As soon as your feet touch the sand, you’ll feel like you’re inside a picture postcard. Fine, soft, snow-white, glistening grains of sand, facing a sea reflecting shades of turquoise and emerald green, with reddish granite cliffs to the sides and a crown of fragrant Mediterranean greenery behind it. This is the enchanting setting of Rena Bianca, one of the iconic beaches along the northeastern coast of the Island, 17 kilometres from Olbia and a few steps from the seaside villages of San Pantaleo and Portisco. From the beach, you can admire a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Cugnana, embellished on your left by the islands of Soffi and Mortorio.

Its name refers to the white sand, the beach’s most obvious feature, but when you observe the water’s edge you will notice hints of pink, coming from little grains of quartzite.
