North of Alghero’s yacht-jammed marina, Via Garibaldi sweeps up to the town's long, sandy beaches: Spiaggia di San Giovanni and, beyond that, Spiaggia di Maria Pia. Nicer still are the beaches further around the coast near Fertilia. In Alghero you can hire umbrellas and sunloungers for about €15 per day, as well as windsurfers and canoes.
