Very close to the town centre, you can get to it on foot with a backpack and beach towel: the pleasant walk along the ‘Passeggiata Busquet’ promenade will take you to a stretch of soft, golden sand that gently enters the shallow, clear waters of the emerald green, turquoise and blue sea. The Lido of San Giovanni, Alghero’s beach, is one of the most popular and famous tourist centres in Sardinia. It will captivate you with its wide sandy shore beach with a view of the promontory of Capo Caccia, three kilometres long and delimited to the south by the tourist port and to the north by the marine hospital. Its border with the town is highlighted by a spectacular row of palm trees. It is the Sardinian-Catalan city (known as Barceloneta) beach par excellence, very close to the historical, cultural and architectural attractions in the old town centre and ideal for tourists seeking relaxation.
