What beaches

by Alison26

Hi my freinds and I are coming to alghero this week, we were just wondering what the best beaches to go to in the area are? Are there hidden beaches that we can explore and hows best to get to them. We'd prefer to go to quieter beaches.

Hi Alison, As i was only there for a day i can't recommend a particular beach but Neptune Caves are a must. Take a look at this link & see what you think:

Hi Alison,

I went to a beach that's well within walking distance of the town itself (15 min), just go past the port and carry on, and that one was fine. With transport to find something more idyllic you could go up towards the north to the Stintino area.

Re: What beaches

Great beaches all along the Via Lido (Via Garibaldi takes you there from the Centro Storico)but they will be busy right now (but not the worst either).
Also worth a bus trip to the beah at Fertilia, best one is just before the bridge which is the Alghero city limit opposite the camp site.

We were based in the town of Alghero, which is on the north western part of the island. The old part of the town has some beautiful Catalan gothic architecture and is fascinating to walk around in. The streets are cobbled and sometimes awkward to walk on so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

The town is surounded by high walls and was founded in the 12th century. Several well preserved towers are dotted in strategic places but it is not possible to go in them. During the Catalan period, the wealthy families built 'palaces' which were more like three story terraced homes. Most of these are now apartments but some have been turned into restaurants so you are able to see what the inside might have been like.

The town is also famous for coral and there are jewelers everywhere selling pink and red coral jewelry. Some is very nice and not too expensive. Others are exquisite works of art and looked like museum pieces. Gold jewelry is another big tradition and there is some beautiful filligree work.

Another town we visited was Bosa. This is about 46km south of Alghero and also dates back many centuries. There is little remaining of the castle on the hill but you can still climb the steps to see it. The view of the valley is really beautiful. Bosa has it's share of gothic architecture as well.

The entire island is a dream for anyone interested in archaeology. Nearly every hill has a Nuraghe tower on it. These were built by the earliest known people on the island and date to the Bronze Age. The remains of their tombs are found everywhere as well and are equally as fascinating. Walking from our apartment to Alghero Old Town every night for a fantastic meal!

Make a trip to Bosa

by lotharscheer

Its a very nice coastline to Bosa, mostly rocky some tiny beaches, and Bosa is a small old town with a Castle (mostly destroyed) on a hill.
Go there by bus from Alghero, Via Catalogna corner Via Cagliari (get return ticket, € 5,50 at the ticket office there)
