About Spiaggia del Principe

Principe beach (Spiaggia del Principe, also known as Portu Li Coggi), is one of the best beaches of Costa Smeralda. The beach is located near the small village of Cala di Volpe, between Romazzino beach and Capriccioli. About 800 meters away from the car parking areas (both free and paid), it will take you a good ten-minute walk along a rocky path before you’ll get rewarded and reach the white sandy beach, with its lovely clear water and ever-changing hues of turquoise. Principe Beach is divided by rocks in the middle that stretch out into the ocean, and is about 250 meters long in total. Principe Beach is a nice spot for snorkelling, as several species of small fish swim quietly in its shallow waters. A small bar serves lunch, ice cream and cold drinks. Spiaggia del Principe shouldn’t be missed by those visiting the Costa Smeralda, but it can get a little crowded in August, so you may want to go early.
