  • It seems to be inside a postcard romantic spot. Her specialty is the color of the sea that looks painted. In fact in Sardinian mari pintau means sea painted

  • Mari Pintau is one of the most breathtaking beaches I have ever been. Is an authentic slice of paradise in Sardinia. Cleaning the beach is pebbly and sand.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia. An earthly paradise, crystal clear water, a scent of natural vegetation. Downside there are few parking lots, so get there early or early afternoon as second round that by the change at first. But there are some swimmers who go there from morning till sunset. Which I highly recommend. A sunset that takes your breath away. Recommended for all tourists, go there at least once in their lifetime. By boat, by car or motorbike, will be a wonderful experience. In summer it is equipped with all facilities. EED for who brings just the costume and towel.
