La Pelosa - Stintino
One of the most famous beaches in Italy, as it's called the Caraibbean of the Mediterranean Sea, thanks to the white sand an to the low water that contributes to the "swimming-pool" look.
Unfortunately the beach is not so big and very crowded, so avoid it in the weekends and arrive early (8.30-8.45 AM) in the morning to find a parking and a place where to put your sun umbrella.
It's also better to leave the beach not later than 4 PM to avoid heavy traffic.
There are many bars along the main street.
It takes around 45 minutes by car to reach the beach in normal traffic conditions. From June to September there's also a daily bus service managed by company SardaBus
La Pelosa is a limited capacity beach. From June 1st to September 30th only 1.500 people per day can access the beach. Reservations to be made in advance at www.lapelosastintino.com .
The price is € 3,50 for adults while it's free of charge for children under 12 years old.
It's compulsory to use mats under the beach towel to preserve the sand. You can find the mats near the entrance of the b&b.
