Putzu Idu offers a beach with fine, white sand with greyish hues. The beach, surrounded by the salt pans that are immediately found to its rear, and stretches between S’Arena Scoada and Mandriola, is received as a long and narrow very pleasant beach, above all thanks to the clear and very shallow waters that favour prolonged children’s swims and the games played by both adults and children.

This wonderful island is about 5 Nm from the Sinis shore. The island is the only remain of a huge granite block which during distant eras surrounded all the Western coast of Sardinia. The small beaches and bays are real natural paradises, solitary and unspoilt places. The water is blue, turquoise and transparent, ideal for lovers of snorkelling. All the enchanting bays can be easily reached by boat from the land.

Is Arutas beach stretches for several kilometers, it has a clear sea which colors are between green and blue. It is known as the beach of the grains of rice, being composed of small grains of quartz, which shades range from pink, to green, to pure white.
Is Arutas, as well as the nearby beaches of Mari Ermì and Maimoni, differ from the other coasts of Sardinia, because composed of porphyritic granite instead of the common calcareous rock. The seabed consists of colourful quartz grains which are the result of a long chemical evolution and atmospheric processing. This corner of Sardinia is unique and wild. It provides the basic services, but it is a destination far from the mass tourism. All these aspects make the beach of Is Arutas even more fascinating.
It is also considered a perfect spot for surfers also in the winter months because of the deep shore seabed. It is easily reachable from the main touristic centres of Sardinia and, on the way that brings you to Is Arutas, there are other interesting places, first of all, the archaeological site of Tharros.

Located in an isolated zone and of great naturalistic beauty, the beach of Piscinas, along the seashore of the Costa Verde, is surrounded for some kilometres by tall dunes (among the tallest in Europe), still alive and modelled by the mistral wind, its yellow ochre colour occasionally interrupted by bushes of prickly esparto, thorny carrot, sea lily and, more inland, junipers and old olives that form small groves.
A flora-fauna territory of great interest, the ideal environment for long walks on the sand, especially in the early hours of the morning, when it is even possible to glimpse the deer that actually go down to the sea and, in the month of June, the sea turtles that lay their eggs. Not far away, in Marina of Arbus, we find the stretch of beach of Funtanazza, of intense green waters and dark grey sand, and the beaches of Pistis and Torre dei Corsari, characterised by a long, wide beach surrounded by golden dunes. A swim offshore, at just 200 metres from the beach, allows the swimmer to observe a rare, evocative sea landscape, also noticing traces of a wrecked English ship that, loaded with lead and armed with a gun, has rested among the sand for some hundred years.

The beach, along the magnificent Costa Verde, is made up of ochre-coloured sand, hemmed by tall dunes, lapped by a turquoise-green sea. The beach stretches for around 1.5 kilometres up to the locality of Pistis. The bright golden colour of the sand strongly contrasts with the surrounding landscape, with sprays of green from the thick Mediterranean brush that covers the hills on the three sides of the hinterland (north, east and south).

Its waters are of a changing blue due to the plays of light created by the sun reflected on the seabed. An evocative chromatic display is offered by the mixture of the golden sand, the colour of the rocks, the deep blue of the sea and the carpet of typical vegetation of the Mediterranean brush that covers the hills to its rear.

Pan di Zucchero is a particularly interesting surfacing rock: detached from the Nai mountain, the large crag is 133 meters high and has two natural arches, one of which is navigable with a small boat through a tunnel of evocative sensations.

The beach of Masua has sand mixed with gravel, with rocks dotted around, but especially near the water’s edge.
The beach is very wide and the area offers numerous facilities: it has a large car park, cafe, eating areas and has shallow waters, allowing children to freely play in them.

It is also a much loved spot for those just wanting to do some scuba fishing or simply by those wanting to dive in its waters, perhaps with a mask and flippers, to admire its underwater world rich in pleasant surprises.

Set in a wild corner of the SW coast, among white calcareous cliffs, the inlet of Cala Domestica delights the eyes of the spectator with a beach covered in fine sand mixed with gravel, with rocks dotted all around, as well as being hemmed in by dunes punctuated by rich scented vegetation in stark chromatic contrast with the unbelievable blue of the sea.

The beach is found in a mining zone, and therefore on view, are the ruins of the buildings associated with the nearby mines; the stores or the depositories of the minerals to be embarked, but also tunnels that lead to the so-called Caletta, a reserved and very intimate beach, in which the mouth of a stream is found. In front, on the calcareous peninsula that looks to the S, the view is dominated by a solitary Spanish tower.

The area is particularly loved by scuba fishing enthusiasts or simply by those wishing to take a dip in its uncontaminated waters, perhaps with a mask and flippers to discover the treasures that are hidden below the waterline.
