Lying at the foot of Capo Falcone on the north-western tip of Sardinia is one of the islands most stunning beaches. A stretch of white sand and shallow, turquoise waters make La Pelosa everything you could desire from a Mediterranean beach. In addition to all this the beach has a secure enclosed feeling with the island of Piana just offshore and guarding the channel to the north a sixteenth century watchtower. It is this round granite tower that you will see in all the photos of La Pelosa and it can easily be reached on foot, although access into the tower is forbidden.
This part of Sardinia is wild and beautiful with nature present in abundance. The azure sea is also teaming with life and the snorkelling is good whilst safe. If you are serious about your diving there are plenty of excursions around Capo Falcone.
Whilst there are some facilities at La Pelosa, the nearby fishing village of Stintino is within walking distance and there are plenty of places to eat here, as well as a more lovely beaches and a harbour.
