The dream beaches of Tortoli in detail:

Lido di Orrì

Like a string of glistening pearls: Along Lido di Orrì, sun worshippers will find gorgeous beaches covering a total of 16 kilometres. Here, small, secluded bays await discovery, whilst the extensive beaches are perfect for the kids to splash around to their heart's content in the shallow water. With many bars, restaurants and boat hire, the infrastructure also caters to families, although the natural beauty of Lido di Orrì offers something for everyone. 


Four kilometres of paradise: Cea is a bright golden beach with excellent water quality. The gently sloping beach with crystal-clear water is ideal for families with children. A particular highlight is the view of the red, shimmering rocks Is Scoglius Arrubius, which is also a dream location for divers.


Coccorocci is a musical beach in all respects: the tiny, multicoloured stones on Sardinia’s largest pebble beach create their very own melody in the water. The view of the Monti Ferru and Cartucceddu mountain ranges is also fascinating. The crystal-clear water and juniper trees skirting the beach make Coccorocci a truly extraordinary beach. A car park is available at the beach.

Spiaggia di Basaura

Beach paradise behind the old Tortoli runway. The charismatic Spiaggia di Basaura is a bright yellow sandy beach with crystal-clear water. Given its relatively quick drop into the sea, this beach is less suitable for children. A beach bar guarantees hours of relaxation, whilst dog owners can enjoy the sun and sea with their four-legged friends on a separate stretch of beach.

Beaches in detail

The extensive beach of Orrì is without doubt one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia.

There are a variety of beach bars and restaurants.
This little bay of fine golden sand is surrounded by smooth rocks and juniper woods. The easily accessible beach is located south of the main beach of Lido di Orrì.
The beach Foxi Lioni is about 1 Km long. It is a fine, white sand beach with smooth granite rocks and crystal-clear water. It joins south at the Lido di Orrì. In the summer months you can rent sun umbrellas, sun beds and pedal boats and at the beach bar you can buy fresh drinks and snacks. The beach is well suited for families with children, because it slopes slowly into the shallow sea. Take the SS 125 in direction Lido Orrì; pass the Spiaggia dei Milanesi and continue to the beach of Foxi Lioni.
