About Spiaggia di Is Arenas
Is Arenas beach (Spiaggia di Is Arenas) is located just south of Torre del Pozzo, approximately 2 kilometers south of the small beach of S’Archittu.

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.
