Praias das Ilha Giardinelli, em Sardenha, na Itália

Giardinelli Island Beaches, in Sardinia, in Italy

August 4, 2021 0 By Christian Gutierrez and Priscilla Gutierrez

The island of Sardinia in Italy has amazing beaches and here we are going to talk about the Giardinelli Island beaches, which is north of Sardinia, in the archipelago by La Maddalena.

Giardinelli is a small island, which has no hotel infrastructure, bars and restaurants is a preserved island with beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters with shades of blue.

A Ilha de Giardinelli is linked to Isle of the Magdalene over a bridge and Maddalena with the island of Sardinia, the way is via ferry boat, we stayed in this region for 4 days and on one of these days we stayed all day on these beaches.

as I said, the Island of Giardinelli and of Caprera are places without infrastructure, the entire hotel structure is in La Maddalena where we stayed in an aparthotel called Blu Residence Baita, very good, with kitchen, balcony and all the basics we needed, the owner is very helpful, he also offers tours of the beaches and islands and insists a little, but as we were in a rental car that we rented at the airport of Olbia, one of the main airports in Sardinia, we didn't take any walks with him, we went to all the beaches with the rental car.

Tip very important, as the beaches do not have light infrastructure, water and food.

What are the beaches of Giardinelli Island?

To reach the island's beaches, as soon as we crossed the bridge we stopped in a parking lot and from there we walked to the beaches, there's even a dirt road that gets closer to the beaches, but the path is very bad, with many holes, had cars that went, but we prefer to walk, even because the path is short. 20 minutes and a track at the end to reach the most beautiful beach that is Beach Octopus.

Beach Octopus

As we said, it is the prettiest beach on the island of Giardinelli and one of the prettiest in the archipelago of La Maddalena and Sardinia, along with two other beaches we visited the other day in Caprera Island, a Coticcio and in Napoletana.

A Beach Octopus (or what they call octopus Cliff) is named for having a huge rock that looks like an octopus head with its tentacles, some people also call the beach head Octopus (Capocchia d`u purpu), we stayed on this beach for the longest time because it is very beautiful.

The best time to go to the beach is in the morning, to arrive and find a good place and also because in the morning the sun's rays make the sea water more crystalline than in the afternoon.

Beach Alberello

Beach Alberello it's a very beautiful cove-shaped beach too., we stayed there in the afternoon when we went for a walk on other beaches.

Beach Porticciolo

It is the first beach on the island, a Porticciolo as well as Gemele is not very pretty, so don't waste time on it, stay in 3 first beaches we speak.
