Cala Brandinchi

Cala Brandinchi

Cala Brandinchi is one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. There's probably no argument about that.

Choose the best hotel with a sea view

Its incredibly blue and shallow water and snow-white sand have earned it the nickname "Little Tahiti".

Facilities and beach design

The surrounding beach is scented with low pine trees and grasses growing out of the dunes, while the sea itself is ideal for families with children. The water is shallow and very calm, the bottom is beautifully sandy and the beach, 700 metres long, is large enough

The beach facilities are plentiful and include several bars, sunbed and umbrella rentals as well as kayak and pedal boat rentals. Overall, however, the environment is peaceful despite the large number of visitors in high season.

About 50 metres south of Cala Brandinchi is the equally beautiful Lu Impostu beach.

Beach entrance fees and reservations

Both Cala Brandinchi and Lu Impostu beaches are accessible by reservation only, from 1 June to 30 September.
