About Maria Pia Beach
Head north-west from the center of Alghero for just a few kilometers, and you’ll discover Maria Pia beach (Spiaggia di Maria Pia). Together with Le Bombarde, this beach is one of the best beaches near Alghero. It is 1200 meters long and faces south-west, featuring excellent views of the small settlement of Fertilia, the Alghero bay and the tiny Isola della Maddalenetta situated 1.5 kilometers off the coast. Maria Pia is backed by beautiful dunes and a cooling pine forest that can give you some shade during the hottest hours of the day. The water is really beautiful and clear, the sand is clean and white, without too many rocks. Maria Pia is a great spot for walking or jogging along the shore. The waters at Maria Pia are shallow at first and get deeper gradually, so it’s a good beach for families with children. Plenty of sun loungers are available for rent, and there are several snack bars selling drinks and icecream dotted along the beach. The beach is also easily accessible with wheelchairs, it has a wooden pathway. The parking space is close to the beach.
Highly recommended when in Alghero!
