The dream beaches of Muravera in detail:
Spiaggia di ColostraiSpanning two kilometres, this beach reveals a stunning contrast of colours: the sand is fine and light grey and gently merges with the sea, which sparkles in a thousand colours as the sun dances on its surface. Behind it, rich green, fragrant maquis shrubs live side by side with the blue Colostrai lagoon. In summer, visitors can hire loungers, shades and pedal boats, and a bar is available for refreshments.
Spiaggia di San GiovanniLong, narrow and peaceful, Spiaggia di San Giovanni is a magnificent, long strip of sand where relaxation is guaranteed – even during high season. Nestled between the sea and an arm of the Flumendosa river, this idyllic beach is a particular hit with those in search of some peace and quiet. San Giovanni is easy to reach following the signs on the SS125. There is a car park directly at the beach.
Location and surroundings
Beaches in detail
Feraxi - San Priamo
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.
Porto Pirastu - Capo Ferrato
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.
