The Baunei coast in first place, Chia in fifth, Gallura in seventh, Baronia in eleventh, the Sinis Peninsula in fourteenth and Planargia in eighteenth. It means the top step of the podium, no fewer than three coastlines in the top seven of the 5 Vele awards, and another three in the top eighteen. In 2022 Sardinia is once again the leader in the Touring Club and Legambiente ranking and confirms the six coastal stretch already awarded in previous years. The value of the island's coastline has been so widely recognised by experienced travellers, who are accustomed to the beauty of the world, and those whose passion and profession are committed to safeguarding the quality of the natural environment. It is no coincidence that one out of three Italian seaside places awarded with the 5 Vele is in Sardinia.
The Touring Club and Legambiente thus celebrate the Sardinian sea, rewarding local communities' ingrained tendency to respect their land and the island's vocation for welcoming and hosting. Their highest recognition goes to enchanting places, some well known, others waiting to be discovered. From north to south, from east to west of the island, no stretch of coast is excluded.
