Holiday in Alghero

Alghero extends towards the edge of a wide bay on the North-West coast of Sardinia. With a coastline of 80 km, that goes from Capo Caccia to Spiaggia di Poglina, Alghero is the touristic heart of the Riviera del Corallo. The airport of Alghero Fertilia has opened the low-cost flight season and is currently connected with flights to the whole of Europe, thus making Alghero a year-round holiday destination.
In Alghero we can find one of the longest sandy littorals of Sardinia.
Lido di San Giovanni which extends from Alghero over approximately 5 Km. towards Fertilia, to then take the name of Maria Pia. From Fertilia we arrive to the little beach of Punta Negra and from there, only 2 Km. away, you arrive at the two busiest and best known coastlines of Alghero.
Lazzaretto, with a tower overlooking the bay, and Le Bombarde; not forgetting La Dragunara, and Tramariglio. Further on we will arrive to Baia di Porto Conte, Mugoni, La Stalla, Sant’Imbenia, Porticciolo, Pischina Salida, Cala Viola, Porto Ferro e Capo Caccia.

Alghero is full of history that becomes palpable in every building: from the Torre del Portal along the fortresses, to the Torre de Sant Jaume, bordering the coast of Colombo, or the Torre de l’Esperò Reial, also known as Torre Sulis, the magnificent Catalonian walls which enclose the historical centre, and last but not least, the necropolis di Anghelu Ruju and the nuraghe di Palmavera, in the area of the Lazzaretto beach.
