There's talcum powder-like sands and shallow turquoise waters on the agenda. Sardinia’s northwestern tip – and the area of Stintino in particular – is known for its first-rate beaches. You’ll head to La Pelosa Beach for around three hours of sun, sea and sand. Dip your toes in the water and watch as the colourful fish swim between your feet. And if you feel like venturing out further, you can grab a snorkel. This area’s part of the Asinara National Park, a protected marine preserve since 2002. The views are second to none – you’ve got the islands of Piana and Asinara in sight from the sands. Plus, the beach has sunbeds for hire and a handful of seafront restaurants and bars.
