Nestled between picturesque Punta del Cerchio and Porto Conte, Cala Bramassa awaits your exploration. Merely a half-hour drive from the heart of Alghero, this small cove offers a nice chance for a quick dip during your day tour in Parco Naturale Regionale di Porto Conte. Backed by Monte Rudedu in Punta Giglio, Cala Bramassa remains largely untouched. Due to the shape of the bay, its clear waters are slightly warmer than the neighboring coves, inviting you for a light swim or snorkeling adventure. Its shores are mingled with scattered rocks, do bring some shoes if you intend to enter its waters. Beyond the cove, there’s a scenic hike southward to the cape. Myrtle, juniper, and pine tree scents enhance the experience as you discover your path! Note that Cala Bramassa is no beach for sunbathing. The cove offers ample shade, making it a nice refuge for explorers seeking relief from the summer heat. Sunsets are particularly lovely here: as the day ends, you will be captivated by the breathtaking view of Capo Caccia. Whether you find yourself in Fertilia or Alghero, visiting Cala Bramassa for a few hours is highly recommended!
