Cala Brandinchi beach (Spiaggia di Cala Brandinchi), located roughly 7 kilometers north of San Teodoro and 2 kilometers east of the small village of Monte Petrosu, has a very special place in our hearts.

Being one of the most beautiful and famous beaches of Sardinia, it is known as ‘Little Tahiti’, because of the gorgeous colors of its waters. The beach has amazingly clear and shallow waters, making this beach perfectly suitable for families with small children.

Cala Brandinchi beach faces east and is over 700 meters long – perfect for a relaxing stroll along the waterline! Sandy dunes with pine trees and lovely lillies further define the excellent surroundings of this beach. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Cala Brandinchi beach is very popular during summer.

It has won a place in the top ten of Best Beaches of Italy many times, and is on our list of Best Beaches of San Teodoro.

Highly recommended!
