Sand, pebbles, wide caves, and the charm of the sea of Sardinia. Welcome to Cala Luna

Yes, it is true, the initiative of Skyscanner, the international flight search engine, has clear self-promotional commercial purposes, but the beauty of the places described is real and highlights some of the most beautiful views of our coasts. In fact, as every year, Skyscanner has compiled its personal ranking of the most beautiful beaches in Italy, choosing many from southern Italy and Sardinia but also fishing from many other pearls of rare beauty scattered along our coastlines. So let’s take a look at this top 15, tell us which one is your favorite.

1 – Tonnarella dell’Uzzo, Zingaro Nature Reserve (TP) / Sicily

In the heart of the Zingaro reserve in the province of Trapani: fine sand, Caribbean water, she’s the chart winner. An enchanted place fortunately quite protected by the nature reserve

2. Cala dei Gabbiani, Baunei Coast (OG) / Sardinia

Sardinia is one of the pearls of Italy, a place that attracts tourists from all over the world. Seagull Cove, in Ogliastra, well represents the richness of its natural landscapes

3. Cala Feola, Ponza (LT) / Lazio

The Pontine Islands, a paradise once enchanted but still capable of offering spectacular scenery such as this cove

4. Plemmirio Marine Protected Area (SR) / Sicily

Let’s return to Sicily, this time along the southeastern coast: sheer cliffs alternating with small beaches with emerald water and dreamy backdrops for those who love diving excursions

5. Marina Grande, Positano (SA) / Campania

Although today the Amalfi Coast has become a symbol of glamour and entertainment, losing its former charm and opening up to mass tourism, its coastline undoubtedly remains among the beauties of Italy

6. Capo Graziano beach, Filicudi, Aeolian Islands (ME) / Sicily

Filicudi, among the smallest in the Aeolian archipelago, is still an unspoiled paradise. Cape Graziano beach is a natural bay that is considered somewhat like the island’s harbor

7. Torre Sant’Andrea Beach, Melendugno (LE) / Apulia

Salento, before being a worldly destination for summer tourism, is one of the most beautiful places in Italy because of its territory. St. Andrew sums up its magic well, with cliffs overlooking the sea and crystal clear water

8. Cala Cipolla, Domus de Maria (CA) / Sardinia

Caribbean? No, simply Sardinia, one of the places the whole world envies us, and Cala Cipolla is one of them

9. Fiorenzuola di Focara, Monte San Bartolo Park (PU) / Marche region.

The upper Adriatic Sea, although many people consider it little, also offers glimpses of great beauty such as the fine sand of this coastline

10. Punta Rossa Bay, Mattinata (FG) / Apulia

A corner of paradise, still in Puglia, Punta Rossa Bay is a pocket beach, squeezed between the rocks and its crystal clear emerald waters

11. Padulella Beach, Portoferraio, Elba (LI) / Tuscany

The Tuscan archipelago could not be missing from this special ranking, well represented by this beach on the island of Elba

12. Arco Magno beach, San Nicola Arcella (CS) / Calabria

A corner of paradise among the rocks, a unique spectacle offered by the beautiful land that is Calabria

13. Mottagrossa Beach, Punta Aderci Nature Reserve, Vasto (CH) / Abruzzo

The Gulf of Vasto is characterized by a long sandy shoreline with clear, emerald waters and unmistakable fine sand

14. Cala Luna, Gulf of Orosei (NU) / Sardinia

Sand, pebbles, large caves, and the charm of the sea of Sardinia. Welcome to Cala Luna
Liguria is one of the regions in Italy where subdivision for beach resorts has distorted the coastal landscape. Nevertheless, the spectacle of Paraggi never leaves one indifferent
