Rough seas and windswept sands

Onwards with our tour of the Costa Smeralda coastline and this time we’re treated to the sea at its windswept best.

The water has transformed into a boiling, seething mass of navy fury topped with foamy white horses at Cala Liccia.

To get to this empty, wind whipped shingle beach we have to do a far bit of scrambling down rocky paths.

The beaches in Sardinia are not always accessible but that makes it even more rewarding when you finally arrive on them!

The navy water contrasts nicely with the weathered orange tones of the weather beaten rocks.

Onwards in the car until we spot another picturesque spot. The beach at Punta Capaccia.

Naturally I can’t help but be drawn towards the water like a magnet to metal so we end up picking our way down to the sands.

it’s rather blustery now so the effect is slightly less glamorous Italian retreat and more good old Blighty beach!

Next on our beach day blitz are the stunning beaches of Spiaggia Del Romazzino,  Spiaggia del Principe and Spiaggia Capriccioli.

This island just keeps getting better and better!
