About Spiaggia Mare e Rocce
Frequently visited by locals from Olbia, Spiaggia Mare e Rocce is a secluded, picturesque beach in Pittulongu with beautiful white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters.
The small pebbly cove is located only a 15-minute drive from Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport, and it is easy to reach once you’ve arrived at Pittulongu village.
It has a length of 180 meters and faces south-east so you can marvel at splendid views of the iconic Isola Tavolara 11 kilometers off the coast.
During shoulder season, you won’t have to worry about parking, as there is plenty of space available in the residential area behind the beach. Spiaggia Mare e Rocce is accessible on foot from both the north and south side. If the beach gets too crowded in high season, you can easily walk to Spiaggia del Pellicano, which is located right next to Mare e Rocce.
Spiaggia Mare e Rocce is spotless and, unlike many other secluded beaches in Sardinia, offers restaurants, hotels and B&B’s close by.
It’s an excellent spot for spending some time in the sun, reading a good book, snorkeling, and swimming. Besides, with its shallow water and sandy bottom, Spiaggia Mare e Rocce is family-friendly and a perfect spot to spend a relaxing day by the sea with your kids. Always, keep an eye on them though, as there usually is no lifeguard at this stretch of sand.
There is a small kiosk on the south side where you can enjoy a refreshing drink while enjoying the sunset as the ferries to and from Olbia slowly slide along the horizon.
