Stintino

Lined with quaint, pastel coloured houses, historic Stintino offers a taste of the authentic Italian lifestyle. Deep inlets are home to two harbours, which are lined with charming restaurants specialising in unique fish dishes, local to the area. There are many activities on offer, and the annual boat race at the end of August is one of the highlights. The area is renowned for some of the best beaches in Italy, particularly La Pelosa, which has fine white sand and crystal azure sea, more typical of tropical locations. The island of Asinara is worth a visit as it’s the areas national park and home to various wildlife, or in the other direction, Alghero offers another sandy beach as well as plenty of boutique shops, cafes, restaurants and bars throughout the cobbled streets.
