More dream beaches on Costa Rei
Piscina ReiFor everyone who loves the quieter life. In front of the Piscina Rei lagoon, which hosts many species in winter, lies a relaxed beach area. There is a slightly steeper drop into the water here than elsewhere on Costa Rei, but the sea is equally as fascinating as it shimmers in a thousand shades of blue. Lounger hire is available, as are some bars, albeit a couple of beats slower. The beach is reached via one of the many turn-offs along the road to Capo Ferrato.
Scoglio di PeppinoA rock as a landmark: Scoglio di Peppino is a mighty elevation from the sea that gently separates the beach from Spiaggia di Santa Giusta. This gently sloping dream beach forms the southern end of Costa Rei, offering a fantastic panoramic view through fragrant maquis and gnarled juniper trees. Scoglio di Peppino can be reached by car via the SP 18, car parking at Santa Giusta.
Location and surroundings
Beaches in detail
Cala Sinzias is situated between Villasimius and Costa Rei. Framed by high mountains, gnarled trees and macchia which reaches as far as the beach. The heavenly water has been recognized by the Goletta Verde as the cleanest of the Mediterranean Sea. Outside the high season, the bay is an oasis of silence. In the summer there are the beach bars Tamatete and Maklas (see Beach Bars).
Small bathing bay close to the road that goes from Costa Rei to Villasimius (SP 18) at about km 11, opposite the island of Serpentara. The sand is white and the water shallow.
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.
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.
Small bay framed by flat rocks at the northern end of Costa Rei. Grey sand and pebble beach, less suitable for children. A pine forest behind the beach offers shade from the midday sun.
The Costa Rei beach is about 8 km long and is characterized by its fine white to yellow sand and crystalline water. Worth mentioning is the characteristic granite rock Scoglio di Peppino. The Costa Rei beach was voted the fifth most beautiful in the world in the Lonely Planet.
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.
