The beach is characterized by majestic sand dunes and is surrounded by several ponds (Stagno di BrebĂ©is and Stagno di Maestrale) where marvelous pink flamingos can be spotted. The Porto Pino beach area is well equipped with sun umbrellas, bars, bathrooms and water sports opportunities such as surfing or scuba diving. The sea at Porto Pino beach is crystal clear and shallow, ideal for families with children or for those who’d like to walk along the long shore. The walk from the parking lot to the beach will take you approximately 5 minutes. Spiaggia di Porto Pino can get quite busy during high season, head south towards Spiaggia delle Dune if you feel like having a bit more serenity.
