The beautiful sandy beach of Tuerredda is often described as the gem of Sardinia’s far southern coast. With its crystal clear azure water, fine golden sand and backdrop of verdant hills it is easy to see why.

Not only is the water a delight to behold it is ideal for swimming as the Tuerredda is fairly sheltered. The beach is framed by Capo Malfatano and Capo Spartivento, rocky headlands which provide respite from the north-westerly Mistral winds.

A couple of hundred metres offshore is a small island. If you are a strong swimmer then it is possible to swim out here but there are plenty of floating rentables available on the beach, from stand up paddle boards to pedalos. Also taking advantage of the calm waters are the yachts which anchor in the bay, adding to the upmarket feel of this stunning spot.

Despite being located in what geographically feels like the end of the earth Tuerredda is very popular and there is no shortage of parking. This means it can get pretty busy during the summer holidays so it is well worth getting here early if you want a good spot. It is also worth noting that the bar, restaurant and various other concessions take up quite a lot of the beach with their seating etc, so space really is at a premium. So much so that the possibility of charging beachgoers an entrance fee has been mentioned…
