The once-forbidden 'pearl' on the coast of Villaputzu: within the shared military shooting range of the Salto di Quirra there is a six-kilometre stretch of light sand with medium and large grains, mixed with some smooth pebbles, edged by large dunes, which plunges into crystal clear waters in shades of intense blue. The long and wide beach of Murtas, also known as Quirra beach and s'Acqua Durci (in the stretch of beach where the Quirra river flows), perhaps one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean, has been partly closed for twenty years. Since 2016, the free and accessible area has been extended, although only in the summer (from June to September). The small, northern of the beach is reserved for the staff of the base, while the rest is open for you to enjoy.
