Costa Rei – undiscovered destination in Sardinia

Costa Rei is one of the undiscovered tourist areas located on the southeast coast of Sardinia. The coast is lined with gently rolling hills that are covered with lush Mediterranean vegetation. The area is characterized by long sandy beaches that alternate with small romantic bays.

The shores are washed by clean and warm azure blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Since Costa Rei is located about 200 kilometres from the coast of the African continent, the main summer season lasts from May until the end of October.

Costa Rei is situated in a bay with a wide beach, which is composed of fine white sand. Here you can try almost all water sports, including windsurfing and paragliding. For a small fee you can rent chairs and umbrellas.

The beach gradually slopes into the sea, no worries if you are coming here with small children. They can play here or even start learning to swim. Near the beach rises Monte Nai – a dominant hill which is 140 meters high.

Individual accommodation that was built here was nicely set in a green garden that does not affect the landscape. There is a lot of entertaining animation programs prepared for families with children in this summer resort during the whole season.
