Beach description

Capo Ferrato - wild nature, beautifully peaceful beach

 At Capo Ferrato, the entire power of Sardinia is palpable: the wild rocky cape is a great place for hiking and calming the soul – and afterwards, its southern side awaits with Spiaggia di Portu Pirastu, an irresistibly tranquil beach perfect for relaxing and snorkelling. The special thing about this sandy beach with its tiny pebbles lies in the nature of the seabed – small, sandy patches alternate with flat, luminous stones and make the water shimmer in a kaleidoscope of colours. And around the picturesque rocky reefs, a magical underwater world awaits discovery.

To the left of the bay, pine forests lead along the cape, where pretty picnic benches invite you to enjoy a scenic break. Those yearning for complete quietude can climb to one of the most enchanting (yet rugged and very rocky) mini-bays in Capo Ferrato. Spiaggia di Portu Pirastu can either be reached by foot via Capo Ferrato from the north or conveniently by car via the SP97 all the way to the beach.

 

Location and surroundings

Beaches in detail

Feraxi beach in Muravera is a nice, 3 km long sandy beach away from the masses. The sea is easily accessible and the water is crystal clear. The dunes are covered with typical vegetation. There is parking, a kiosk and a beach bar. The beach is good for snorkelling, as the clear water is rich in fish.
Sardinia
Capo Ferrato lies secluded and almost isolated on the north end of Costa Rei. It offers superb little bays for those seeking privacy. As they are a little rocky, these beaches are less suitable for children. On the north end of the cape lie the natural pools of Feraxi and Colostrai, home to typical marsh wildlife.

A lovely section of beach in front of a resort with the same name is composed of rock formations and small sandy bays. It is protected by the Monte Turno hill to the south, which gives its name to the next section of beach.
