Located in an isolated zone and of great naturalistic beauty, the beach of Piscinas, on the seashore of the Costa Verde, is surrounded by some kilometres of tall dunes (arguably the tallest in Europe), still alive and modelled by the mistral wind.
The beach is the ideal environment for long walks on the sand, especially in the early hours of the morning, when it is even possible to glimpse the deer that actually go down to the sea and, in the month of June, the sea turtles that lay their eggs.
The beach of Piscinas, like many of those along the Costa Verde and the western coast of Sardinia, where the sea is rarely calm, is one of the favourite spots for surfers that, especially in winter, practise their sport thanks to the habitual presence of long, high waves.
This beach is also well known for the presence of a vast area, where it is possible to practice naturism.
Not far from the beach can be found the village of Ingurtosu, a once booming town that has been abandoned after the mines around the area have been closed.
