About Cala Monte Turno

With a length of just under 300 meters, Cala Monte Turno (Spiaggia di Cala Monte Turno) is one of the smaller beaches in this area near Costa Rei. It faces south-east, offering views to the north of Monte Turno – which this beach was named after. The sea is very clear in this bay, and rich in marine life, making this beach a very nice spot for some snorkelling. There are sun beds and parasols available to rent, and a parking area can be found just behind the beach. Two wooden kiosks offer excellent opportunities to enjoy lunch or dinner. As Cala Monte Turno is quite small, this little Sardinian paradise can become crowded easily during high season. Waters are shallow for the first few meters, making this a nice beach for families with children.
