Beach Daze at Isola Rossa | Sardinia, Italy

Isola Rossa or Red Island owes its name to the granite islet that lies in front of the harbour. Isola Rossa is a fisherman’s hamlet and retains its original characteristics despite the ongoing residential developments.

The area provides excellent holiday accommodations for families and for the romantic getaway. There are two main beaches in Isola RossaSpiaggetta del Porto and Spiaggia Longo. The fresh clean waters are a magnet for scuba divers, snorkelers and swimmers.

Spiaggetta del Porto

Spiaggia Longo

It was a wonderful afternoon at the beach today. After the maestrale that blew though here for a few days last week, it was finally nice to get some hot, hot weather.

In the distance is the Spanish Watch Tower of Isola Rossa. You can read more about this ancient tower by clicking here.

Isola Rossa is located in the northwestern part of Sardinia. It’s a fantastic family beach with plenty of fun activities to choose from. You will not be disappointed in an afternoon spent here.

How did you spend your day?

  5. All the pictures are wonderful but my favourite one is the one with the couple under the yellow umbrella. It really sends a message of relaxation in a beautiful place. It doesn’t get better than that. Thanks for sharing!

    I spent my day in record breaking heat in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada, with 10 in-laws staying for a week and my husband and three children…. Several of the clan went jet-boating down the Niagara Gorge to (near) the base of Niagara Falls, where several of the clan are currently watching the lights change over the Falls – remember changing the lights J Avventura??? Did a 4k Gorge hike with nephew and husband, followed by Alice Cooper/Iron Maiden outdoor concert in THE HEAT! Had two in-a-row very early fire calls, one winery tour,a fab supper with all of the clan, an in-house movie with select few (5 year old an 8 year old and husband). Finishing local bottle of cab sauv all by myself catching up on lil’ sis’ blog. That’s how I spent my day, AJ, thanks for asking! PS Did you ever notice Jennifer Avventura is AJ transposed?

    • What an awesome day! I can’t belive you did a 4k in the heat! I get myself out of bed around 6am to go for a 6k because after that it’s just too hot!

      Jet boating … still haven’t done that. Wine tours one too many…gulp 😉

      Thanks for catching up on my blog. And I had never thought about Jennifer Avventura as AJ..thanks for pointing that out.

      Miss you and love you all.
