About Spiaggia di Buggerru
The main beach of Buggerru (“Spiaggia di Buggerru”) is conveniently located near the center of the old and sleepy mining village in the province of Carbonia-Iglesias, southwest Sardinia.
You’ll find it on the right side of “Porto Turistico di Buggerru”, a small port suitable only for yachts with a shallow draft and a handful of sailing boats.
The beach has golden sands and has a length of about 350 meters. Near the harbor it is about 120 meters wide. Spiaggia di Buggerru faces southeast, making it a nice spot for that early morning dip or to catch the sunset of the day.
If you’d like to explore, make sure you visit the part to the extreme right of the beach, where you’ll find a small promontory overlooking the sea, and a small cave nearby.
It’s a good idea to bring your own umbrella and towels as there aren’t any kiosks for sunbeds and umbrellas. If you need any drinks and snacks, there’s a supermarket nearby in the village.
Spiaggia di Buggerru is a good spot for surfing. Perfect waves unroll along the arm of the pier and the Buggerru Surf School nearby has plenty of options for the beginner and the advanced surfer. The surf school is located right behind the Museo del Minatore.
You can park your car in the parking lot right behind the beach. The parking lot is just off the Strada Provinciale 83. To the north, the road leads to Portixeddu. To the south, the road will take you to Cala Domestica, which is a must-visit beach if you’re staying in the area of Buggerru for a few days.
