TO VISIT : BEACHES

The province of Oristano is a true gem for landscape lovers thanks to the alternation of strips of white sand, quartz sand beaches and tall limestone cliffs (from Capo Mannu onward).

 

It is no coincidence that most of the territory is under environmental protection for its outstanding natural beauty.

 

Below, in sequential order, are the beaches from the northern side of Marina Torregrande, while here you will find the beaches of southern side of Marina di Torregrande.
