Summer is approaching!!! A selection of the best wild dream beaches in Sardinia

It is time to think about the best place to spend our summer holidays. After having written about the 5 best beaches in Sardinia, this week I would like to give you a special tip. Apart from the most popular, there is a large variety of hidden coves and wild beaches which are less known and frequented by tourists.

Why wild beaches are less frequented?
It is just because wild beaches don’t offer as many services as you can find in an equipped beach. Or maybe because the route to reach them is too winding or not smooth enough.

A winding route discourages, above all if you don’t have enough time at your disposal, if you usually get car-sick or if you have young children. But if you finally take courage with both hands, you stock up on sickness tablets you will not be disappointed. In just few minutes you will have forgotten the trouble of the journey.

Piscinas beach is popular for its dunes. They are among the biggest in Europe and have been declared World Heritage from Unesco. The sandy beach is about 7 Km long, the landscape you can see from the dunes is absolutely breathtaking.
