About La Cinta Beach

Located 3 kilometers south of Cala Brandinchi, La Cinta Beach (Spiaggia de La Cinta) near San Teodoro, is one of the longest beaches (3.2 kilometers) in north-east Sardinia and one of the most popular and best beaches of San Teodoro. Facing east, it offers stunning views of the Capo Coda Cavallo promontory to the north and Isola Tavolara rising behind it. It’s a perfect beach for people of all ages and families with children as its waters remain shallow for the first few hundred meters. La Cinta beach has clean blue waters and brilliantly white sand. Beach chairs are available to rent as well as paddle boats, and on windy days La Cinta beach is a great spot for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Kite lessons for both beginners and advanced, as well as sup lessons, can be arranged at the nearby Hard Core Surf Shop & Kite School. Marked by white sand dunes and juniper trees, a narrow strip of land separates the beach from Stagno San Teodoro lagoon where pink flamingos, herons and kingfishers occupy its waters. Given its sheer length, La Cinta beach is also ideal for long walks or jogging, preferably early in the morning. Plan your visit well, as this beach can get crowded mostly in August and September.
