Heavenly beaches & best beaches in Sardinia Italy | Sardinia is a paradise. It’s a beautiful place for its culture and food but especially for its sea. In Sardinia, there are many of the best Italian beaches. Sand, clear and clear water are the characteristics of most of the best beaches in Sardinia.

Sardinia has really heavenly beaches. I have met people who once went to the Caribbean but who changed their destination once they got to know this extraordinary land.

Sardinia is definitely an island to explore, and if you have the chance, I advise you not to always stay at the same beach but to visit and enjoy more than one. Here are some beaches in Sardinia not to be missed.

When is the best time to go to Sardinia?

Sardinia is a beautiful island and, as we are seeing in this article, it is best known for its beautiful beaches and clear sea. 
That’s why the perfect time to go to Sardinia is summer: between June and the beginning of September when you can swim. 

If possible I would avoid August, especially the 2 central weeks, when most Italians go on holiday, all the beaches are crowded and prices are high. 

For me, therefore, the perfect period for your holidays in Sardinia is between mid-June and mid-July.

Can you go to Sardinia in April or May?

Sardinia is a beautiful island best known for its incredible beaches and clear sea. 
However, Sardinia also has some beautiful cities and towns to visit, so if you don’t necessarily want to go swimming, you can also visit Sardinia in spring. 

In this case you can visit Alghero, Castelsardo and Cagliari. 
If, on the other hand, you are looking for a destination for swimming in April, I recommend the Canary Islands, Tenerife for example.

Can you go to Sardinia in September?

Yes of course you can go to Sardinia in September but before choosing this month of the year it is better to make some considerations. 
In fact, you must consider the approaching change of weather and season if you want to take a beach holiday. 
If you go in September, it is better to choose the beginning of the month and, if possible the south of the island. 
If you go north after the second half of September it is likely that the weather does not allow you to swim as much as you would like and to enjoy the warmth of the sun.

Punta Molentis beach

Punta Molentis Beach is located in Villasimius. It is certainly one of the most beautiful beaches not only in southeastern Sardinia but also in all of Sardinia: it is a true paradise.

Punta Molentis beach conquers not for the breadth of its beach but for its clear waters and the air you breathe here, in this extraordinary place. The colors of the waters that bathe the beach of Punta Molentis dazzle and amaze.

Punta Molentis gives you real emotions and happiness on this beach. The sea water is not only transparent but has incredible colors; it has a deep blue color.

You can learn more about Punta Molentis Beach at the following post: “Punta Molentis beach in Villasimius Sardinia Italy“.

Mari Pintau Beach

Mari Pintau is a beautiful beach in the South East of Sardinia, about 30 minutes by car from Cagliari. The landscape that you can observe while you are in Mari Pintau is very wild and characteristic of Sardinia.

Mari Pintau beach is set between two promontories. More precisely on the right you have the profile of three rocky promontories covered with Mediterranean scrub, green if it is not too dry due to drought.

On the left, however, a single promontory that acts as a divider. This promontory is also made up of rock and is covered in the greenery of wild Mediterranean scrub. This natural conformation means that the beach of Mari Pintau remains isolated from the rest of the southern coast of Sardinia, despite being an averagely long beach.

At this beach, the transparency of the water is positively striking, even with slightly rough seas. When you are in the water, it is a thrill to see the sea sparkle and to be able to see the bottom clearly.
