About Bosa Marina

The beach of Bosa Marina (Spiaggia di Bosa Marina) is located in front of the village of Bosa, in the province of Oristano, west Sardinia. It’s quite a wide beach (up to 130 meters!) with a total length of nearly 900 meters. It faces south-west, featuring a particularly fascinating view if you look at the imposing Aragonese tower (La Torre di Bosa) that dominates the landscape, situated on top of the Isola Rossa hill. La Torre di Bosa was built to defend the coastline and the mouth of the river Temo.

Spiaggia di Bosa Marina is well-equipped with beach chairs and umbrellas, and offers several establishments nearby where you can enjoy a cool drink or a light snack or lunch. Bosa Marina is suitable for familes with children, but don’t forget to wear slippers on the beach as its reddish sands can get very hot during high season.
