A series of tiny coves and inlets, now sandy but once pebbly, enclosed and hidden by cliffs and flat, pink rocks, on which you can sit and sunbathe comfortably. Cala Bona gets its name from the fortunate ‘protected’ position in which it is located, which has always been a calm and safe haven for small boats. It is one of the coastal gems of Alghero, less than a kilometre south of the old town centre, along the provincial scenic road leading to Bosa, close to one of the most panoramic parts of the coastline, the hill of Balaguer.

The little coves have dark, large-grained sand mixed with pebbles and the sea is transparent and sparkling with green and sky blue, thanks to the reflections of the sun on the deep, rocky seabed.
