Next on our coastal trip around the Costa S’meralda is the gorgeous little sandy spot of Spiaggia del Principe.
Spiaggia del Principe, also known as Portu Li Coggi, is one of the best beaches of Costa Smeralda.
The Prince’s Beach is aptly named as it was the favourite beach of Karim Aga Khan IV, the playboy prince who fell in love with the stunning Sardianian coastline and founded the Costa S’meralda.
The beach is located near the small village of Cala di Volpe, between Romazzino beach and Capriccioli.
It will take you a good ten-minute walk along a rocky path before you’ll get rewarded with an arc of stunning white sand, lovely clear water and ever-changing hues of turquoise.
Principe Beach is about 250 meters long in total and is divided by rocks in the middle that stretch out into the ocean.
White, pink, green, emerald green, blue, turquoise and sky blue colours all combine to make this little beach pack a huge punch!
There’s a small bar that serves lunch, ice cream and cold drinks. Much needed refreshments in the baking heat of the Sardinian sun.
It’s a definite must for the avid beach lover and a lovely little spot for watching the waves. It gets chock a block in high season though so visiting in October is perfect.
