About Spiaggia Rena Bianca
Rena Bianca beach (Spiaggia Rena Bianca) is the main beach of Santa Teresa Gallura. It is situated just a few hundred meters north of the center of the ancient village. It has a length of about 200 meters and faces north, offering views of the tiny Isola Municca to the north-west, the white cliffs on the coast of Corsica to the north, and la Torre di Longonsardo to the east. In 2018, Rena Bianca received a ‘blue flag’ award, meaning it has excellent bathing water, high-quality tourism facilities and a strong focus on environmental sustainability. For these reasons the beach is on our list of Best Beaches in North Sardinia. It’s also well equipped: plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas, pedal boats, and canoes are available for rent. There’s a bar nearby on the hill that serves snacks and drinks. It’s a very good beach for families with children, as the water here remains shallow for several meters, and the beach is sheltered from the Mistral winds. You’ll find some good snorkelling spots around the rocks. For some great holiday pictures, don’t forget to climb the hill of la Torre di Longonsardo and admire the amazing views and the colors of the sea, they are simply fantastic! As Santa Teresa is such a popular destination, Rena Bianca can get quite busy, especially in August when the Italians are on vacation.
