Fontanamare beach (Spiaggia di Fontanamare) lies just under Fontanamare and Nebida in the visually attractive gulf of Gonnesa. Like most beaches of the Costa Verde, its golden sandy beach spans several kilometers and can get over 100 meters wide in some places. Eroded limestone cliffs, foothills that go as far as the sea, and the Mistral winds make this area contrast wonderfully with the popular beaches on the other side of Sardinia. Fontanamare beach is a popular surfing and kitesurfing spot, and a great place for long walks, jogging and running. A pine forest runs parallel to Fontanamare beach, and behind it one can find one of the most important wetlands of Sardinia, Gonessa Sa Masa, making the area a great spot for birdwatching as well.
