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 Rossa: Spiaggetta del Porto and Spiaggia Longo. The fresh clean waters are a magnet for scuba divers, snorkelers and swimmers.
Spiaggetta del Porto
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.
