Mediterranean scents, an emerald green sea and soft white sand, mixed with colourful pebbles. Marina di Sorso, a small town a few kilometres from Sassari, is part of a seven-kilometre long beach, bordered by a forest of pine trees and junipers, and is the eastern continuation of the equally long, wide beach of Platamona. Together, they occupy a stretch of 15 kilometres - 10 to 30 metres wide - of the northwestern coast of the island. It is very close to the local inhabited areas: you can reach it from the scenic road that connects Porto Torres and Castelsardo or from Sorso along a specific spur road or from the capital Sassari, along the provincial road SP 60, known as Buddi.
The transparent water is mostly emerald green in colour reflecting shades of blue, while the sandy seabed slopes rapidly and the farthest point of the soft sand is dotted with lush, spontaneous vegetation: thistles, dwarf palms and sea daffodils. These characteristics make it one of the most popular beaches on the Sassari coast: from the sand, you can admire beautiful sunsets with the island of Asinara in the background.
