Typical Sardinian scenery at Porto Istana Beach

Porto Istana beach (Spiaggia di Porto Istana) is scattered with short rocky beds intermittently placed between stretches of white sand. Directly in front of the beach is Isolo Tavolara (Tavolara Island) which is an awe-inspiring sight while you are relaxing on the sand or walking out into the ocean. Apart from the island, you are also surrounded by beautiful scenery with a stretch of white sand and green vegetation which accompanies the turquoise shore – you may even be lucky enough to spot a pod of dolphins along the way. Popular activities at this beach include windsurfing, jet skiing, diving, canoeing, sailing, and snorkeling. Many tourists love having these daily sports available at their fingertips, and if you just click your fingers, a local vendor will be offer before you know it. Local hotels can also pre-book these activities before you arrive and the beach also provides a sailboat/rubber dinghy hire if you wish to take an adventure to the marine park or even up to Isola Tavolara. For those of you who want just to relax and bronze under the golden sun with a good book, there is a bar and restaurant for you to quench your thirst or get a quick bite in between body turns. If your hotel is not on the beach, you can also pay to use the facilities of the hotel available. This includes the sunbeds, restaurant, bar and waiter service which is a lovely touch when you just want to laze with a cocktail in one hand and your kindle in the other.
