White sand and turquoise sea with shallow waters. These are the characteristics that have made La Caletta beach one of the most picturesque in Sardinia. Also nicknamed the big beach of Siniscola, La Caletta stretches no less than 5 kilometres along the coast of the Gulf of Orosei and is a must-see for travellers to the north-east coast of the island.

La Caletta beach stretches from the small village of the same name to the fishing town of Santa Lucia. Its seabed is shallow and sandy, ideal for a day at the beach with children or for a relaxing weekend with friends. The bay is well connected to the village and is bordered in places by long, shady pine forests , where you can take shelter in the hottest hours.

As a beach often blessed with favourable winds, La Caletta is also popular with water sports lovers. Kitesurfing and windsurfing glide over the water at all hours of the day and give a lively touch to the whole setting. The beach is also equipped for every need: there are sailing schools, Sup rental, diving courses and organised dinghy trips. 

Nothing seems to be missing from this enchanting bay on the east coast of Sardinia. In fact, a few steps away from La Caletta beach, there are numerous bars and restaurants where you can enjoy traditional Sardinian cuisine. If you want to refresh yourself and enjoy an aperitif overlooking the sea, you should definitely try El Barrio del Mar, a location close to the beach where you can have a drink and enjoy the sunset. There is no shortage of breakfast bars and ice cream parlours, among which I recommend the Gelateria Artigianale Non Solo Coni and theOceaniabar, ideal for coffee and a croissant in the morning before starting your day at the beach.


La Caletta is one of thewhitest beaches in Sardinia, a true gem to visit in summer but also out of season. But how do you get to La Caletta beach?

Parking at La Caletta beach is located just outside the small village and costs 1 euro per hour.

Among the white beaches of Sardinia, La Caletta is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating. Sport, relaxation and crystal-clear sea make this bay an unmissable summer destination, but also an excellent starting point for exploring the surrounding areas. In fact, there are numerous other attractions in the surroundings that are worth a visit, such as the famous Confetti Beach, Capo Comino and the most famous Berchida.

Important if it is your first time in Sardinia

If it is your first time in Sardinia, it is important for you to know that most of the beaches are free, so you will be surrounded by white sand, mountains, wild nature and crystal-clear sea. At the same time, however, for the same reason, you will not find various equipment such as deckchairs and umbrellas. So I advise you to take a parasol with you if you don't want to get burnt.
