Sardinia is famed for its gorgeous coastline, endless sandy bays and beautiful clear blue waters, a beach holiday in Sardinia is like no other.

If you are planning your next beach getaway, perhaps Sardinia is on the cards? Whilst there are stunning beaches all around the island, south Sardinian beaches are truly deserving of the word ‘breathtaking’. Here are three of the best beaches in the south of Sardinia, picked by our experts.


This dazzling expanse of long sandy beach is ideal for a lazy day. Voted the 5th best destination for a beach holiday in Europe, we can certainly say that this is one of the best beaches in south Sardinia. There are lots of ice cream booths selling delicious gelato and other refreshments. One thing to note about the beach is the Mistral winds, when they blow through, conditions aren’t so great for a beach day, but, perfect for windsurfing and sea kayaking! There are facilities on the beach to hire equipment.

Our top pick for a hotel near Chia Beach is Hotel Aquadulci. This contemporary 4-star hotel boasts immaculate lawns set back from a lagoon. With just 41 rooms there is an intimate and peaceful feel around the hotel.

Costa Rei 

The Costa Rei just north of Villasimius is a beautiful stretch of beaches, with flawless sandy bays interspersed with secluded coves. It is great to explore a few of them in one day and enjoy some beach hopping.

The 7.4 miles of soft powdery sand at Costa Rei beach is a slice of paradise. It can get windy here, but it is great fun to find a secluded cove to seek shelter from the wind. Enjoy time here relaxing in your own little area of the beach!

To be within range of this stunning beach we suggest a stay at Hotel La Villa del Re, a stylish 5-star property with direct access to a private beach with views out over Costa Rei. A gorgeous hotel with everything you could need for a comfortable stay.

Nora Beach

Nora Beach is located right next to the Roman ruins and archaeological site: Nora Ruins. The beach here is perfect for families, with shallow waters and lovely warm temperatures. The views from Nora Beach are spectacular, with the backdrop of the ruins, the large expanse of beautiful blue waters and the looming watchtower on the promontory, known as Torre del Coltelazzo.

Our expert's top pick of hotels in the area has to be Hotel Sant'Efis, a modern hotel with a gorgeous pool area. There are splendid views from the hotel out over Torre del Coltelazzo. There are ample room types for you to find the perfect fit, plus a fantastic on-site restaurant.
