About Bados Beach

Bados beach (Spiaggia Bados), located between Pittulongu beach and Nodu Pianu, lies just 10 kilometers away from Olbia. Bados beach shamelessly displays the classic features of the Emerald Coast beaches: sugary white sands, with an occasional patch of seagrass, and gorgeous seawater glistening from shades of emerald and jade to dark blue in the deeper areas of the ocean. Bados beach faces south-east, with Isola Tavolara being a part of the horizon.

The most popular Costa Smeralda resorts are easily reachable by car. Bados beach, just under 300 meters long, can get crowded in high season (July and August). Beach lounge chairs cost about 6 Euros for the day. There’s a small bar located on the beach providing you with cool drinks and snacks to get you through your day.
