The Beach

Blessed with a wonderful location between Pula and Capo Spartivento, this pristine stretch of coastline offers icing-sugar-soft sands and clear blue seas, framed and sheltered by majestic mountains. The waters are warmer than other parts of the island, too, thanks to an almost tropical microclimate. Expect long, lazy days on this blissful beach, voted one of the world's top 25 by Forbes magazine.


Check into a beachfront paradise, with panoramic island and ocean views. Relax around the private pool area or meander to the beach, mess about on the water in canoes and pedalos, or dip down and snorkel among shoals of tiny fish. Take a break for lunch, then perhaps take a trip to the shops for a treat for each other. Come evening, nab a table on the terrace and fine dine on Michelin-star food and gaze into each other's eyes, the sounds of the ocean, the flickering of candles and the stars high above forming a wonderfully romantic backdrop.

In Addition

Sardinia boasts a rich heritage of craftsmanship and is particularly renowned for its production of ceramics, carpets, fabrics and embroidery and, alongside a range of boutiques offering Italian and international designer labels − including Gucci, Diesel, Fendi, Dolce&Gabbana, Valentino, Pinko, Lanvin, Agnona, Zegna and Missoni − you’ll find smaller outlets offering a host of these local crafts.
