Stretching along Sardinia’s southeastern seafront, the Costa Rei extends from Cala Sinzias, about 25km north of Villasimius, to a rocky headland known as Capo Ferrat. Its lengthy beaches are stunning with soft, pearly-white sands and glorious azure waters.
Approaching from Villasimius, the first beach you hit is Cala Sinzias, a pretty sandy strip some 6km south of the main Costa Rei resort. The resort is typical of many in Sardinia, a functional holiday village of villas, shops, bars and eateries that’s dead in winter but packed in the summer holiday months.
North of the resort, the beaches continue up to the road’s end at Capo Ferrato, beyond which drivable dirt trails lead north.
