Situated near the iconic beaches of Sardinia’s northern coastline, the town of Arzachena is home to archaeological wonders and robust Italian wines. Modern marinas and luxury resorts draw visitors from abroad, while 4,000-year-old remains of the Nuragic civilisation dot the surrounding landscape.
Things to do in Arzachena
Take a dip in one of the best beaches along the Mediterranean, Spiaggia Capriccioli. Capriccioli is a family-oriented beach with shimmering white sand and clear water. Take refreshments and bring a beach umbrella, as Spiaggia Capriccioli is purposefully kept undeveloped to retain its natural beauty.
Interested in ancient history? Nuraghe la Prisgiona is the preserved remains of an ancient Nuragic village. Discover the historic stone homes, wells and meeting places by walking along a 4000-year-old stone path that weaves through ruins. Don’t miss the nearby Tomb of the Giants, a mysterious Nuragic grave filled with intricate stone structures.
