About Poltu Biancu

Poltu Biancu beach (La spiaggia di Poltu Biancu) is the first and westernmost beach of Olbia-Tempio, situated right at the Olbia-Tempio and Sassari border. It is the first beach you’ll find on the long stretch of coast that is home to the generally quiet beaches of Badesi – together with Pirotto li Frati beach, Li Mindi beach, Li Junchi beach and Li Feruli beach. Also known as Lu Poltu di Lu Calboni, Poltu Biancu beach is located 1.5 kilometers west of the vilage of Valledoria. It has a length of approximately 1.5 kilometers, although it’s hard to say exactly where Poltu Biancu beach ends and where the adjacent Pirotto li Frati beach begins. Poltu Biancu faces north-west overlooking the azure waters of the Golfo dell’Asinara, and on a clear day you can even see Corsica 60 kilometers to the north. This stretch of coast is usually quiet throughout the entire summer season, ideal for those looking for some tranquility away from the tourist crowds. Like most beaches in this area of northern Sardinia, Poltu Biancu has no facilities.
