This is the favourite beach of the inhabitants of Olbia, about eight kilometres from the town, on the road that leads to Golfo Aranci. Famous also as Puntale Lungo, La Playa di Pittulongu is a splendid and extensive ‘half-moon’ of very fine, white sand with a few stretches of small shells, especially near the water's edge, set between Punta Muriscinu and Punta Filiu. The water is shallow, with a sloping seabed, and it is perfect for families with children. On the sandy shore, there are beach establishments that offer you all the most useful services: facilities that can be accessed by the disabled, ample parking and beach equipment, pedalo and boat rentals. There are characteristic bars and restaurants with a view of the impressive island of Tavolara, overlooking the beach, highly frequented by windsurfing, diving and snorkelling enthusiasts.
