About Is Arenas

Is Arenas beach (La Spiaggia di Is Arenas) is located just south of Torre del Pozzo, approximately 2 kilometers south of the small beach of S’Archittu. With a total length of nearly 5.5 kilometers, it is one of the longest beaches of west Sardinia, making this beach very suitable for relaxing walks along the shore, preferably when the sun starts setting. As with other beaches in this area of Sardinia, the waters of this beach can be rather rough and have strong currents on windy days. Is Arenas is backed by a gorgeous pine forest (one of the largest patches of green on the island), and has a golf hotel, camping, and the Is Arenas Golf & Country Club nearby. On this beach you can enjoy complete privacy, with breathtaking sunsets at the end of your day and starry skies at night.

To get to Is Arenas, take the SP 292 from Oristano to Cuglieri, and once passed Riola Sardo, continue in the direction of the pinewood forest of Is Arenas. The beach of Is Arenas can be accessed via camping Nurapolis (Campeggio Nurapolis), or from the village of Torre del Pozzo.
