A little cove, a secret refuge (almost) with crystal clear waters, framed by the island of Tavolara.
The beach of Porto Ainu stands out for its shoreline, with large grain sand in a light grey colour. The colour of the sea, from turquoise to cobalt blue, transforms the pale sand and the Mediterranean sea grass into an enchanted setting. This cove is protected on the east side by a strip of land that closes this section of sea, which is immensely popular with surfers. The waters have great appeal for divers and snorkelling enthusiasts. Behind the beach is a small pond, part of which dries up in the summer season.
How to get here
From the centre of Budoni, continue south on the SS125 road. Take the turning for Tanaunella, turn left at the top of the hill, and follow the signs to Porto Ainu.
