There is nothing more amusing for a small child than spending time to build wonderful sand castles and picking up shells and little coloured stones on the beach. Well, they won’t be disappointed in Orosei and its 2km white sandy beach which is within walking distance from the town. Please remember: taking sand, stones, etc. from the beach is strictly forbidden in Sardinia. 

The beaches provide all possible services and amenities for a comfortable family stay. Deck chars, umbrellas, etc. are available to rent. There is also wheelchair access to the beach. 

There are plenty of other fabulous beaches and coves around which are great for families with small kids or for those looking for an active holiday break. 

Among the most popular are: Cala Liberotto, Cala Ginepro, and Osalla beach. All have crystal clear sea water and are very clean and unspoiled. Probably the best beach for small kids is “Sa Curcurica” and Cala Ginepro which have shallow water and a pine forest behind them that provides great shelter for picnics during the hot summer days. 

A few minutes drive from the town centre towards the North coast there is another gorgeous and unspoiled beach called Bidderosa Oasis. This is a protected natural area where access is restricted to preserve the flora and fauna of this unspoiled coastline. Crystal clear sea is guaranteed with shallow water, pine trees, hundred years old juniper trees and wild Mediterranean vegetation. This is a real paradise for adults and young children which we recommend you to visit if you are looking for a day away from the crowds and want to reconnect with Nature.
