The crystal clear sea of Cala Brandinchi
Cala Brandinchi is our favourite beach and you will undoubtedly be impressed. Situated in a beautiful wild natural setting, surrounded by pine trees, with its white sand and shallow crystal clear waters reminiscent of Polynesia, it is also known as “little Tahiti“. The beach is 1 km long but only a few meters wide and it’s always very busy from July to early September. In any case, it is a beach not to be missed because due to its characteristics, it is known as one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia.
How to reach Cala Brandinchi
The beach is located 8 km from San Teodoro; along the SS125 (San Teodoro – Olbia), you will find a crossroads on your right with a sign indicating “Capo Coda Cavallo” and “Cala Brandinchi”. Turn there, and after 500 meters, you will notice the Cala Brandinchi / Lu Impostu junction on your right with a small kiosk where you can take the parking ticket (it is quite expensive) and proceed for another kilometre on a dirt road before reaching the beach. If you continue straight ahead, you will arrive at the south car park of Cala Brandinchi beach and Lu Impostu beach; There was another car park at the north tip of the beach, but it’s closed at the moment (2021). The south parking lot can only hold is 250 vehicles.
