About the Local Area


Located on the western shore of the Golfo di Arzachena, Cannigione is a small fishing port with a handful of supermarkets and restaurants. The atmosphere is normally serene however you can get the hustle and bustle of tourists in August. There are also a number of beautiful beaches to the north of the village.


Golfo di Saline
North of Cannigione beyond Laconia, this beautiful bay shelters an exquisite beach of golden sand.

Santa Teresa
Enjoy stunning views of the straits of Bonifacio over the transparent turquoise sea as you head to the dramatic headland of Capo Testa to the west of Santa Teresa. The nearby bay of Santa Reparata has some delightful stretches of beach.

Tanca Manna
Tanca Manna sits approximately 250 metres from the road behind a saltwater lake. It has a great stretch of sand and plenty of facilities for families. A kilometre beyond Tanca Manna is Barca Bruciata, a small sandy beach which is quiet with no facilities.

Cala Capra
Cala Capra beach just beyond Golfo delle Saline is a pretty sandy bay tucked beneath the impressive Capo D’Orso headland with its distinctive bear shaped weathered rock.

The Capriccioli headland has five beautiful small sandy beaches. There are facilities for boat hire and also a bar close to the beach. These beaches, including La Celvia, are amongst the most popular in the area.
