About Scivu Beach
Scivu beach (Spiaggia Scivu), between Piscinas beach and Portixeddu beach on the beautiful coastline of Costa Verde, is a strip of golden sand in an environment that has remained completely untouched. Scivu beach is approximately 3 kilometers long, and is divided by a small reef. Its waters are usually wild and its dunes can reach up to 70 meters. Even in August, few people are to be found on Scivu beach, and most of the facilities mentioned above are only available in summer. As you will be exposed to the sun and wind, make sure you bring something for shade.
