A half-moon of sand, almost one kilometre long, that rises up towards a sea reflecting a thousand colours, surrounded by volcanic rocks and overlooked by lush Mediterranean vegetation. The beach of Le Bombarde is one of the gems in the territory of Alghero, as well as one of the most famous on the whole island, ten kilometres north of the town centre and just three kilometres from the district of Fertilia. It consists of fine, light sand with hints of ochre and it is washed by a sea with iridescent colours, ranging from green to blue. The sandy seabed slopes rapidly: the water is calm and transparent and is deep just a few metres from the water's edge. At the two ends, it is delimited by reddish rocks, while behind it there is a lush forest of maritime pines, eucalyptuses and Mediterranean shrubs. It is part of the regional park of Porto Conte, offering relief from the summer heat. Secluded and less frequented little coves are hidden in the vicinity. Furthermore, if you want to combine sea and archaeology, you will find the Nuragic complex of Palmavera not far from the beach.
