Holidays in Baja Sardinia: beaches and things to see
Baja Sardinia is in Northern Sardinia, at the northern edge of the Costa Smeralda peninsula, west of Porto Cervo. Baja Sardinia is now one of the most famous seaside destinations, thanks to the wide range of services offered to tourists, its beaches, as well as the bars and nightclubs that liven up the summer nights.
Originally known as Battistoni, Baja Sardinia was built around Cala Battistoni beach after the Costa Smeralda tourist boom. Being a seaside destination, the majority of the attractions of Baja Sardinia revolve around water sports, thanks to the location of its beaches, exposed to the wind and currents that attract surfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts.
Boat tours are certainly the best way to explore Baja Sardinia and Northern Sardinia. Many boats depart daily from tourist ports and harbors such as Porto Cervo, Baja Sardinia, Cala Bitta, Cannigione and Palau. A boat tour of the Maddalena Archipelago is an absolute must.
And that’s not all, for those who love trekking we recommend visiting the Capo Ferro peninsula, in front of which are the islands of Cappuccini and Biscia. For those who love biking, Baja Sardinia and the surrounding area have a wide range of paths, mule tracks and trails. Baja Sardinia also offers entertainment.
The Aquadream water park is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area, where you can have fun between slides and water games, or relax in the big jacuzzi pools.
During the summer there are plenty of bars and night clubs that liven up the nights of Costa Smeralda. The most famous ones are the Ritual and the Phi Beach in Baja Sardinia.
Baja Sardinia’s most beautiful beaches
As all the beaches in Costa Smeralda, the ones in Baja Sardinia too feature thin sand and crystal clear waters.
Among the most beautiful beaches in and around Baja Sardinia we recommend: Cala Battistoni, the beach around which Baja Sardinia was born, a turquoise mirror of water. Equipped with many facilities.
Cala Bitta, a small natural cove with a light blue sea and a small harbor.
