If you are a surfer and if you like the pristine beaches, then the beach of Porto Ferro is right for you…Our journey starts from Sassari. We follow the road SS291 from Sassari to Alghero and then continue on SP55bis. After a few kilometers we turn at the fork to Porto Ferro. The road takes us practically on the banks of the sea (a few hundred meters from the end of the road turn right and we are in a parking lot in the middle of the pine forest that reaches a few meters from the sea …).
The first thing you notice is the beauty of the bay we face: we can see the 3 beautiful ancient towers placed one on our left and the other 2 in front of us and in the midlle a sea of fantastic colors. The beach is virtually untouched and people took advantage. In fact, these days I just happened to be next to a couple of guys making out and then quietly bathed naked. Or surrounded by dogs who are brought to the beach by the owners (it is not an authorized beach …) and let loose to turn on their own, or even see groups of young people who organize a bonfire night. In short, they feel free!!!
Among all these people, you can also see groups of surfers who are preparing to sleep and then wake up at dawn on the beach and have fun with the first waves of the day. In fact, Porto Ferro as well as for its beauty is also known for the strong currents (there is a sign at the entrance of the beach that warns of danger) that make the beach a surfer’s paradise throughout the year.
