The Baunei coast in second place, Chia in fourth, Baronia in sixth, Gallura in eighth, Planargia in fourteenth and the new entry Sinis Peninsula in sixteenth. No fewer than four coastlines are in the top ten of the 5 Vele awards, with another two in the top twenty. In 2021 Sardinia is once again the leader in the Touring Club and Legambiente ranking and adds another coastal stretch to the five already awarded in previous years. The value of the island's coastline has been so widely recognised by experienced travellers, who are accustomed to the beauty of the world, and those whose passion and profession are committed to safeguarding the quality of the natural environment.The Touring Club and Legambiente thus celebrate the Sardinian sea, rewarding local communities' ingrained tendency to respect their land and the island's vocation for welcoming and hosting. Their highest recognition goes to enchanting places, some well known, others waiting to be discovered. From north to south, from east to west of the island, no stretch of coast is excluded.
