautiful?
Determining the beauty of a beach is never easy.
Beyond opinions, which vary from person to person, several variables come into play:
- Period: seeing an overcrowded beach in August is not the same as seeing a semi-deserted beach in the off-season.
- Time: beaches change colors throughout the day, and some of them visually appear much more beautiful at specific times of the day.
- Weather conditions: clouds and wind substantially change the perception of beaches.
- Rough sea: it significantly alters the beach, both in terms of perception and physical features.
Fortunately, each of us thinks differently!
One of the most advertised and popular beaches in Sardinia, in my opinion, is undoubtedly Spiaggia della Pelosa.
For 9 months of the year, it is probably one of my favorite beaches - white sand, turquoise water, breathtaking panorama, it feels like being in the Maldives.
However, for the remaining 3 months, in my opinion, it becomes too crowded, a real "chaos".
For me, this becomes the moment to search for other hidden paradises, less crowded by mass tourism.
This is the time to choose the right beach at the right moment, just as I explain in the guide "Beaches in Sardinia".
Where do the Beach Information come from?
A nagging idea!
I had this project in mind for a few years.
The idea was to start from a location and personally visit every single stretch of the coast.
The harsh reality, as often happens, brought me back to earth.
Visiting over 1600 km of coastline with over 750 beaches at the right time of the day and with the grace of the sun was practically impossible!
Even assuming I visited 3 beaches per week, it would have taken me 5 years, full-time and without funds, to complete the project.
How did I do it?
In the years I spent in Sardinia, I visited several beaches, but how could I compensate for the others, and most importantly, how could I discover and document the hidden ones?
Fortunately, technology helped me, and the services offered by Google allowed me to approach this research more easily.
In essence, I opened Google Maps and, through the satellite images, I started from a precise point and "circled Sardinia", selecting, cataloging, measuring, and documenting as much information as possible about each individual beach.
The stories from users who had already visited them, videos on platforms like YouTube and social channels, allowed me to complete this research work in about 2 months, working 10-12 hours a day.
