One of the most famous and most photographed beaches of Sardinia is the Pelosa Beach in Stintino, a municipality located on the north-west coast of Sardinia.
The colors of the sea, a truly incredible blue – turquoise, its unmistakable tower practically on the sea, the white beach are a true cult of the Sardinian seascape. An island in the middle of the Mediterranean that, as in the case of this beach, has colors comparable to those of the Caribbean.
Stintino is a village of maritime origins that in recent years has had a very important tourist development but, in its historical center and close to the port, you can still find again a suggestive and characteristic urban environment.
Stintino is a fundamental stop for those who want to go to the nearby island of Asinara, the national park of incomparable beauty that is just in front.
It is precisely from this village that the ferries depart, after a short journey in the middle of the blue and transparent sea, take visitors to the island of Asinara.
The beach of Stintino called the Pelosa is very famous because of the white sand and the very low seabed that, thanks to the clean sea, creates this amazingly colored picture. The vegetation that frames the beach is the typical Mediterranean where the green of junipers and tamarisks alternate with the colors of the oleander in bloom and other essences such as rosemary or the very rare and protected Centaurea horrida. The look on the horizon of the sea is immediately captured by the flat silhouette of the island Piana and, more the distance from the most impressive shape of the reliefs of the island of Asinara. An ancient 16th-century Aragonese tower, built on an islet reachable from the Pelosa Beach, completes this truly unique historical-naturalist picture.
The Pelosa beach is besieged by bathers every summer (in the month of August also 7.000 presences) and, for this reason, in order to ensure its protection and limit its erosion, we are thinking about the forms of flow regulation tourist. By now these precious and delicate ecosystems must be treated as works of art in museums. In fact they are works of art of nature and therefore we must preserve and protect them in the best way.
