We have been visiting Agentiera for 3 years and always take our friends to see this interesting abandoned town close to Alghero. It is finally coming alive and yesterday we visited the newly opened Silver Mine Museum. We were given a very interesting guided tour...More
We were planning to hit the beach after reading about it here. On arriving we realized that one reason they are empty is the pollution cause of the mines. The have regulations about how often kids should swim there etc, so we figured it was...More
To speak about Sardinia is to speak of the most beautiful and surprising island of the Mediterranean, with a perfect fusion between sea and mountain, full of traditions, history, details, curiosities and a spectacular gastronomy. La Argentiera, located very close to Sassari and Alghero, is...More

In summer 2015 we travelled all around Sardinia by car and this was honestly the best beach that we found due to 2 factors - it was surprisingly empty for an Italian beach so you could enjoy your space and the waves were super cool....More
We went to this beach on a hot saturday and it could not have been better! Compared to the many overly crowded Sardinian beaches, this was a nice surprise. It is a bit hard to reach, and there isn't much around, but it is a...More
