Spiaggia del Lazzaretto
Nestled on the shores of the Rada di Alghero bay, Spiaggia del Lazzaretto has a lovely 300 metre long white sandy bay with calm clear seas framed by a typical Mediterranean coastline. This scenic area is known as Riviera del Corallo.
The road to the beach is signposted from the SS127 Fertilia road. The south end of this gorgeous bay is marked by the landmark Torre del Lazzaretto castle, a round tower built from local limestone around 1580.
Of course, this picture-perfect beach is very busy during the peak season and parking can be difficult. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas to save carrying them from the car park. Out of season, it’s just as beautiful and popular with local families.
Snorkellers, scuba divers and swimmers can venture out around the headland to find other sandy bays that are less crowded, but they also lack the bars and restaurants that Lazzaretto has to offer.
Lifeguards watch over the bathers at Spiaggia del Lazzaretto from June to September, including those heading out from the beach in pedal boats and kayaks which can be rented nearby. Outside those months you’re on your own, so remember to swim or snorkel with a buddy, just in case.
