I adored this beach. The sea is crystal clear and of a wonderful turquoise, and the little, rice like sand is magical. It is a small piece of heaven. I had the impression that even the fish I saw while snorkeling were friendly here :)...More

Perfect wide beach, with white sand. Beautyfull area with a good surf training center. Important: you have to pay for parking only in the front street. Other, smaller streets are for free!

Nice beach a few km form Cabras and Riola Sardo. Wild as most of the Sinis beaches, sometimes windy.

We never see a special beach like is Arutas because the sand is made from quartz. The water is clean and transparent. There is as well a bar restaurant.

It's a beautiful beach with this spectacular sand made of quartz that keeps a cool temperature even under 40 degrees at midday. Cool! You have to be prepared to the crowd, especially in peak season, but it's worth it. And if you're lucky as we...More

Yes, it is something special; a beach full of quartz "grain". But the nice rosa colouring we did not observe. Without this you get a relatively small beach that steeply declines in the sea, so not very accessible for young kids. There is one beach...More

Drove two hours from the east coast to Is Arutas, well worth the trip. Beautiful white beach and crystal clear water. A bit crowded, but that is understandable, the beach is great. Parking fee at the parking lots, only cash no credit cards. There are...More
