Alghero

Alghero and its territory, also known as the Coral Riviera, is a must see for those who want to visit Sardinia and for those who love sailing.

The Gulf of Alghero is a large natural bay, spanning approximately 70 km, from Capo Marargiu, situated slightly above Bosa, to Capo Caccia. The bay, thanks to the geographical conformation of the coast, offers various points of landing and anchorage, and is exposed to the Mistral, the Libeccio and the Ponente. For the west winds and the Mistral, it is possible to find shelter beneath the Tower of Capo Galera (or of the Lazzaretto) just in front of the homonymous beach, or along the promontory of Capo Caccia inside the Bay of Porto Conte.

Here you will find all the landings in the Gulf of Alghero

Alghero’s port is situated just under the ramparts of the town, allowing you to reach the historical centre in just 2 minutes, from every anchorage point. There are various locations to moor, managed by different companies. There are also many piers with floating stalls, and several types of boats available for hire.

You can also moor in the the Port of Fertilia which is a channel harbor connected to the cove behind. This port allows for good shelter. Its depth is approximately 3 metres, however this isn’t typically an issue.

struttura porto di porto conte

Along the coast, after Punta Giglio, you will arrive in the Porto Conte bay, where you will find the small marina of Porto Conte. This area provides necessary ammenities such as water, electricity, fuel, restrooms and restaurants. The Porto Conte marina is a natural cove, well protected from the wind, spanning approximatly 6km. To the west of this, the area is closed off by the promontory of Capo Caccia. This is a very delightful sea area, surrounded by cliffs. Inside this area you will find the the marinas of Capo Caccia and Isola Piana. Inside the bay there is also the mooring of Cala Tramariglio, a small marina which also offers basic ammenities and services.

Several beaches overlook the Gulf: The Lido, Maria Pia, Punta Negra, Bombarde, Lazzaretto, Pineta Mugoni and Dragunara. It is also reccomended that you visit the beaches of Porticciolo and Porto Ferro, located just 3 and 5 nautical miles to the North, North-East of the Island Piana.

The marine protected areas of Capo Caccia - Isola Piana and the Regional Natural Park of Porto Conte have been well preserved by conservationists. Thus, biodiversity in these regions is extensive.

At the end of the promontory of Capo Caccia, to the west, there is the famous Grotta di Nettuno. The Grotta di Nettuno is a geological wonder, characterized by a system of salty lakes, extending approximately 2500 metres

To visit the Grotta di Nettuno there are two alternatives:

  • By sea, departing from the port of Alghero or from Cala Dragunara
  • By land, via the "Escala del Cabirol" (the stairway of roe deer), a staircase of 660 steps "carved" on the west ridge of the promontory

The historic centre of Alghero has maintained elements of the Catalan conquest. It is protected by large walls and towers, which, when seen from the sea, make it look like a fortress. The old village is a labyrinth of narrow streets and old houses, restaurants, shops and craft shops.

In the surrounding areas you can visit the archaeological sites of the Nuragic Village of Palmavera and the Necropolis of Anghelu Ruju. Those who love nature and the outdoors can visit the Regional Park of Porto Conte and the marine protected area of Capo Caccia-Isola Piana, which are just a few kilometers from the city. These places are unique for the variety of flora and fauna species you can find there. In town, we recommend a visit to the Archaeological Museum, to the Coral Museum and to Diocesan museum of Arte Sacra.
