FUILEMARE beach (175 yards walk)
Enchanting beach of pure white sand, gently sloping, with crystal clear water, in a protected cove within the gulf; Never overcrowded, not being run by a hotel. Perfect if you prefer the sound of the waves to loudspeakers and organized entertainment. The natural beach, surrounded by the green Mediterranean shrubland and pine trees, is crossed by a small seasonal stream in the winter months. Fuilemare lets you enjoy the sun from dawn to sunset, as there are no hills to the west blocking the evening sun like in most other beaches in the gulf.
Two small restaurants, two bars, a newsagent, a grocery store, a coach stop (for servicese to Olbia and central Sardinia)are within walking distance.

Less than 3 miles drive north along the coastal road is the entrance to the protected wildlife area “BIDEROSA”. This area covers 5 beaches (managed by the forest authority, with a limited number of visitors). Tranquillity is the main feature of the 5 enchanting beaches. The pearl grey sand is of the finest kind, the turquoise and blue water is crystal clear. In the shallow water you’ll enjoy a bemusing light show of reflections that you won’t see elsewhere. The surrounding Mediterranean shrubland and a number of streams that depending on the season will be dry, or flowing into the sea, makes an interesting walk through the Maquis.
