Nestled between the beautiful Cala di Monte Turno to the north and Cala Sinzias to the south, it has featured in prestigious magazines as being one of the most beautiful sections of the Mediterranean. The San Pietro marina is a broad and very extensive beach that contributes to the spectacular coastline of Castiadas, a jewel and tourist resort in Sarrabus, to the south-east of the island. The expanse of more than three kilometres of fine, golden sand borders a clear sea with iridescent shades ranging from emerald green to turquoise. Close to the shore, the seabed is sandy, immediately becoming rather deep. Being wider, it is perfect for snorkelling and spectacular scuba diving in search of groupers or colonies of soft corals thanks to the diving centres in the area. Much of the coastline is unencumbered, with some spaces being occupied by resorts and restaurants. You can rent beach umbrellas and bathing equipment and avail of all the services at your disposal. Behind is a lush naturalistic oasis of Mediterranean scrub. On the promontory that borders the beach stands the Nuraghe Gibe Truttiri.
