Spiaggia Monti d’Ă  Rena is another stunning beach on Isola Maddalena and also known to locals as Monti d’Arena beach. It features turquoise waters, white sands, and some might say the most impressive ocean views in the area.

The nearby junipers and pine trees offer plenty of shade from the sun, and families, in particular, seem to favor this beach in La Maddalena. But why might this be so?

Aside from the shade, which is plentiful, the water is shallow and calm, which gives peace of mind when it comes to children swimming. There are also granite rocks along the beach, which offer an excellent vantage point for views and photographs and perhaps some adventure for the kids.

Located just 4 kilometers from the center of La Maddalena town, the beach is easy to reach and somewhat bigger (200 meters) than nearby Spiaggia di Bassa Trinita. Visitors have much more space to enjoy, and the soft sands rarely feel crowded. The scenery is also very different, with a nice view of the headlands of Punta Abbatoggia and a small bay.

While the calm waters of Spiaggia Monti d’Ă  Rena make it popular with windsurfers and other water sports, families with young children will appreciate the safe nature of this beach.

You will also find restaurants and cafes a short drive away and many parking spots within walking distance of the beach.
