The pirate bays: Porto Ferro

Once you reach the bay of Porto Ferro, it will be difficult for you not to gaze in wonder at the beauty of its features: delineated by three Spanish watchtowers, this is one of the most authentic, untamed beaches to be found anywhere along the Coral Riviera.

 

You will recognise this bay by its unmistakable red-tinged sand and for the sea stacks that surround it – those on the right being particularly tall.

 

Behind the beach, there is a thick pine forest replete with an intricate array of paths, dunes and Mediterranean scrub, leading to Lake Baratz, Sardinia’s only natural lake.

 

Here you are sure to enjoy the specific climate and landscapes that have always marked this beach out. It has always been the destination of choice for lovers of beach sports.

 

Indeed, it is one of the favourite beaches of surfers, since the sea off this beach is surfable even in relatively high winds, because – in contrast to other beaches in northern Sardinia – Porto Ferro can cope easily with sea storms, mitigating their force through its unusual topography.
