Porto Ferro

The beach of Porto Ferro, the northern border of the Corallo riviera, stretches for around 2 km, dominated by three Spanish look-out towers dating back to the XVII century. It is covered by ochre-coloured sand whose grains at times are mixed with shells: there are rocky outcrops here and there. The beautiful bay attracts a great number of beach-goers every year for various reasons. First of all for its beauty, given the clear crystalline waters which pervade the wide inlet, playing with the sandy shore and the trachyte rocks. Then we should remember that the beach is framed by a magnificent stretch of green, the pine grove that reaches as far as the nearby lake of Baratz, the only natural lake in the whole of Sardinian.

Come arrivare

Porto Ferro is found in the place with the same name, in the commune of Sassari, and is reachable along the 55 bis, turning at the signs for Porto Ferro.


Set in a spectacular position, the beach of Porto Ferro has a large and spacious car park where camper vans can also stay; the only way to travel for people who like to spend their holidays, moving around from place to place in absolute freedom. This is the same spirit that moves campers who can find a camping area here in the bay. When the sea is moved by the wind, it provides a host of emotions for surfers and wind-surfers, while on calm days it is a great idea to hire a “patino” boat to explore this wonderful stretch of coast. Moreover the sea which abounds with fish, is a favourite destination for scuba-divers. The beach of Porto Ferro has easy wheelchair access.
