The beach of Torre di Barì is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in eastern Sardinia. It stretches for several kilometres like a golden strip until it collides, to the north, with the basaltic massif of Teccu.

The Spanish Tower dominates the granite promontory that divides the beach into two parts. The one to the south, once reserved for women, known as Mari de is femminas, is made up of grey pebbles and fine sand. The one to the north, known as Mari de is ominis, is characterised by coarse-grained sand of a light ochre colour.

If there is a unique setting in which to witness one of the most evocative sunsets you have ever seen, this is certainly it. As the sun sets, endless shades of pink, purple and orange blend together, blurring the lines between sea and sky. Try it to believe.

Particularly appreciated for the cleanliness of its sea, this locality has received, together with the stretch that introduces the volcanic block of Teccu, called Bucca e Strumpu, the Blue Flag 2021, a certification that rewards not only the excellent state of the waters, but also the quality of the services offered.

Four lifeguard and first-aid towers are placed along the shoreline as far as the portion of Sa Marina that marks the beginning of Planargia beach to the south. They are operational from June to September and are equipped with Job chairs. Practical access walkways are located at all the main entrances to the sea.

A bau beach is located in the stretch known as Il Fico, offering the possibility for those travelling with animals to enjoy this paradise. The daily beach cleaning service guarantees bathers a healthy and clean environment. 

This place is also popular with families because of its characteristic pine forest, a real panacea during the hottest hours of the day, which surrounds the entire length of the beach, providing shade and silence for a picnic or nap. 

Beach volleyball and snorkelling are the most popular sports.

PLANARGIA Bari Sardo

Planargia beach, Blue Flag 2021, is the ideal place to switch off your mobile phone and finally sunbathe in total silence. It stretches like a majestic expanse of pale sand for about 3 km from the beaches of Foddini and Tramalitza, straddling Cardedu and Bari Sardo to the stretch known as Sa Marina. 

It stretches northwards, parallel to a quiet and welcoming pine forest. The grain of the sandy shore is medium but, towards the shore, the shoreline is enriched with very white pebbles that give the waters all shades of blue and light blue. 

When the flat sea meets the colours of the early morning hours, this beach seems to light up, providing an absolutely unique spectacle. On days when the wind cools the sand, on the other hand, it becomes a must for wind and kite surfers.

Animal lovers need not worry, as, at the Torre beach, there is a “bau beach” available for four-legged friends in the part of the beach called Foxi.

The Planargia beach is, in fact, interrupted by the mouth, Foxi to be precise, of the Bau e Nì river, which manages to reach the sea during the winter season, turning this stretch of coastline into an ideal habitat for numerous species of fish and birds.

For those who seek an even deeper contact with this enchanting nature and want to do so by sunbathing in total freedom, here they can without any problem. In fact, the municipality of Barisardo has dedicated a portion of its beach to the practice of naturism. This area, named Mindeddu after the nearby nuraghe of the same name, lies between Foxi and Sa marina, and can be considered one of the very few naturist beaches in Sardinia to have been officially recognised.

CALE DI TECCU Bari Sardo

One of the lesser known but more surprising coastal attractions of the Bari Sardo area is certainly the stretch where the basaltic plateau of volcanic origin, known as Teccu, meets the sea. 

The Region of Sardinia has recently recognised this area as a R.I.N. Area, or Area of Relevant Naturalistic Interest. For this reason, the coastal strip extending from Bucca ‘e Strumpu to Punta Niedda is covered by a protection and preservation programme.

The magma’s collision with the sea and its subsequent cooling have singularly characterised this landscape, scattering it with veritable natural sculptures.

Perfectly hexagonal basalt columns that appear to be hand-cut give way to the so-called pillow lavas, sort of perfectly circular pools created by the explosion of lava bubbles. 

This stretch of coastline is thus indented into a number of coves that are unknown to most, but which, once reached after a short walk, offer an unexpected spectacle.

We are talking about the creeks of SAbba and S’Ulimu, Punta Su Mastixi and Punta Niedda, totally uncontaminated places, characterised by the lunar appearance of the very dark basalt that shapes these spaces. If you are looking for silence, solitude and only the sound of the sea, here is a more than valid alternative.

The rich, crystal-clear seabed, which abounds in coral reefs and poseidonia, is a unique attraction for diving, snorkelling and spearfishing enthusiasts.

Off the water, on the other hand, for trekking or cycling enthusiasts, this area is absolutely packed with nature trails to be discovered.

The Cea beach straddling the territory of Bari Sardo and Tortolì is one of the pearls of Ogliastra.
A kilometre of fine white sand bathed by an aqua-green sea is exactly what one expects when planning a holiday in Sardinia.
The vegetation that frames it, juniper trees in primis, is such that the visual space is as devoid of human intervention as in a classic Caribbean setting.

Particular to this beach are its famous red porphyry stacks called Is Iscoglius Arrubius. They are the symbol of the beach as they add to its charm and are, at the same time, the destination of the hardiest swimmers and most intrepid divers. Reaching these stone giants has become a real classic. Immortalising them is a must to preserve in a snapshot the memory of one of the most beautiful beaches in eastern Sardinia.

Cea is characterised by a very shallow seabed that is perfect for children. In fact, it recently received its first Green Flag, an award from Italian paediatricians for child-friendly beaches: shallow water, space between umbrellas, beach attendants, and activities for children and their parents.
Several bathing establishments are located along the beach, offering the possibility of renting pedal boats, canoes or other water fun.
