About Torre Argentina

From the center of Bosa, head north-west in the direction of Alghero for about 10 kilometers, and you’ll discover a beach that goes under the name of Torre Argentina (Spiaggia di Torre Argentina). This beach consists of a series of bays of a few hundred meters each. Facing south, they all offer views of Isola de Sas Crabas, or “The Island of the Goats”, a small rocky island situated just 50 meters off the coast.

The beaches have coarse sands with pebbles of various sizes, mostly of a pinkish and reddish color. The surrounding flat rocks give this area almost a lunar quality. Spiaggia di Torre Argentina is frequently visited by Bosa locals. It’s a nice place for a little hiking, as the area is scattered with several crumbling buildings, testimony of the activity of silver and manganese mines that operated in this area. Torre Argentina is also a popular destination for those who’d like to go scuba diving and snorkelling. The parking area at the beach is suitable for campers.
